Command and Colors Napoleonics - HMGS Recon - Orlando, FL - April 25, 2014 - Tournament #5

I am posting the results of tournament play for this scenario.
We had 14 players for the best turnout yet.

French had 10 wins
Russians had 8 wins

This seems to be a pretty balanced scenario. I think the consensus was that some starting cards with ForceMarch/BayonetCharge for the Russian Grenadiers in the center greatly improved the Russian chances.



​#1 Richard Lightle wins the closest contest in Tournament history. Pat Kurivial and Richard both had 3 wins and lost 13 blocks. Richard took #1 by beating opponents having a slightly better record than Pats opponents.



​#1 Paul with 3 wins. Yes, the Russians had a fighting chance in this scenario.

Played this one yesterday. I had the French and won 10-6 and it wasn't really that close. Russians had bad dice. At one point, over the course of several turns, the Russians rolled a total of 30 dice in ranged fire against a French LT. They only scored 2 infantry hits, and no more than one flag on any roll, so the French unit held there for the entire game!

10-4 for the Russians. Very well played and good cards. An initial la Grande manoeuvre by the Russian brought the cavalry and the grenadiers to the front. After 4 squares (one with a hasty square card) the French were on the defensive the whole battle.
