night fell before the Kopf/Enteberg forces could defeat the Brussians, thank goodness we had no cavalry left. Precision firing saw the demise of a couple of Enteberg infantry and cavalry brigades that ventured too close. A good game, some curly command and control issues arose. End of game pics....
no, actually..the infantry did't come to grip till quite late in the game, and the Brussians did mince up two brigades of Enetburgs very quickly, but the absolute destruction of all the Brussian cavalry had rather taken the gloss off their usually cheerful Dalek style "exterminate" approach to a day out so there was a bit of faffing around by them, combine with a lot pf faffing around by the Kopf-Schlager infantry who spent a bit of time failing to understand the simplest of advance order. Let it be Known that the Kopf-Schlager regiment of Horse Pz. Ferdinand of Alba, der Viele Gluchlichers, performed magnificently in the face of mind games from the Brussian commander and being flanked to emerge victorious with the destruction of two Brussian Cavalry brigades to their credit..Enteburg and Habishwald did learn one important thing..if Brussian infantry has elected to voluntarily retreat it is best to let them go and under no conditions should one try and encourage their departure..
not this time..starkadder wrote:Should I assume that the Prussians made strawberry jam of Kopf-Schlager and Enteburg?
we had no cavalry left and were in the midst of retiring. Von Manning saw an opportunity he could not resist (got an "attack" command roll which requires you to go forward). Our front line came into contact with Entebergs and after a fierce volley the Brussians charged in to finish off 2 brigades with the bayonet...Von Entebergs cavalry got ahead of themselves and charged Prussian Grenadiers (again as a result of an "attack" order)...not a good thing especially if you don't contact and are left in short range at the end of the pulse....they got blown away in the next firing phase..
The Kopfschlager cavalry column was moving to our left flank ready for the final onslaught but night fell....
well they are usually led by Pz.Ferdinand of Alba, "General Lucky" but he was on holiday in Melbourne this week so I backed myself..akula has more to say about the other f flank..he did get shot at by freikorps , which it would seem were the least of his worries..
