Napoleonic Polish defending the Village of Maloystarvets

Used Wellington's Rules again last night - Luke wanted a study break so we broke in these old set of rules. With a battalion of Polish defending the Village of Maloystarvets barricade. The Russians under Luke advanced with a regiment strength brigade against the Poles in full tilt columns of attack with one battalion going into line. The Poles defended gallantly unloading devastating volleys
into the attacking Russians. As Lukes luck would have it he rolled a 4 twice and a 3 for his roll to advance into close combat. Luckily for him the Polish commander was killed by a stray musket round and this forced a morale check on the Polish infantry who fell back a move abandoning the barricade they had defended so well moments before.

the straggler system in these rules is interesting - short range musket fire is devastating.
