|The Duke of Brunswick arrives with his merry men.|
|Jerome's Light Infantry head for the wood|
|The British troops head for the cornfield|
|Slowly the Dutch-Belgium Light troops are forced back.|
|The Brunswick Light troops arrive to steady the flank|
|On the other flank, the British Jagers attack.|
In the space of a few turns, the momentum on the field has changed.
|Great overview, the French attack is being squeezed on the flanks.|
With an average CaP score of 2 - 3, the French are forced to give ground in the centre to avoid being outflanked.
|French Heavy Cavalry arrives.|
However having the CaP points to get them to the front would be another problem.
|Reille finally leads an attack on Pierrepoint|
|The French 'Grand Battery' & a French Infantry Division are starved of CaPs|
|The Brunswick troops hold the flank.|
|Battle for the cornfield....|
|... the French are forced back.|
|The Brunswick Horse Artillery open up on the French.|
|Pierrepoint is about to fall.|
|Allied troops advance into the cornfield|
|For any chance of a minor French victory, that wood will need to be captured.|
|The Duke of Brunswick leads forward an attack.|
|The French are being forced out of the cornfield.|
|Splendid, Spav builds enough CaPs for combined arms attack.|
|The game is only going in one direction now.|
|The French Infantry Brigade in the cornfield is destroyed.|
|The Allied line is balancing out now.|
|Reille finally gets back to the front line with Jerome's troops.|
|I have a brief flicker of imagination for a Cavalry charge..... very brief.|
|On the French right flank, another brief flicker of movement.|
|The Duke of Brunswick continues his advance.|
|Time is running out for the French.|
|The French right flank, I'm screaming at the CaP die!|
|Oh wonderful, the British Guards Division arrives.|
|It's now 1900 hours in game time, with an hour to go.|
There's no way the French are going to force this one now.
We agree to terms, it's a draw.
We changed sides & had another game with very different results. Spav couldn't get the French moving, with most of the Allied strong-points holding out until Allied reinforcements arrived. a tough scenario for the French player, if you are looking for a challenging game, this is the one!
