|By now the cavalry action on both flanks was coming fast and furious. Here|
my Brandenburg Uhlans are put to flight by DK cuirassiers and dragoons.
Surely Hinton Hunt should trump DK every time?
|Even with this success Tony was taking no chances and formed three of his|
battalions into square. This made his flank safe from cavalry attack but also
prevented him from advancing and taking the rock objective.
|Back at the farm the Swedish Abo regiment managed to eject the 45th ligne|
from the buildings. I knocked up a simplified rule for combat in built-up-areas
for this game to make it more likely that the objective would change hands.
|More cavalry mayhem - this time British heavy dragoons manage to see off|
the Austrian Hussars. Behind them a melee between Light dragoons and the
lancer/chasseurs rumbles on. The 'black spot' denotes a fallen colonel.
|The farm is now surrounded by a sea of troops. The Young Guard are in the|

|The lancer/chasseurs have finally broken the Light Dragoons. However the|
British still have plenty of cavalry left on this flank and the Blues&Greys are

|The Swedish Kajana regiment has retreated and now the Young Guard plough|
on into the ranks of the Russian grenadiers. This is a tense moment
