La Haye Sainte Black Powder Napoleonic's Game One

First Game with David Parente La Haye Sainte Full Size Napoleonics - Blunder Move Artillery

Rob Tuttle joined the French Side with a new player Calvin on the British side with David Parente

We divided La Haye Sainte into a 4 block BUA. Used reduced Musket and Rifle ranges and reduced movement for both cavalry and infantry, also Artillery. Murat and Ney were in command.

La Haye Sainte other terrain is just for asthetics

4 Brigades of French with a Battalion of Chasseurs of the Guard

The British Moving to resist the French Juggernaut

OOOPS the British Artillery Blunders attempting to re-position itself

The Blunder Move straight forward

The British Highlander commander in the Highland spirit
as he outflanked and enfiladed the Polish 3rd Battalion of line

Nasty Melee as Highlanders teach the French not to present a flank to an opponent
 (blame it on Ney not seeing the Highlanders for the tall corn)
 Quatra Brau all over again

Proper French Advance in the old way The British held for one turn and then well overwhelming force

Round Two of the Melee lucky for the Polish they disordered the Highlanders

Rob assaults Le Haye Sainte (2nd Blunder Move took part of the 95th Rifles off table for three turns)

Rob continues the Assault into La Haye Sainte with the 8th Legere
followed by the Polish 1st Battalion and Neu Chatel Battalion

The bloody fight as the Polish

Rob Tuttle - Commands the French Assault

David and Calvin contemplate the next British advance as the 
French Chassuers of the Guard retreated from the Broken Polish ROUT

French prpare to advance

The Highlanders are caught disordered by french Dragoons and the Chasseurs of the Old Guard

British support of La Haye Saint fails

Remains of British Brigade covering retreat of British Highlanders

Out flanked British Brigades

French crush the British left Flank but the Prussians are not far off
and Ney has expended the French Cavalry Reserve

The 95th and 60th rifles are out matched by the strength of french forces in La Haye Sainte assault

The Fight in La Haye Sainte Continues
