Having spent much of the past week 3D printing & painting cavalry I set up an encounter battle with lots of cavalry. Steve chose to command the French, so I had the Russians this week.
Russians: 4 line, 1 grenadier, 4 cossacks, 2 hussars, 2 dragoons, 1 field & 1 horse battery.
French: 3 line, 1 legere, 4 lancers, 2 dragoons, 1 field 7 1 horse battery.
The French are advancing their infantry through their cavalry on their right flank & covering their left with artillery & dragoons.
On the right, the French dragoons have charged the cossacks.
On the right, the dragoons have won one & lost one against the Cosssacks.
The Polish lancers have charged the hussars on the ridge & though initially successful, the second line of hussars is hold on.
On the right, the dragoons have turned to attack the Cossack flank, but the Cossacks managed to turn & face them.
In the centre the Russian dragoons are suffering under artillery fire, but doing a job plugging gap.
It was close run thing. The French made a well planned attack against a well planned defense, but the Russians got the breaks in the critical combats.
