1813 Napoleonic Age of Eagles 15mm Battle (October 2013)
Paul B, Mark and myself (Thoran) have been building 15mm armies using Old Glory, Minifigs and AB miniatures.
Mark has painted a large French army together with a few Prussian and Russian brigades and batteries.
Paul has painted a goodly number of Prussians and I have have a few Russian infantry and cavalry brigades and a number of batteries.
A battlefield was set up and we deployed our forces and had at it, with Michael and Mark as the French and Thoran and Paul as Russo-Prussian.
|Russian horse and foot batteries with Cuirassier and Dragoon brigades in support|
|French heavy cavalry advancing|
|The French cavalry on this part of the field spent most of it's time in column and unable to charge|
|Russian Cuirassiers to the front. The infantry had trouble getting out of column and into Masse. The leading brigade has so far the other two did not for a few moves|
|This Russian brigade remain in column and did not move for a few moves as the French Old Guard advanced|
|French Cuirassiers and Old Guard infantry taking out Russian Horse artillery|
|Russian hussars has failed in their charge onto French Old Guard infantry but the French Cuirassiers just did not want to charge|
|Russian Cuirassiers ready to charge the French infantry|
|Prussian Lancers taking on French Lancers on the Allied Left Flank|
|French brigades in the Centre|
|Russian Cuirassiers have charged the French Line Brigade|
|The French Old Guard have broken into the wheatfield defended by the Russian artillery and two brigades of musketeers. The French Cuirassiers were pushed back out by the Russian infantry|
|The second Russian Cuirassier brigade with infantry support is pushing the French back|
|French Cuirassiers pushing back Russian Grenadiers|
|The French in the Centre continue to advance, what is their no one to stop them|
|The far Left Flank of the Allied line, the Prussians were getting the better of the French cavalry|
|The Russian infantry on the Allied far Right Flank were being push back by the French Old Guard|
|Russian Cuirassiers had to retire from the French Line infantry|
|Prussian infantry in the Centre, at last trying to stop the French|
|Really bad picture of the Allied Left|
One Russian Dragoon brigade did give the French infantry and artillery on the French Left Centre a lot of trouble but it was not enough, the French had the overall upper hand.
this calls for a re-match in the new year.
