Today I started a mini campaign using Neil Thomas' rules.
The action was scenario 14 and took place at Stammfeld.
The scenario has the Eisenburgers attempting to hold both the town of Stammfeld and the large hill overlooking the area.
Von Essling placed his guns on the high ground.
And put a strong force in and around the town.
The Altsteiners arrive!.
Von Bruckenheim decides to bypass Stammfeld and capture the high ground and masses his forces to do so.
Von Essling advances against the small covering force.
The Altstein cavalry come under fire.
As does the covering force.
The rules per se do not have Generals in them but I made a house rule for them.
I allowed a General to join a unit and roll one d6 to rally them, here Von Essling rallies the Grenadiers to only one hit point.
Under heavy musket fire the first of Von Esslings battalions breaks.
In the foreground the Altstein Dragoons break their opponents.
A closer view.
Fierce fighting near the town.
The Dragoons charge the guns!. But are broken.
Altstein infantry rout from the fray.
The Grenadiers break the remaing Altstein cavalry and Von Bruckenheim is unhorsed, wounded and carried from the field by a brave trooper of Romany heritage named Jung. I ruled that a six rolled when a General is with a unit that takes hits will mean he is a casualty.
Weingartners jagers are under severe pressure.
But force the Essling Fusiliers to break!.
The Grenadier are broken and Von Essling falls wounded too.
The light infantry shoot at each other indecisively.
Now the Altstein infantry advance to the guns and fire!.
And the gunners cannot withstand the hail of lead.
