KS Napoleon Game Friday, Aug 7th 20:00BST

Post  Uncle Billy on Thu Aug 06, 2015 3:24 pm



With the rest of the Allied army rapidly marching east, the  Prince of Orange and his vanguard are tasked with opening the Friedland Strasse and Luenenburg Strasse ahead of the advance.  Till now, this has not been overly difficult as French opposition has been light.  Now however, the two roads are rapidly converging.  Our cavalry patrols report a strong French cavalry presence from Sakallen to Nordenburg.  The line appears to be uninterrupted.  It is unknown if French infantry is nearby.  Both roads and the ground surrounding them, must be cleared of enemy by nightfall which is at 18:00.

Thanks Kevin for yet another scenario.

I hope to make this game but am not certain yet - as in last week's Friday game it may be wise if I only take a brigade. Maitland's boys look like the kind of T1000s soldiers I enjoy leading.

Are you sure you're up handling 3 battalions?

which is exactly why you'll be given command of von Kruse's Brigade Twisted Evil - you can't always have all the fun Razz

I should be around too - not sure about the rest of the weekend...

Von Kruse's Nassauers are cool too. Very heroic performance at Papelotte/La Haye. Would be honoured to command them.

They usually want to watch some French movie where people talk for 3 hours and nothing happens. Sleep

well - I do hope that the movie is worth it Very Happy  - because I am missing yet another opportunity to play as the British - 2nd time in a row now... without a doubt I will be around when we play the Russians again... Evil or Very Mad

but I think a general order can be given to the British: hide behind a hill - don't move at all and claim victory without having done anything really except beat off every attack...

PS: be sure that your uniform is in order when you report to the CinC!

TALLY HOW CHAPS!

Will try to be there and try out my retuned connection but would probably be good to take a BDE and if needed more but be close to the CINC

I'd like to participate on the British side, but it would be my first attempt online therefore a complete noob! I should like to have the most junior position possible and be following orders delivered by courier if possible.

My game has the K mods.

We can't say a word so you can lead us to victory in the near future when we replay it.

I think Kevin's computer went off, and he was the host. So we just played half the time, it was plenty of action except for the reserve.

I'm not sure, since my division and Morsey's cavalry were about to deliver the coup de grace and snaffle up the enemy baggage train. No doubt that wasn't acceptable so our host accidentally tripped over a few cables.
