Move Six Begins. . .
Here's a view of the general situtation across most of the battlefield at the start of Move Six. You can see that von Grundig has moved his infantry up into position and deployed them into line. Unfortunately, it might be a case of too little, too late. Out of sight here (to the left) is another squadron of the 4th Dragoons, who bring up the rear of the colonel's small force.
On the southwestern edge of the field, another company of O'Malley's Irish Grenzers has appeared and makes its way to Pickelhaubewicz, to join the first company of the battalion already there.
Two moves ahead of those same grenzers, we see The Newts, making their way slowly toward the village to cement von Hirschbiegel's possession of it.
Meanwhile, the first company of grenzers has cleared Pickelhaubewicz of Stollenian troops, forcing them back toward the waiting Grenadiere zu Pferd beyond.
And as they attempt flight from Pickelhaubewicz, the 4th Dragoons are taken in flank by those same Grenadiere zu Pferd, meaning a third cavalry melee is in store at the end of
