Hi again GG. Both times I have played this scenario the French have been looking like winners, but had to push hard to get more banners before the Prussians arrive. First time the Prussians did not arrive until turn 13, but it was enough for the Allies to win 15-14. Second time Prussians arrived turn 10 and the Allies won 15-11, although the British had some very strong dice rolls in the center that crushed a French charge (French had 3 Bayonet Charges in the space of 5 turns).
These results seem historically accurate and both games could have gone either way.

Hi GG, We've been playing the return of our April Games Festival, Guillaume "Borodino's Butcher" Ambroise as the Allied against I.
Despite the powerful arrival of Blücher and his Prussians, the French retreated on their right side (having occuped Papelotte only one turn with a weakened Young Guard unit and having Jaquinot killed by devastating Fire & Hold) with order and resisted to let the central part of their Army occupy La Haye Sainte and "clean" the battlefield specially with the Heavy Guard Cavalry very lucky when in charge.
On the left flank, Hougoumont was occupied a few turns by a Light Infantry unit which was destroyed by the Guard Grenadiers who made a great job.
French Old Guard and Napoleon have waited all the game for the final decision but it wasn't necessary...
To end my words, I would say that it is very important to join Art units to make Grand Battery to increase Artillery Firepower (especially when you pick up 2 Bombard cards !!!)
The score was 15/11 for the French side.
Vive l'Empereur !

15 British banners vs 8 French Banners (1 for the temporary banner from Papelotte. My first impression is that the Prussians arrive too early. In any case it is a great map, thanks for your work!

Looking forward to play this scenario which looks amazing!! Just one thing I don’t understand..should the first wave of Prussians be coming at 7 or at 9?

Ok thank you! I asked because in one of the comments from the scenario’s designer was actually written that all Prussians should have come in after 9 rounds..probably it was just an older version which has been adapted after some play testing..

Hello R4mello, TY for playing my scenario!
Yes those were old comments. You know we need sometime many testing sessions before being sure of any balance.
So the scenario is now the most balanced I could do, even if we all think it's unbalanced when we loose on any side (including me) lol!
Enjoy! GG - City of Tours - France
