Played this a couple of days ago. I had the Austrians. It was a rout, with the French winning 12-2. The French had a Cavalry Charge card in their original hand, so moved cavalry up on their right flank to be ready to charge. The Austrians moved on the center preparing to Bayonet Charge when ready. The French played their Cavalry Charge card and eliminated an Austrian CU. Other Austrian cavalry moved up to help. French played a second Cavalry Charge and wiped out the Austrian LC and Lancers. Next run the French played a third Cavalry Charge, eliminating one Foot Artillery and knocking the other one back to the baseline. After another turn the Austrians couldn't put any more Battalion Mass counters down and the French cavalry finished the game.

Austrian Bayonet Charge in the centre? Remember Austrian Line only charge 1 hex. Also, there is no limit to the Austrian Battalion Mass. It is not like squares.
3 sequential Cavalry charges is pretty unusual too! That is itself would make the match an exceptional result.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

The 1 hex movement of the Austrians is what didn't allow them to get into range soon enough. I was trying to get 4 Austrian LN in position, but French cavalry wave made it impossible, as I was scrambling trying to save my left flank. Yeah, the 3 Cavalry Charge cards in quick succession was very unusual.
Battalion mass is limited to the total command cards the Austrians start the battle with, which means I had 5 units in square.

Nei primi turni i Francesi giocano la carta "Force March" e conquistano Aspern. Gli Austriaci contrattaccano ferocemenete sulla loro destra e nel centro e dopo una carta "Bayonet Attack" riescono a conquistare uno degli hex di Aspern. Il costo in perdite per gli Austriaci e' troppo alto. La battaglia finisce 12 a 8 per i Francesi che alla fine sono ancora in possesso di Aspern.
