1809 Game Report

Continuing on with the game report:

Austrians close in on Bavarians in woods.  Trust me, that darker green area is woods.  The trees have been moved to facilitate game play.  Not the prettiest, but it works.

Austrians (and Hungarians...) step forward.

Hahaha!  Zay are nothing but Austrian scum!  We French laugh at them!  (You're supposed to say that line with a classicly bad French accent, favored by wargamers the world over).

French General points the way to victory!

Austrian guns at the river pound the French next to the village. 

Does anybody know why some photos are posted with this goofy rotation?  I can't figure it out.  Anyway, the Austrians finally reach the river on the far flank and start to cross.  This is about the time things really start to turn bad for the French/Bavarian army.

Near the end of the game...French on the left flank still hold, but the army morale teeters.

Poof!  The French flank begins to waver and fall back....or rout.   Shortly after this, the French ran out of Army Morale Points, and promptly failed their first test, ending the game.

I really like the look and function of my new terrain system.  The running joke in the group is how many terrain systems I've gone through in my search for perfection.   I'll post more on the terrain in a later post.


  1. Brent,
    I think you counted 7 different terrain systems all of which would be the envy of wargamers.

  2. I think there have been at least 7 different systems. "Perfection" doesn't come easily!
