Game 1
Gonzo (Austrian) 5 banners, Sansmerci (French) 3 banners--Most of action on French right. Critical was an early Austrian bombard which got their artillery into position and two of them in a grand battery. Dueling cavalry attacks accomplished little, but French lt lost while Austrian 1 pt LC got away. Austrian kept pushing on that flank with help of great rally rolls. It took Steve 7 hits to kill the Austrian CU. Close game, but Bavarians able to finish French on that side for win.

Game 2
Gonzo (Austrian) 5 banners, Sansmerci (French) 2 banners. Again most of action of French right. French loaded up on right, using Bayonet Charge, two Forced marches, mult command and flank cards with inf forward leaders to overwhelm that flank. An Austrian assault on that flank with Cav killed 2 French, but with no inf left, they were stymied by squares. Austrian forays incl HC attacks on opposite flank killed some blocks, but unable to kill art, then everyone ran into terrain. A French Rally again was critical and a Cav charge by French HC killed a full Austrian FA for the final medal.

Thanks to Sansmerci for the match. Luck varied wildly at times, but Gonzo go the cards and dice he needed in the end.

Started play of our semi last weekend, but have some things going on that distracted from play so had to adjourn temporarily and couldnt get back to it. I dont see a free weekend for the next month or more (we will be getting my mother resettled into a new apartment AND fall volleyball season has started up) to get online and play.Ggiven the time zone difference, will be even more difficult, preventing any hope of weekday play. So as to not hold things up, someone can take my place or I will be happy to forfeit.

yes in the second game Gonzo played the French. Both games timely cards won the games for Gonzo in the first two tactics cards broke up a cav charge and the a great roll on a reform and a rally card made a big difference. In the second game two force marches and a bayonet charge with another rally killed the Allied left. Log files for both games are added the first is only the last half of the game. In the first we had a discussion about block counts he had recovered 7 blocks from rallies and reforms the question was should that 7 be added that French final count making it 22-22 not 22-15. In the big picture Gonzo played very well and won both games. Thanks again for another fun tourney.

Brad, I don't necessarily see any urgency to get this played. Taken 3 weeks to have the other Semi-Final played.
I'm happy to let it run, and I'm trying to get the Open Tournament filled and up, so there is source of organised games in the wings.

Final game 1: BH05 - Lützen

Allies (Bayernkini) - French (Gonzo)
8 : 4

Starting game and first turns with regrouping and range fire, which suffers not much.
Then a Prussian HC supported with a FA attacked the GLC, which weaked the GLC to 1block and killed the prussian (Charge if charged).
On this attack the french counters with a CavCharge, which could decide game here already.
But the french failed and allies counter with CavCharge and the allies goes in front with 2:1.

Now follows again a few turns with regrouping and range fire. Then the Allies played a Leadership and could weak the french FA on the french right flank to 1block, also the attacking russian HC was down to 1block.
The french counter couldnt destroy the single HC and the FA was destroyed in the battleback, Allies leads 3:1.

Then the french prepared all his Yound and Old Guards for a center attack, which follows with a ForceMarch, which killed a prussian HC.
Score 3:2.

Allies answered with range fire and killed one YG, score 4:2.

Then a french BayonettCharge was following, so he could roll 6/7 dice with his guards. The first attack of a YG on the 2block left prussian FA failed (only one hit), and battleback killed the YG.
a French LT attack on a Prussian LN in the ford failed again.
Then the OG killed the prussian 2block LC and with inspired Leadership the OG killed the single block prussian FA too.
The other french YG failed with 6 dice against a prussian LT (only 2 hits),
Score here now Allies 5 : 4 French.

The prussian played ColdSteel and wiped out the french OG and the prussian LT, leaving back the weak 2block YG in front of the Allies,
Score 7:4 now.

The french saved his left flank with a reatreat now, and tried to attack the russians on the right flank, but also this attacks was to weak and the counter attacks in following 2 turns killed the last needed french unit for victory.

I hope, i can beat Joe´s 4 banners in rematch ;)

Final game 2: BH05 - Lützen

Allies (Gonzo) - French (Bayernkini)
1 : 8

The main problem was surly the bad day/dice of Joe today.

French advanced early on center-right and right flank, couldnt retreat and hold the position for the final attacks.
Here the Guards was really helpfull.

My vassal file is broken, so the last turns missing here.
