Prussians vs French - Lubeck 1806

French under Marshal Bernadotte pursue Bulucher into the Hanseatic Port city of Lubeck. A Republic to Empire scenario out of Wargames Illustrated May 2010 issue using ITGM

Pictured are the advancing French forces initially and devastated the column catching and putting to rout or retreat parts of the Prussian supply column. We had some problems with the morale failures causing several supply wagons in effect getting "extra" movement towards the town. I was able to put one unit in emergency square. And surprised Andy with the hidden units. The prussians in the walled church put a hurt on half of his French cavalry. He then has begun an assault on the Church with the Legere regiment.

I split the Prusian Hussars in half sending one squadron at the 95th French Line (poles) and the other squadron in the direction of musketry where the jaegers had engaged French skirmishers. As fate would have it The French had the misfortune of rolling for reinforcements and his heavy battery came on in the face of my
cavalry. But remembering an old CLS rule no unit should be charged coming onto the table - Not sure how Republic to Empire works this out of ITGM for that matter.

We did discover one thing after we played the first turn (I made the game table too long) its supposed to be an 8 x 6 game and I made the field more of a 10 by 6. We have doubled movement distance to make up for it. for a few turns.

Spent most of the evening discussing an upcoming trip (more on that later) We only got three turns in tonight.
