I think, this is probably the most unbalanced scenario, I have played so far. Russian having good luck on rolls and great cards, gives French no chance to win. Could have been 7-5, but Russian even got a Rally :-)
Final score, pretty devastating 7-3, which could easily be 9-3.

The scenario was played in MT6, with 3 Russian and 2 French wins.
On the whole, it was one of the better balanced Expansion 2 scenarios, which does not really say much. Seems to be moving towards more pro-Russian here.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

Just won again with the French (3rd time in last 3 game, can´t believe it).

After a excellent start of the Russian, with 2 Cavalry Charges and some other good cards and dice, which destroyed my 2 ART in first turns, weaked other units and forced 2 into square, an incredible coming back was following.

With a Bayonett Charge in my hand, i prepared my center INF (with the OG), to charge the center hills. The Russians moved 2 turns ago, 2 of their center ART
to the russian right flank, so i saw a Little last chance :)

Attacking then with the Bayonett Charge, the OG fight indeed as an Old Guard and killed one russian GR in 1 roll. The second GR was increased to 1 block.
The russian couldn´t counter this charge effective, so i occupied in my next turn 3 center hills, which gave me the last VP to win.

Vive le Emperor :)

7-2 for the French against an inexperienced and unlucky opponent.

7-6 French victory. With the remaining 2 blocks of a French infantry unit in square on their hill with Russian Cuirassier and Light cav swirling around them, another French infantry unit stormed the hill and destroyed a Russian infantry unit for the win.

Strange match. The French won 7-3 thank to a great combination of cards: force march in their left, plus Grande manoeuvre plus two infantry combats first and one artillery canister. The French just advanced all troops in that side close to the Russians. The Russians had a bayonet charge even, but the French tactician cards destroyed the Russian lines and the artillery canister made the rest. The French had almost free way to occupy the hills winning the battle.
If the French had a different hand I don't see how they could win.
It was fun, though.

Easy French win 7-2, Benningsen was very unfortunate. After ordering a bayonet charge which destroyed Legrand on the hill the Russian infantry had bungled into a French Fire and Hold order... boom, 4 banners.

One win each for French and Russians. Both games 7-6 so a balanced scenario . In the first game the Russians were very powerful in the centre with massed batteries, the French required a grand manoeuvre to send everything to the right, including the Old Guard who were brought forward on a tactical card from the baseline. The resulting right flank attack did enough to secure the victory. On the second game the Russian cavalry removed the French cavalry threat and thereafter kept a few units in square, reduced the French cards and slowed them down.With virtually no action on the right flank (French left flank) Russian grenadiers attacking though the centre finally sealed it.
