Austerlitz - the North Flank
Austerlitz is difficult to simulate as a wargame in 28mm because of the sheer size of the battlefield, but the action on the plain at the north end of the battle makes a nice battle within a battle where Bagration's Corps fought Lannes' Corps. In the real battle Bagration was supported by Leichenstein's Cavalry Corps & Lannes by part of Murat's cavalry Corps. On this occasion we fought Bagration v. Lannes to keep the game to a size more manageable for 4 players on a Tuesday night. We intend to fight the action again with the extra cavalry & a bigger table at a later date.
