|The view from behind Prussian line of the initial set up.|
|Supply line represented by quickly made wagons, limbers, and other sundry items on 3" long stands.|
|Note the undefended red roofed BUA at bottom? Holding that was one of my victory conditions....|
|Stout Prussian defenders of Brienne le Chateau, force a French brigade back.|
|But more are coming like an endless blue tide....|
|Starting to feel a little outnumbered...|
|Finally the French occupy the town....|
|A French division on woods edge.|
|The French advance.|
|And meet solid resistance from good Prussian steel!|
|We kept track of casualties. It was a close run thing....|
|But a well earned victory for the French!|
As a result of seeing some of the notations in the scenario, I decided on getting the second edition of Volley and Bayonet, and the 100 Days expansion "Napoleon Returns". They both arrived last week, and I am starting to gear up all three armies required to play - although based on the games I have been playing lately perhaps painting some 1814 Russians might be in order first?
Still, it is an achievable goal, and working towards it will mean that I will at least finally make some villages!
