Photo Update at End of Turn Eight
The picture really says it all. Despite some early small triumphs, General von Drosselmaier rolled low again and again when it came to hitting his targets and determining the number of casulties.
The Zichenauer battery inflicted lethal damage on the Von Laurenz Musketeers throughout most of the game.
Stollen's 4th (Trakehnen) Dragoons did manage to disrupt a flank attack by O'Malley's Irish grenzers during Turn 6 and Turn 7.
In Turn 8, General von Drosselmaier finally committed his reserve -- the Leib (Grand Duchess Sonja's Own) Grenadiers. But it may be a case of too little, too late.
The same might be said of Stollen's Jaeger Corps, which messed around in this copse for most of the game without contributing much to the unfolding military action around them.
When last seen, the remaining Von Laurenz Musketeers were fleeing up the postal road toward the Stollenian capital Krankenstadt.
