Lobositz using Black Powder
For this battle I used my Altstein and Eisenburg-Essling soldiers in place of Prussians and Austrians. I used The Wargame Companion by C.S.Grant, a wonderful book, for inspiration and information. Units were broken down into 14-16 figure infantry battalions and 8 figure cavalry regiments. I used Black Powder rules substituting centimetres for inches throughout, effectively making my 6x4 table into a 15x10.
Game over!, a narrow Austrian victory, this battle took most of the day and I was quite exhausted from all that marching and counter-marching.
