Move Nine Begins. . .

At the start of Move Nine, Major von Hirschbiegel orders Colonel von Finknottle's Newts inside the village buildings. You can observe them taking their positions in the photo above. It seems increasingly unlikely that Colonel von Grundig will be able to dislodge the Zichenauer menace from Piceklhaubewicz now.


Nevertheless, Colonel von Grundig orders his men into line before the village on its eastern side and the copse just to its south. Above, we see the remaining Jager zu Fuss in open order, the von Laurenz Musketeers in a close order line with Squadron A of the 4th Dragoons on their right.


And on the heights just to the east of the village is the Stollenian half battery, cooly awaiting the order to open fire from Colonel von Grundig, who sits astride his horse nearby.


Meanwhile, Squadron B of the 4th Dragoons has been ordered to swing around the north side of the village. So far, so good.


Finally, here is a general view of the battlefield at the start of Move Nine after initial moves and realignments have taken place. Zichenau's Grenadiere zu Pferd and the Wolmar-Bock Regiment, on loan from allied Pillau-Zerbst (unseen here), are still awaiting orders from Major von Hirschbiegel.

Stokes,

The interior of those buildings are wonderful . . . and I also like that final "overhead" photo.

Loving the action Stokes. The photos bring the game to life so that it's almost like being there. Don't get overconfident with those dice though. If you're anything like me, they'll let you down just when need them most.

Steve.

The excitement continues...
I wonder if you intend to write up the game for publication later? Perhaps an article on the methodology employed instead...
