The French were huddled on the hill in a formation best described as a giant blob, and stayed on that hill for the duration of the game, gleefully firing off round after round of Chassepot ammunition at the flailing Prussians.
The game was a disaster for the Prussians - they ended up losing by 16 points - a crushing loss.
The campaign ended after 4 games with 1 win for the Prussians, 3 for the French. 10 Campaign Points for the Prussians, 26 for the French. At this rate, I'd say the French are eyeing the German border...
One item that was noticeable was that in all three losses, the Prussians made little if any use of their vastly superior artillery.

So - the campaign season is over, and I'm thinking of trying some WW2 stuff for the next game at the end of June. I'm rebasing my stuff and working on a new WW2 rule "set" for the game. I'm wanting to get to a set that fits multiple scales (unit could be a squad, platoon, company, battalion) with somewhat minimal changes that would allow players to play any scale of game that they wanted without learning an entirely new set of rules. We'll see how that works out....
