Game Today, Sunday Dec. 28th, 20:00GMT

If people are interested, I have another small scenario, this time its the French vs Russians.  It will take place on another random map.  It will also feature the smaller divisions like we had yesterday.  Again we will need 6 players at a minimum, but more is better since that will give us some brigade commanders.



The allies have been making steady progress pushing the French out of Germany towards France.  The city of Ulm has been invested by a mixed corps of Austrians and Prussians.  Supplies in the city are reported low and the defenders may be on the verge of capitulation.  Such an occurrence would be yet another blow to the Emperor's prestige.  Marshal Devout and his corps has been given the task of relieving the city.

This move east by a large French force has not gone unnoticed.  With uncharacteristic swiftness, General Schwarzenberg ordered a Russian corps under the command of General Tuchkov to intercept and prevent the French force from reaching Ulm.  For a Russian commander, simple orders are always the best.  Defeating the French is the best of all.

The battle will likely take place near the Eichstadt Strasse.  Holding the key road intersection at the village of Hohenwart will be crucial to the French advance.  From there, it is an easy march to the besieged city.

AAAARGH!..yet another game I cannot make.

This has been torture but I have enjoyed reading the reports and battle replays. Thanks, fellas.

Great to see some 'new' lads getting into the KS HITS fraternity, too.

The good news for me is that I have several weekends coming up where I am not working.

Looking forward to joining you in the saddle soon.

Oooh, Russians! Can I have a Russkie division please, can I, can I? bounce bounce bounce

Just so I can grasp the strategy side of things, Ulm is off map to the NE, yes?

Yes, Ulm is somewhere off the NE corner of the map.

It's really a simple matter of getting your priorities straight. Very Happy Not to worry, I'm sure there will be a game next weekend.

We are getting used to finish our battles with just a couple of battalions per side, with whole commands gone away and divisional generals reduced to the role of artillery commanders. Twisted Evil

Yesterday and saturday I was not aware of events happening farther away than the range of my guns.

The most important lesson for me was the handling of cavalry, sometimes learned the hard way charging a infantry square in woods (the AI) and reinforcing failure (myself) with another squadron.

I was waiting the order to attack and saw Mark/Soldier's center division getting fully engaged, so decided to get into the fight hitting the Russian right, we took the hill and the objective. I decided to keep the pressure on the remnants of the division to my front, but realized that other Russian troops were getting the upper hand in their struggle with Mark to my right.

Reported my position and saw Mark's troops coming to join my division.

We organized a defense there, and that was all we did till the end of the battle. The Russians immediately put an attack to our position on 3 sides, we repulsed the troops coming in the open, as we had many guns 5 batteries I believe. They tried again from the woods to the northeast, we lost some guns but after some clashes we repulsed them too.

Then all was quiet, we were on the hill sorrounded by a sea of bodies, and no enemies in sight apart from Russian batteries to our front. I had 1 battalion, 3 squadrons and a mess of guns pointing in all directions with batteries and recaptured guns mixed.

I saw what seemed a Russian infantry brigade and 2  or 3 squadrons coming from the southeast, and I knew we were not going to repulse their attack. No

I was so busy since I started my attack, I remembered we had another division on the field, but didn't have time to ask. I assumed we were the only survivors and the troops coming over the ridge had destroyed Kevin's command.

I have loaded the autosave and Ron's troops were really in sight from my position when the battle ended, but yesterday didn't realize until I watched the replay.

I enjoy immensely playing with you guys. I love you
