Hi again GG. Both times I have played this scenario the French have been looking like winners, but had to push hard to get more banners before the Prussians arrive. First time the Prussians did not arrive until turn 13, but it was enough for the Allies to win 15-14. Second time Prussians arrived turn 10 and the Allies won 15-11, although the British had some very strong dice rolls in the center that crushed a French charge (French had 3 Bayonet Charges in the space of 5 turns).
These results seem historically accurate and both games could have gone either way.

Hi GG, We've been playing the return of our April Games Festival, Guillaume "Borodino's Butcher" Ambroise as the Allied against I.
Despite the powerful arrival of Blücher and his Prussians, the French retreated on their right side (having occuped Papelotte only one turn with a weakened Young Guard unit and having Jaquinot killed by devastating Fire & Hold) with order and resisted to let the central part of their Army occupy La Haye Sainte and "clean" the battlefield specially with the Heavy Guard Cavalry very lucky when in charge.
On the left flank, Hougoumont was occupied a few turns by a Light Infantry unit which was destroyed by the Guard Grenadiers who made a great job.
French Old Guard and Napoleon have waited all the game for the final decision but it wasn't necessary...
To end my words, I would say that it is very important to join Art units to make Grand Battery to increase Artillery Firepower (especially when you pick up 2 Bombard cards !!!)
The score was 15/11 for the French side.
Vive l'Empereur !

There are certain things in war of which the commander alone comprehends the importance. Nothing but his superior firmness and ability can subdue and surmount all difficulties.~Napoleon
