Von Hirschbiegel's 11th Hussars Occupy Pickelhaubewicz!

Bad luck! Major von Hirschbiegel is thrown from his horse and cannot issue any orders for one turn.


Nevertheless, his 11th Hussars reach and occupy Pickelhaubewicz first, but they are set upon immediately by von Grundig's 4th Dragoons.


Meanwhile, a company of Stollen's Von Laurenz Musketeers reach the field in fine order.


And on the Zichenauer side of the field? A company of O'Malley's Irish Grenzers and a squadron of The Die Grenadiere zu Pferd arrive, but they must wait for orders from Major von Hirschbiegel before doing anything constructive.

Stokes what make of figures are the Stollian Dragoons? They make a fine sight upon the table.

Hi Alan,

The dragoons are some of the 1/72 Revell Austrian dragoons. Much more plentiful than the Prussian hussars or Austrian artillery sets, and very useful for other country's cavalry too. Happy you are enjoying the game!

This is what happens when the dice decide to be both generous and not.

The arrival turn roll gave me two units on the second turn, but the event roll tossed the general from his horse, preventing them from gaining any advantage movement from their arrival.

Jonathan,

To get better die rolls you need to "sacrifice a virgin" (meaning one that has never been rolled).

A friend used to take all of his dice and line them up on the edge of his bathtub . . . then (using lighter fluid) burn ones that had rolled badly in a game in the tub "to encourage the others".

Okay maybe that's a bit much . . . but the image has sure stuck with me.

Jeff - LOL and I thought some of my old wargaming felows were extreme when they flung bad dice across the room with all their might and emotion!

This is fun, following this game!
