Napoleonic HITS Game Apr. 11-12

Post  Uncle Billy on Wed Apr 08, 2015 4:09 pm

We didn't have enough players sign up for this scenario last week.  Let's try again this weekend.



The French were beset with a piece of bad luck.  Movement orders for II corps had been intercepted. The Austrian high command sent out a large force to take advantage of this opportunity and destroy the enemy.  However, due to the all too usual slow movement of the Austrians, the French may be able to slip free.  To succeed, each army will need to out guess and out maneuver his opponent.

This 3 hour battle will be fought on the Pipe Creek 3 map.  The usual 3 mods will be required along with the Pipe Creek expansion pack sold by Matrix, (everyone who has played for the last month already has it).

The battle will require a minimum of 8 players.  We can, of course, accommodate many more with brigade assignments.

The usual rule of no scouting more than 200-250 yd in front of your troops is in effect.

Cavalry and artillery may only use the roads when moving across the central ridge or along it.  They may not move cross country.  There are only two roads which allow such movement across, marked in red.  Roads near the top of the ridge that allow travel NE_SW, also marked in red.  These restrictions only apply to the central ridge.

Correct. Mark, the French CinC can only make Sunday, so we'll play the scenario tomorrow at 19:30BST. I'll throw something together for today on the Brandy Station map. Everyone will need that expansion pack. The game will start at the usual time 20:00BST, (15:00EDT, 14:00CDT, 13:00MDT, 12:00PDT).

Our Brandy Station fights tend to always take place in one of two areas (south or west), is it possible to arrange some action elsewhere on the map please? I know the river closes off one big chunk but perhaps something based on forcing a river crossing?

I did not get the Brandy Station map this month.  Had to get my Grandson a new medicine.  Along with banking restrictions I can't move money from a to b quick enough.  Enjoy the game!

Paypal is convenient but when you have a PayPal foreign account it will not let you transfer money from the US to it. Curse you Patriot Act!!!

Should have tried this before today! Mad

I am still using the Egyptian calendar from the 3rd Dynasty - could you please translate the time table into this format as well, Kevin? - I always get confused with the ones you mention....

it's 6:17 PM here right now - so... I take it we are about to start the battle? afro

or to put it in the proper 3rd Dynasty way: the 6th cycle of the dog has just crossed over the Nile and has met with the 2nd cycle of the holy cat.

The battle will be for the town of Paysdorf. Prussians vs French.

Austria is on Central Euro time? If so you are BST+1.

thanks - but it was just a poor attempt (obviously now, since you were all so very serious about it Twisted Evil ) at making Kevin add another 5 or 6 time zones Razz

I am on Mayan Equinox Sacrifice Time. As I need to ritualistically slaughter a healthy youth before we march to fight I need to know the moon phase, where Altair is in relation to Vega and the texture of the chicken's entrails before I can say whether I'll be attending or not. If I get this wrong we all know the world will end in 2014.

"Walk On The Wild Side"

Holly came from Miami, F.L.A.
Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She says, "Hey, babe,
Take a walk on the wild side."
Said, "Hey, honey,
Take a walk on the wild side."

Candy came from out on the Island
In the back room she was everybody's darling
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She says, "Hey, babe,
Take a walk on the wild side."
Said, "Hey, babe,
Take a walk on the wild side."
And the colored girls go
"Doo do doo do doo do do doo..."

Little Joe never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
New York City's the place
Where they said, "Hey, babe,
Take a walk on the wild side."
I said, "Hey, Joe,
Take a walk on the wild side."

Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
Looking for soul food and a place to eat
Went to the Apollo
You should've seen them go, go, go
They said, "Hey, sugar,
Take a walk on the wild side."
I said, "Hey, babe,
Take a walk on the wild side."
All right, huh

Jackie is just speeding away
Thought she was James Dean for a day
Then I guess she had to crash
Valium would have helped that bash
Said, "Hey, babe,
Take a walk on the wild side."
I said, "Hey, honey,
Take a walk on the wild side."
And the colored girls say,
"Doo do doo do doo do do doo..."
