1809 Campaign: 20th April Map

Map done sooner than expected.

I smell another battle soon.

NB: acting on the suggestion of St Hilaire, Lefebvre has left III/5 as a rearguard at Kelheim.

What has been interesting so far - compared to other campaigns I have fought in, is the way that manoevre is so dominated by logistical concerns (i.e. staying on the solid roads and only using the dotted ones if there is a safe [supplied] end point). This shows just what a gamble some flank attacks can be - especially if they fail.

Hi Steve

Happy New Year.

Just picked up WSS issue 58, thanks for a fantastic article. I really enjoyed reading it as I've been toying with 6mm Napoleonics for some time and this was the final inspiration I needed to get started this year.

Hope you and the family are well and I look forward to reading more of your posts and hopefully getting a chance to see some of your figures if you do any shows this year.

All the best for 2012.
Peter.
