13 July 2013 -- AAR

Scenario = A British infantry brigade holds a village at a river crossing and farm there mission is to hold until relived by British and Brunswick forces. A French infantry division with a cavalry brigade and additional units.

OOB - French:
1st Infantry Brigade = four line battalions
2nd Infantry Brigade = three line battalions
Cavalry Brigade = Cuirassier regiment and Carabinier regiment
Two foot artillery batteries = 6lb Battery + howitzer, 8lb battery
Chasseurs a Cheval regiment

OOB - Allies:
1st British Infantry = four line battalions
2nd British Infantry = two line battalions and a Highland battalion
British foot artillery = 9lb
Brunswick Infantry = four line battalions and a avantgarde battalion
Brunswick horse artillery = 6lb

The British and French deploy.

The French infantry move to attack, the artillery pound the structures trying to reduce them.

The brigade on the left failed to motivate to charge, so one of the battalions from the right brigade motivates to charge. One consonance was the Chasseurs a Cheval regiment charged unsupported and paid a high price and was force to retire Also we are lucky the Allied reserves have failed to arrive to attempt relief.

The left brigade slowly presses on the attack and the right brigade charges home, at the end the allied reserves arrive.

The Brunswick horse artillery moves aggressively and fires into the brigade assaulting the village and disrupts two battalions, the cavalry being in position protect one bridge crossing moves into action and the Cuirassier regiment forces the horse artillery to react, the cavalry have the initiative but fail motivate to charge and the horse artillery blast Cuirassier regiment forcing them to retreat.

The allied forces move and deploy along the river, but with the two French brigade capturing the village and the French artillery redeployed covering the bridges and the French cavalry in postilion to stop any crossing it was a French Victory.
