A Study in BAD Luck!

We gathered to play out the cavalry battle scenario on Saturday November 3rd. I will spare you the suspense of wondering what happened... it was an Allied Victory. My poor tactics and HORRID dice rolls caused my French units to lose almost every melee that they were engaged in. I look forward to trying the scenario again as I think that it would be difficult for me to play as badly again!

I have included some pictures but they are not very good as I had trouble getting the camera to focus! If nothing else, you get a general idea of the size of the battle.

Sorry that the game did not pan out at all as you had hoped. It looks great nevertheless and the photos really capture the large dimensions of the table—fantastic!
