Today I'm insisting on an 18th century scrap. Lee's getting a bit too sure of herself....

Here’s an idea: have a go at an ACW battle and you go Lee.

Phew. Won, but I might as well have left my artillery in Berlin.

The first shot of the battle drove my skirmishers out of a useful village by setting it on fire. Fortunately, my carefully reserved cuirassiers were to prove useful in the later battle (though not as useful as they would have been had the dice not rolled steadily against Prussia). It was amusing that I'd just assured Lee that cavalry were still dangerous even in a modern battle like this, "as I shall now show you." Following those rash words, I saw the Garde du Corps beaten off in melee by a line of Hungarian fusiliers.

The scrap on the other side of the stream saw serious casualties on both sides. Commendations to the von Bayreuth dragoons, who lived up to their reputation.

A well-timed charge by my hussars caught the Austrian artillery off guard, but was beaten off in melee. And this although Freddy had somehow got involved in the charge. Hiss growl spit.

The Prussian infantry did what they're good at in the middle, though the Austrians put up a brave fight. Lee's getting good at concentrating her fire. Fortunately, she hasn't quite learned how to coordinate the three arms yet, and you don't start winning horse and musket battles until you've got that one right.

Having a go at Kolin next week. In many ways this is THE horse and musket period: there is a real balance between the three arms and cavalry are not pretty but useless. Good to see another SYW game here, particularly as the Pendraken range is such a good one.
