The Situation at End of Move 2. . .

The state of affairs at the end of Move Two.

No shooting has started yet, but you can see that both Ross's troops (foreground) and mine (background) are racing to seize and control Fickmuhlen Village.  Since the flanks of my lead cavalryrgiment is already exposed, I hope they can make some headway and  wheel to attack the infantry to their left before the enemy cavalry can take effective action.  Greg's move/fire stick is marked at six inch intervals by the way.

Best of luck Stokes. Watch those Canadians - they're a wily bunch.

Looks tricky for the Bordurians there at the end of Move Two and there's always that concern as to whether von Tschatschke is currently alert enough to seize the moment.

One's natural instinct might be to swing the swing the left-side Bordurian cavalry round to face the threat to their left flank, but rushing them forward may be the only opportunity to stop the enemy infantry entering the village. I'll be interested to see how Move Three pans out.

As CP3O would say, "Stokes, I'm afraid you are doomed."
