After initial running up, the fight fast closes in around the centre village and the left (Barts) flank. Lots of shots and enfilades were exchanged and Bart did one or more of his famous charges ... but at the end he gave all command dice (the staff officers) to me and said here, you must decide the battle ... so I guess in the end it didn't went that well.
On my side I had Alistair in a good check, as we both agreed that we were the defensive part of the battle field. So for a long time apart from moving no charges happened. Until proposed a (typical German all or nothing move) to split the command chain of the French into two ... it was mildly successful ... but not for longer than one turn ... so really not ... in the end ...
...and then after a time Bart said I had to attack to "turn the tide" ... to prevent a draw... well you can guess, I routed an infantry with a light Artillery attached, that detachment was a kill (as Artillery break when they are routed) ...hsmmfhh ...
So we agreed on a draw ... as our lines really looked not so much sustainable in the long run.
But the BUA test was good and successful, and the reception gets better and better.
Maybe I should think about getting the PDF at some time ... ;)
