French Positions Covering the Key Bridge

28mm Napoleonics:
General de Brigade Action

Several shop regulars really enjoy 28mm Napoleonics, and have been doing a series of games to get comfortable with the General de Brigade rules.

Most recently, they arranged an interesting scenario involving an Austrian force attempting to force a river crossing.

The Austrians Approach the French Left

Screened by Grenzers in skirmish formation, the Austrian force pushed aggressively forward. The French left, covered primarily by cavalry, took heavy fire from the Austrian guns, which deployed centrally on a hill to support the crossing.

The action was hard fought and back and forth, but by focusing on one flank the Austrians were able to secure a crossing before the other French wing was able to intervene. Overall a very visually appealing game, great fun to observe.
