I can play today at the usual time, 14:00 EST, 19:00 GMT.

In case no-one else has anything ready for us, I offer this for your delectation:

= = = = = = = = = =

Situation:

Eastern Bavaria, September 1809

The great battles of May and July near Vienna at Aspern, Essling and Wagram stopped Napoleon's offensive on the Danube. Erzherzog Karl's brilliant counterattack on the second day at Wagram comprehensively smashed our enemy. His field army wrecked, the French Emperor abandoned our capital and withdrew along the Danube to winter his tired troops in Bavaria. Erzherzog Karl has conducted a close pursuit along the river, pressing upon the French rearguards all the way. The IV Armeekorps of von Rosenberg-Orsini is now leading the pursuit and yesterday, after crossing to the south bank of the Danube at Landshut on the Bavarian border, the lead divisions have encamped overnight on the bluffs overlooking the river. The next morning our cavalry screens reported encounters with fresh enemy units.

Intelligence:

It appears that once again the Emperor has magicked up a new force to feed the war machine. Our patrols have captured a few cavalry troopers from regiments we have not encountered previously and the general trend of reports is that the retreating enemy with all his vulnerable baggage is passing along the Dingelfingen Strasse and covered by this fresh rearguard formation which we should assume is of corps strength.

Objectives:

No matter. The Archduke commands that we press on. Perhaps this new enemy screen is just a thin crust and one hammer blow will shatter it, sending it reeling back with the rest of the broken Grande Armee. Von Rosenberg-Orsini has been tasked by Imperial Headquarters with probing forwards and conducting a reconaissance in force. We are to operate along the axis of the Dingelfingen Highway, our right flank secured on the Danube, our left no further south than Pfetrach, Giberskirchen, Aw, Nandestatt and Halspach. We must operate on a concentrated front to apply maximum pressure and divisions must adhere to narrow frontages, exchanging brigades as necessary to maintain momentum. Additional cavalry has been attached to the divisions of the corps to exploit any breakthrough we may achieve.

Our objectives are therfore threefold:

1) Test the strength of the new enemy facing us and find a weakness, breaking through his position.
2) Pursue the already retreating French along the river valley.
3) Secure the Dingelfingenstrasse.

We can achieve the first objective by means of military results today.

We can achieve the second objective by pushing pursuit forces all the way to the western map edge where the Dingelfingenstrasse passes close against the south bank of the Danube.

We can achieve the third objective by securing the following road junctions:

#1) North-West of Gibers-kirchen.
#2) North-West of Aw.
#3) West of Aw.
#4) Further west of Aw where a T junction is formed near the river.

To be secure a road junction must be free of the enemy and well behind our fighting line.

I'll be there.  For a moment I was concerned that Dedovich wasn't part of the grand fox hunt.  But I see now, all is well. By the way, how did we manage to secure the city?

When it comes to matters of daring feats of arms, Kevin, chances are the answer lay in the capacity of a dashing officer named von Charmead. That name is typically synonymous with words like “victory” or “reset the game and reduce enemy strength if victory was not achieved the first time”

Sunday's battle saw the complete defeat of the French rearguard by an Austrian Korps led by the military genius of Erzherzog Johann. Clearly superior generalship is necessary for any victory. king

Or perhaps merely a scenario not penned by a rabid sadist? Razz

Tuesday's battle was a fine victory for the French side. Two, French divisions held off and defeated 5 Russian counterparts, while the other three French divisions just strolled about the map looking at all the pretty scenery. Typical. Embarassed

Are you sure you are playing in the same games as us Kevin? Wink

My division broke through the Russian centre and occupied all three objectives. Our cavalry arrived to secure the area we were tasked to take. Its not my fault if you chose to bludgeon your head against the strongest part of the enemy position in a frontal attack. Tsk, tsk.

Friday's battle against the French showed that with proper leadership, no bridge is too far. Miko had another hard day of it, but sacrifices had to be made for the glory of the Motherland. Maybe today he'll get a bit of a respite. Crying or Very sad

Sunday's battle ended in defeat for the French. While one objective was captured after a prolonged fight between cavalry divisions, the 2nd was not, due to a blatant disobedience to orders. The court marshal proceedings are due to begin this week , with the execution to be performed immediately afterwards. Twisted Evil

We are using the Montebello map. It's one that comes with the mod.

If Kevin or anyone else has a scenario, all well and good. I have a PvP scenario ready to go for 8 players, France-Russia 1812. I also have the opening game of the campaign if people are in the mood for that. Its quite a small action on a 2.5 mile map. That can be played either vs the AI or PvP. Both games use maps supplied with the mod so no need for payware add-ons.
