We fought the morning action where Lannes held off the Russians until Napoleon arrived.
In the pics the French are on the left. Grouchy's cavalry on the far side of the Fluss, Lannes' infantry on the near side.
The time taken for the Russians to beat Lannes was about 3 hours - better than history so the game was judged a Russian victory. Nevertheless, even though victorious, the Russians were in no fit state to face Napoleon's fresh troops. Most of their troops on their left being Shaken & their cavalry broken on the right.
We used M2M & they worked well giving a good Napoleonic feel. The combat system could benefit with a little streamlining & I'm working on that.
