Today we played small, fast game in Black Powder with Marian from Maniexite – direct link to his Austrians is here. He played 6th army corps of Hiller,
2nd division of Kottulinski:
– Hoffmeister’s brigade, 31st pulk of Bieniowskis Hungarian infantry.
– Wallmoden’s brigade, 7th pulk of Liechtensteins hussars, 8th pulk of Kienmayers hussars, half battery of 6th pounders guns.
Reserve corps of Liechtenstein:
– 2nd division of Prochaszkas grenadiers, brigade Steyrer composed of Legrad grenadiers from 9, 55 i 56 infantry pulks.
4th army corps of Rozenberg:
– 4th column of Bartenstein, Newstädters brigade, 9th pulk of Czartoryskis German infantry (Galizien).
Awangards of Klenau:
– 1st Jagers batallion.

My Russians were composed of three batallions of infantry from modern day eastern Poland and Bialorussia (former territories of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth), Polish Uhlans in Tzar service and battery of cannons.

We played in centre of Wrocław –, thank you for table and terrains.

it was great, fast game of forces composed of one brigade per side – this game is great in big battles as well as in smaller ones.
– as Marian said many times – forces many times weren’t equal – we weren’t sure if this time they were – it’s observation after the battle. But everyone can imagine 300 of Spartans against much more Persians, Wohlynian cavalry brigade fighting against German panzers during 1939′, defense of Paris against Vikings, battle of Vienna 1683 were besieged capital of Austria held until release force of Poland, German states and Austria itself released city from the siege, Rohan warriors defending Helms Deep, Gotrek and Felix fighting to the last goblin – forces weren’t equal many times. Our history or fantasy – doesn’t matter. Battles weren’t equal. Thank you Marian for those words.
– I will try in the future write something more about this system – at least about orders, as this is that kind of game – when you give order to batallion or brigade you need to tell – march to the crossroads with a chapel, reform into battle column and march to bridge – if you fail, unit can read map and say – that village is not exist, are we on the appropriate road?
– our community is located in Wrocław and we are open for international contacts as well as contacts inside our country – here is our page: Wrocławscy Bonapartyści.
– let’s have nice weekend friends!
