KS Napoleon Battle Friday, Dec. 18th, 20:00BST, 15:00EST

Post  Uncle Billy on Fri Dec 18, 2015 3:55 pm



The town Setz is the communication and supply center for Reille's II Corps.  With uncharacteristic tactical skill the Prince of Orange has managed to maneuver his divisions into a superior position.  This masterstroke has no doubt rocked the French back on their heels.  Von Estorff's light cavalry has attempted to reconnoiter the enemy position around Setz but has failed, due to the heavy presence of enemy dragoons.  No matter, with such a large enemy cavalry force masking Setz, the French must be concentrated there.

Objective: Capture Setz and damage the French corps to the greatest extent possible.  Holding the town with at least 1,000 men for 15 minutes will simulate the destruction of the enemy's supplies.

Steve took command and led us to a fine victory. This one was a little unusual as the AI French commander split his cavalry off and attacked Pepe, (Chasse), who was approaching from the NE, while the bulk of the infantry went west to confront me, (Clinton). That gave Martin the luxury to pick and choose targets of opportunity.

I was faced by a paltry couple of brigades and after dispatching them enjoyed watching you sweat for a bit Wink

It was good to have some proper infantry under my command for a change. As luck would have it I had the 95th Rifles in one of my brigades and had a lot of fun with them.

A very pleasant affair. The KS mod for WL has reached maturity and provides an excellent napoleonic feeling.
