Holding The Village (Parte the First)

First published 13/01/13

Leaving my Napoleonic troubles behind me, I decided to return to an old favourite - 'Charge' and play a game using them and my 40mm SYW  figures.

In a audacious move Col. Scheither and his Frei-Korp have made a night attack on the French held village of Malerischen Alten Dorf and driven the small garrison out . He has established his force in and around the village to hold the French off till reinforcements reach them.

To the right of the village the cannon .

To the left the Grenadier company hold a small orchard .

The centre is held by the Jaeger company , in and around the houses and narrow streets . The Colonel has held the Carbineer company to the rear as a reserve. They await the French !.

They do not have to wait long !. The Comte De Fru-Fru appalled by the effrontery of the Allies in capturing the village in such a underhand way as a night attack, is leading a force to recapture the village . The Chasseurs De Sombreuil lead the way .

Followed by the Regiment Du Roi.

The table set up for the battle. I will be using 'Charge' rules with the solo adaption of drawing cards for moving units - Black cards for the French ,Red cards for the Allies . The game will last 1 day (20 moves) and the arrival of reinforcements for the Allies will be done by a increasing dice roll per move . (on move one - 1D6 on move two 2D6 etc a 6 being needed to bring on reinforcements) . All muskets will have only 6 shots of ammunition . Too be continued........
