manual..
The TGW VASSAL Module does count losses, and the think the new Ancients module has the option as well.
So when CCN gets an upgrade, it will probably happen.

Round 5 Plancenoit

RiverWanderer (French) 7 banners gained and 35 block lost

Viridovilas (Prussian) 9 banners gained and 33 block lost

The battle has been a real slaughter, with French and Prussian loosing and regaining positions in Plancenoit. Action takes places mostly on centre and on the right wing of the French. Prussian light infantries seem to turn the battle towards their side, when a double forced march brings into the front scene the French Old Guard. The Blucher army falters a bit, the general himself fleeing from the field. The tide seems this time to turn in favour of Simmer and Duhesme. But the Old guard units are too few to take full advantage of the situation. Finally, a Prussian cavalry charge against an artillery unit on the French left flank puts an end to the battle.

MT19 Round 1 Jena

EZPickins (French) 8 banners 28 blocks lost
Mark-MCG (Prussian) 5 banners, 33 blocks lost

The Prussians used Bayonet Charge to engage the center where most of the action took place. The French were able to answer with a charge of there own. Losses were fairly even until I was able to play three consecutive Cavalry Charges which Mark could not counter with two of his infantry locked in square. A quick fun game against a great opponent.

Round 3 - Grossbeeren

Cavie - 10 banners won, 40 blocks lost
Greg O - 8 banners won, 41 blocks lost

Game was on the verge of a win for the Prussians who had the majority camp banners and were 1 banner from a win. French somehow survived and were able to gain majority control to take the two banners away and hold them for the final turn. This was a 2 hour battle that had swings in both directions and really could have been won by either side.

Round 2 Auerstadt
EZPickins (French) 10 banners 28 blocks lost
Gileform (Prussian) 5 banners 38 blocks lost

French evicted the Gr from Hassenhausen on the first turn and held on to it most of the game. After fight went back and forth for many turns with the French having the edge on luck the score stood at 9-3. Prussians then played a Bayonet Charge and got partial control of the town while taking out the defenders. However it left them open to counterattacks which picked of some weaker units to win the game. Good game with luck slightly on the French side.

Round 4 Ligny
RiverWanderer (French) 11 banners 35 blocks lost
Gileforn (Prussian) 6 banners 49 blocks lost

The French opened with Elan; a Prussian retreat from La-Haye ensued but multiple ranged attacks into the woods by St. Amand had no effect at all. This allowed a full riposte from the Prussian Light holed up in the woods; claiming the first banner as a French light infantry unit was demolished. French cavalry charged into action to gain advantage on the flanks, with the Prussian artillery as their first target. La-Haye and the area around Ligny became the focal points of the battle.

Prussian cavalry and infantry recovered their position around Ligny but had lost their artillery and the situation resolved to strong defensive lines on both sides. Meanwhile, at La-Haye, a nippy French Light unit took advantage of Loop-hole Buildings to hit Tippelskirch's Line before they could pose a threat. Each side made attack and counter-attack around the La-Haye and the church at Ligny, each edging towards victory but, with tired front-line units mounting on both sides, both sides needed to take care. The Prussians fell back from the church, whilst the French strengthened their position near La-Haye, with mixture of good shooting, judicious retreat and a fortunate rally. The situation was even at 8 banners each.

French Leadership and a failed Prussian Bombard, left the score at 9 French banners to 8 Prussian. Now the French took their chance to win the day; with a Force March around La-Haye, Wagnelee was occupied and the reformed French Line under Gerard attacked weakened Prussian artillery on the hill as Young Guard stormed a weak Prussian Line unit that had recently fallen back to the safety of the windmill. The windmill fell to the French, costing the Prussians a unit and their 2-banner town majority. Yet, with the French 1 banner from victory, the Prussians had one last trick at the ready - Artillery Canister. First strikes had been notably absent from this contest, so it was little surprise to see one at last. Gerard may have wondered if a ranged attack might have been a better choice but luckily for his troops, lady luck was on his side. The French battle-back gained the one hit needed, bringing an exciting game to conclusion.

One final note - just for once, not a single leader fell, despite numerous leader checks throughout!

Thanks for Andrey (Gileforn) for the game and good luck in the rest of the tournament.

This battle started slow, with both sides consolidating positions until the Prussians bayonet charged the Leading FR light, eliminating it, but they were repulsed by a French counter thrust in the center, The battle shifted to the flanks with a sharp engagement on the left and then a big move on the right, although the Prussians there were consolidated mainly behind the line of forests. The game ended with a charge by a Prussian Light Cav into a lone leader then later two 1 block FR light cavs.
