Black powder again More complicated than I thought!

Finishing up that battle of last week with a few minor corrections tonight
Should be interesting with the Cuirassiers hitting that unit in the center and doing the melee right this time.

Well the Cuirassier melee was interesting Steven dashed out Huge losses bu my saving rolls saved me.
But eventually the Infantry Unit Broke - We had interesting melees with squares by infantry and cavalry at least cossacks with lances. Confusion reigned in our built up area Melee. One Russian Battalion held up 5 French/Polish Battalions before succumbing to the onslaught. (Course I kept giving a win to a drawn melee to the defenders) I think it was rules creep from Fire and Fury in SOA 21 last weekend. Anyway the French finally gained the upper hand.
Pics and commentary to follow - should get a couple more games in this month

The blunder move was extremely funny (number 5) Square to Line and charge - he rolled a blunder move with Cavalry in support - rather than get complicated - I let him charge with the infantry in Line and follow with his cavalry. I can see keeping track of markers can be difficult.

Still an interesting set of Rules!
Then Super Bowl Sunday - Go Giants
