The thin white line, Erics' Austrians await the possible onslaught. The boards are used to mark units which haven't yet been spotted by the enemy.
On the Allied left the Prussian artillery has seen off its opposite numbers on the French side leaving the French right bereft of guns. This should hopefully (I say hopefully because it's my command) allow the Prussians to get forward once they've concentrated on softening up the opposing infantry for a few turns. There was an inclonclusive melee in the area around the village which forms the main strong point of the French line. Three battalions of French and four of Prussians fought each other to a stalemate and both were forced to pull back to reorganise.
Much of what is left of the French cavalry facing the Prussians, a squadron of lancers line up a tempting target. Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough.
Wednesday night was unique in 2011 as it was the first time that all eight of us were present at once. As well as catching up with all the normal nonsense, we were able to set a date for our first visit to the new Wargames Holiday Centre. We decided on the weekend 15-17 July and will be fighting the battle of Marengo so that'll be something to look forward to.
Austrian staff officers, hussars and grenadiers. The figures are by Elite miniatures I think
I can't imagine us finishing the battle next week but we should have a better idea of which way it's going to go so watch this space for further updates.
