This battle was based on a battle on the southern/right flank of the French forces in Russian 1812.
Involved were the Austrian and Saxon Corps vs the Russian 3rd West Army.
Geoff supplied all the Russians (he has a lot of Russians), Robert the Austrians (these Austrians are part of his 1812 project), Don, Paul and Bryan supplied Prussians to act as Saxons.
We used WRG rules as amended by the Northern Sydney Wargames Club.
There were a couple of new guys to the club involved (Dennis and John E) plus our Chilean member (Don's son John).
I (Thoran) was playing on the Russian side then the Austrian side (one member had to leave suddenly), I was so confused.
