The Battle of Waterloo-Plancenoit 1815 ...

Napoleonic Game (October 2014)

Battle of Kalish February 1813

We used BP rules with scaled down measurements.

The Franco-Saxon-Polish Corps was enhanced by some additional cavalry (but outnumbered by two to one instead of four to one).
The Franco-Saxon-Polish cavalry did very well in the end despite some unlikely early set backs of the Saxon Elite Kuirassiers against Cossacks (what the!!).
Most of the Russian Right cavalry was gone and all the Left Flank was gone, but on the left of the Allied force still had to contend with about 20 Russian Battalions.
It was a good day.
