Ligny 1815 refought at Gauntlet

Posted by Fire at Will on 08 Jul 2015, 10:27

After a months planning I put on a refight of Ligny at my local clubs show "Gauntlet"

I concentrated on the action involving the Prussian I and II Corps and scaled down the action so Divisions were represented by brigades so about a third of the units involved, but still 60 per side.

The rules were Black Powder with some local variations, in particular a change to the sequence of play. Then for this game I added a role for senior commanders who had to issue orders to their subordinate commanders, which had to be followed until changed.

Quite a few pictures and commentary over on my blog, but not as many as I would have liked as umpires don't always get the chance to take pictures
