I am sorry that didn't write in time. Now I've backed to the computer with log and can submit it here

Round 3 Grossbeeren
Toganalper (French) - 3 ( lost 43)
Gileforn (Prussian) - 10 (lost 22)

That was big tactic paly with very few luck for French side. Each one shooted by the first round with Grand Battery with small result. Than French army have started to go to the hills from the center. But there was no luck for them. Many throws were unlucky, so as a result Frensh army was througn away in the center and destroyed on their right flank.

Thank you for the game and sorry for the dices.

The French started with some shooting an all flanks and an initial push to their right flank. The fight got heated on the right bank around the church The French started to really push with all their force on the right flank. The Prussians were able to push back the attack and succeed to kill the leader too. The Prussians in the next turn got also the second leader. It all started to look very promising for the Prussians as the lead was 7:2. The fighting turned into the left flank. The French were able to give some damage but no final blows.,
French decided to focus again on the battle weakened right flank with some fresh guard forces. The Prussians manage to kill the 3. leader of the french.

Round 6 - Wavre

Greg Ottoman (Allies) 7 banners; 41 blocks lost
Togan Alper (French) 8 banners; 28 blocks lost


It was a long war of attrition. The Prussians were able to hold the french on the other side until really late in the game. The french finally attacked thru some gaps and finished the severely battered Prussians. The final kill of the french again came from a cav charge breaking the sq.

Round 2 - Auerstadt

French (RiverWanderer) - 10 banners, 34 blocks lost
Prussians (Giulio) - 7 banners, 41 blocks lost

The French opened up with an assault on Hassenhausen and soon gained control of the town, with Leadership (x2) driving the Prussians back and taking 3 Prussian units for little loss, despite counter-measures. In response the Prussians developed an attack between the central ridge and Speilberg. This was repulsed, but at the very unfortunate loss of two leaders (Friant and Gautier).

Now a Prussian Grande Manoeuvre shifted the focus even further to the French Right, which the French responded to with Counter Attack to re-balance the position. So began a desperate fight on this flank, with the French barely holding on in the face of a strong Prussian force and both sides having to retreat weakened units or lose them. Overall, the battle was even on this flank and with a high casualty rate.

The battle in the centre and on the French left continued to develop. Prussian Artillery was pushed back from the centre, as the French strengthened their control over Hassenhausen, aided by two Grand Battery actions. On the French left, the Prussians surged forward aiming to overwhelm the relatively light forward French forces in that section. However, the French units proved resilient and in this section the final banner fell to give victory to the French.

Thanks to Giulio for a good game!

We struggled with Vassal bugs during the first half of the game ... a corrupted hand state that results in one or more cards being duplicated between the two players' hands. One discards, both players lose that card from their hand. It settled down after several shutdown/re-synchs. I think I have managed to recover a coherent log file.

Round 4 - Ligny

French (Soul1st) - 11 banners, 28 blocks lost
Prussians (Mark-McG) - 8 banners, 47 blocks lost

The game started with the French driving the Prussians from St. Amand and the adjacent woods. After that most the action was mostly on the French left - Prussian right where both armies scored some hits. After that they were battle worn on that part of the field.
The Prussians then launched a series of cavalry charges in the center and on their left. The French answered with some cold steel and other counterattacks, eliminating two of the three Prussian cavalry units.
The Prussians tried to retake St. Amand but failed doing so, after which the last Prussian cavalry unit and their leader were eliminated, scoring the final hits for the French.

The Prussians had bad luck with their command cards during the battle but still managed to score 8 banners.

Thanks Mark for another great game. We both hope to see someday an epic scenario for Ligny in combination with Quatre Bras.

I see there is an EPIC Ligny and EPIC Quatre Bras in Expansion 7

I wonder about a double EPIC map (40x11)

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

Rnd1 - Jena

Cavie (French) 5 banners, 30 blocks lost
Viridovilas (Prussian) 8 banners, 25 blocks lost

The French started bombing the Prussian on their right and centre, but the latter immediately fell back behind the town hexes in order to take cover from the artillery heavy fire. Napoleon than decided to advance with all its army, but a strong counterfire (lucky rolls) welcomed the French, repelling their attacks one by one. The final battle was fought around the town of Closewitz: French took it for a little while, but Prussian infantries immediately counter-charged retaking the city and suppressing the surviving French infantries fleeing from Closewitz.

Round 4 - Ligny

Cavie (French) 6 banners, 42 blocks lost
Giulio (Prussian) 11 banners, 41 blocks lost

A long scenario played in two sessions, whence two log files. Quite early the French army sustains heavy losses in the left flank and is forced to retreat toward the center. The Prussians, however, don't dare too much with their militia. They are content to keep the buildings and fire from afar. The central part of the game is essentially a sniping exercice. When the Prussians finally move to attack in the center, the French reaction is strong but not so effective essentially due to bad dice rolls. They manage to capture St. Amand and rapidly advance their artillery, mauling the weakened Prussian units that run around like chickens with their heads cut off. But alas it's too late. More Frech units fall under the sniping fire of the few still organized Prussian units and the game is over.

Thanks to Dan for an entertaining game.

Round 6 - Wavre

Viridovilas (Max) (Allies) 3 blocks; 21 blocks lost
Soul1st (Twan) 8 banners; 26 blocks lost

The block loss count says it all, this one was won by getting 4 French units on or across the bridges of the Dyle river. The Prussians get extra banners in this scenario by playing scout cards. Unfortunately for Max he didn't get any.

The scenario rules have a major impact on the balance for this scenario I think.

There are in Europe many good generals, but they see too many things at once. I see one thing, namely the enemy's main body. I try to crush it, confident that secondary matters will then settle themselves. ~Napoleon
