Battle of the OglioThis battle features a major river intersecting the tabletop with two bridges and troops from both armies flowing on throughout the first day of battle. Our armies (the armies of the east represented by Prussian and Russian figures) started holding one bridge, with the enemy establishing a bridgehead on the other. Turn one cavalry reinforcements for the East allowed us to contest the bridgehead. When we called it the Western army (represented by French and Austrian figures) had a considerable figure advantage but were still fighting to expand their bridgehead. Photos below are mostly sequential with the final photo the status of the game as we broke for the day.
Battle of the ReggioThis battle features the stone-walled town of Reggio which is nestled between two major rivers and abutted with a small forest. A minor marshy stream is also present on the battlefield southwest of the town. The Western army started with two corps if infantry occupying the town with three Eastern corps assaulting. Later in the day each army added an additional cavalry corps. Again photos are relatively sequential with the final position shown in the final photo.
We hope to continue both games tomorrow if possible. If not we will be scheduling another day of gaming as soon as possible.
