French 10 banners - Russians 4 banners
Played as the French with tactician cards against TheMP. The battle started on the French right, going back and forth with the French holding a slight lead and able to get the YG into Ailles. I started with 2 Cavalry charges in hand plus 2 break the squares tactician cards so for the next several turns, I tried when I could to get the cavalry in place for a charge. When the opportunity arose, A cavalry charge combined with the 2 break square cards were able to increase the banner count for the french to a point where 1 banner was needed which was won on the next turn by forcing a FA unit to retreat into elimination.

I think I had an extraordinary hand of tact and command cards which ultimately gave me the upper hand. We will play this one again without the tact cards to see what results can occur in a "classic" battle. I think this is a tough one for the Russians but we will see.

Both victories to the French, 10-3 and 10-7. French weight of heavy cavalry and very tough Infantry are too much for the Russians in this scenario.

The French Heavies rule the day. French win easily 10(12 actually) to 2. Mortier only moved to have a better view.

If you wage war, do it energetically and with severity. This is the only way to make it shorter and consequently less inhuman.~Napoleon
