The battle took place at our club : Les Prétoriens - Le Mans.

The sides were :

Russian :
- Guillaume aka Leboucher (Butcher) Ambroise : Commander in Chief Center
- Yan "Bloodbowl" Pasbecq : Left flank
- Fred "Legends Teller" Geffard : Right flank

French :
- François "Hawkmoon" Gonçalves : Commander in Chief Center
- Benoît "Ty" Le Manac'h : Right flank
- Nicolas "Okko" Dufour : Left flank

At the beginning, the action takes place on the french left. Fred launched a cavalry charge which after a few turns destroyed the entire french light cavalry and killed Grouchy (Waterloo will be won by french side !!!). The french reaction will have to wait until an attack from the fearless (and very lucky) infantry and the unique heavy cavalry led by Nicolas which made great work.

In the center, Guillaume tried to make the same sending the Heavy Guard Cavalry which completely failed its charge against the french grand battery and was destroyed in two rounds... The french infantry suffered heavy losses at the beginning due to the squares attacked by russian infantry.

In the french right, the action was almost fire exchanges between Yan and Benoît before the heroic bayonet charge which led to victory.

3 russian generals were killed in action (2 french left and one in center) and one for the french side. Friedland remained russian.

An interesting battle with 4 almost rookies (with an experience of Richard's games like M44, Ancients, Battlelore and Samurai Battles). The russian side led the game until Heavy Guard Cavalry has been destroyed that made a complete change of the physionomy of the game.

Thanks for the game to my comrades !
