It has been a while since I've updated the blog with a post, but I've been favouring gaming and painting in free time over blogging recently. :) Plus the points based games which we have been playing are not as interesting as historical refights to blog about I think. However, we did do a historical refight today, with the battle of Gorzyce in 1809 - Austrians attempting to evict a Polish Army from territory they claim in the 1809 campaign.
This is a scenario taken from the Roads to Vienna scenario book by Michael Hopper, and slightly modified. Matt used his Polish (painted as Vistula legion but ignore that!), and I used my Austrians.
Polish: Poniatowski (2 Command rerolls)
Rozniecki Cavalry (2VP): 2 Uhlans, 1 Chasseur
The next attacks on the left go poorly, and two large Austrian units are bloodily repulsed. The Poles lack numbers to defend everywhere though, so the first Austrian unit is able to advance over the dike berm, hoping the artillery misses...
Rozniekis Brigades are broken as is Branowaczky Cavalry. Branowaczky's Infantry is very close to breaking. Nonetheless a decisive Austrian Victory with 5VP to 1VP.
