This is the second encounter with these forces. In the first battle Austrians dismounted their dragoon brigade in the center after trying to charge French 4 rank battalions and getting massacred for their troubles. After dismounting the fresh regiment did lot of damage to start with but skirmishing troops do not stand up to formed troops even with 20 figs :) The Danish cut a swathe through the french brigade to its front before realizing it had overextended and was being swamped from the flanks. Meanwhile the French dragoons attempted a flank attack on the end Austrian brigade which repulsed them just in time. The battle ended in a draw :) I wonder what will happen tonight :)

Well this was by far the best play test game I have had so far. The game flowed very well, was over inside 2 hours and we played 7 turns.

In the end the Austrians trumped the French, having crushed their dismounted dragoon flank holding the tall rye fields and town and woods and the French and Franco-HRE (Cologne) brigades to the right of the town. On the other flank the Chevauleger brigade got the better of the Carabinier brigade, 4 regiments to 2 regiments, but then the French quickly slowed to a halt as the Carabinier were weakened but not cowed. The Irish Brigade, after some good fortune earlier against the Danish Battalions, proceeded to tear the Austro-Danish Brigade apart with the wild geese leading the way. While an Austrian brigade next to them was torn apart from the concentrated canister fire of 3 independent light batteries and a French brigade.

At the end of turn 7 the French had lost three brigades out of 6 and the Austrians had lost 2 brigades out of 5. The French rolled a 5 and the army withdrew from the battle field while Austrians passed their army morale test. It ended being a 7-4 win, Austrian favor.
