|The 4th Swiss put up a good fight but against two enemy units and being disordered this was only going to end one way.|
|Just to the right of the Swiss the 9th legere take on another Bavarian column at slightly better odds. There are more Bavarian columns coming up in support however.|
|In the centre the two sides have settled down to a fire fight and as you can see my French are starting to take casualties. The guard look on but remain uncommitted by the emperor.|
|The Swiss keep running pursued by one of the Bavarian columns. This shot shows my labelling system on the bottom of the bases to keep track of the various figure types.|
|The reliable 45th ligne get stuck in to yet another Bavarian column. The 45th were to win this melee and were the only French unit remaining on this flank at the end of the game although by then they were completely surrounded by enemy infantry.|
|The situation at the end of turn 5.|
|Another shot of the 9th legere. The 45th ligne can be seen in the background (top left).|
|Next to the grenadiers the 105th ligne are also taking more casualties including their colonel (who on this occasion is Lasalle). My men are giving as good as they get but behind the enemy front line are three more battalions as yet untouched.|
|Poniatowski is swept away with the rout of the 8th Polish battalion. Fortunately for him there is no river blocking his line of retreat.|
|The 9th legere are also routing and my left flank has completely broken.|
|The view from the Bavarian battery at the end of the game. One gun has been removed as a result of counter-battery fire from my guard artillery.|
|This is the view from behind the Austrian front line (looking at my combined grenadier battalion).|
|It's all over now as Roy's cavalry sweep forward to complete his victory.|
With both my flanks broken it was time to concede defeat. It was a great game and another good test of the rules. This time I felt there was nothing to change in the rules other than the introduction of the initiative die roll. It's taken a while (I started in 1972) but finally I have a set of rules that I'm really happy with.
My thanks to Roy for yet another splendid game and lunch.
