Battle of Raab - Blucher AAR

Post by Captain Darling » Sat May 27, 2017 8:25 pm

Hey All,

Played one of of the scenarios put together by the 'oldmeldrumwargamesgroup' for the Battle of Raab, June 1809.

We used Blucher rules and 6mm armies. We replicated history with a French victory but the battle followed a very different path to the historical one. It was a near run thing with the French securing victory on the last turn by capturing both their objectives, the town of Szabadhegy and the fortified farm of Kismeyer.

The antagonists...

Looks to have been an excellent game. I have a couple of mates that game a bit with Blucher so might have to drop in on a game soon.

Thanks for your comments everyone!

We'll definitely be revisiting the Blucher rules using my 6mm armies...
