1809 Campaign on the Danube

1809 Campaign on the Danube

Post  Mr. Digby on Sat Jan 06, 2018 3:36 am

I am going to be running another of these small-and-quick campaigns using the format we have done in the past. This time, to make life even easier, I'll run the 1809 campaign because we have all the OOBs already written and I won't have to create them as we go (which is a fair bit of work).

The player team will play the French side on the strategic map but the Austrians in the tactical battles (using Scourge of War) vs the French AI/

To offset the higher ability of a player team vs the AI, I will downrate the Austrian stats so that the players face a more challenging situation.

I plan to begin the campaign this Sunday at 19:00 GMT, our usual online meeting time.

It would help if another person in our group would please write a back-up scenario in the event that the campaign generates a battle that is too complex to make into a scenario in the time available, so that we have a game to play if all else fails.

After the rather weird result of turn 13 we played on Sunday where I set Massena's Corps to an aggressive stance working on the basis it was all at Eckmuhl and would attack towards Straubing - but then the parts of it that were in Regensberg decided to attack NW over the Danube...

I just wasn't happy with the way the AI does this (aka umpire error) so I ran the turn again and reset Massena to defend stance as he advanced on Straubing until he at least gets his corps assembled.

What happened on 13th April II (parallel universe) was that the Austrians NW of Regensburg have now attacked Vandamme's corps in the town. Oddly enough... only with a single division! However since after yesterday's showing, its obvious our player team is up to the challenge of attacking a stronger force behind a wide river I thought this would be a fun game to play on Wednesday.

It might be over quite quickly so if someone can keep another scenario in reserve that would be appreciated.

We will use the Wavre map with Wavre being Regensburg. People will be commanding individual batteries if more than 3 players show up! Here is the situation:



Situation and Orders:

13th April: Attack and secure the town of Regensburg on the south bank of the Danube! Only Vandamme's weak VIII Corps of lacklustre Wurttembergers holds the town. Vorwarts!

4. Armeekorps: Feldmarschall Leutnant Franz von Rosenberg-Orsini (9256 Inf. 22 Guns)

 Division Dedovich: Feldmarschall Leutnant Martin Dedovich (9256 Inf. 22 Guns)
   Brigade Grill: Generalmajor Josef von Grill (4951 Inf. 7 battalions Avg. Exp. 3.8 )
   Brigade Neustädter: Generalmajor Johann von Neustädter (4305 Inf. 7 battalions Avg. Exp. 3.9)
   11. Brigade Batterie: Hauptmann 11. Brigade Batterie (8 Guns Avg. Exp. 4.0)
   12. Brigade Batterie: Hauptmann 12. Brigade Batterie (8 Guns Avg. Exp. 3.0)
   9. Position Batterie: Hauptmann 9. Position Batterie (6 Guns Avg. Exp. 4.0)
