The Swedes ascend the ridge only to be greeted by musket fire from the Austrian Gabriel Spleny regiment.
French voltigeurs press forward and slowly take a toll on the Austrian gunners.
In the centre of the field the French light cavalry are pursued by the Union brigade...
...and go crashing back through the 9th Polish regiment who promptly take to their heels - it's their first battle too!
The Swedes try to charge home but fail their morale checks and stop short of the Austrian line.
The French have a little more luck on the opposite flank where some brisk musketry thins the ranks of the advancing Russian and Nassau grenadiers.
Lord Hill leads the Guards forward to complete Wellingtons victory as the Swedes turn and run towards the rear.
At the end of turn five the game was declared a victory for the Allies as three of the French units had routed and no victory locations had changed hands. Perhaps not the best game we’ve played this year but as a rule play-test it was invaluable.
Our next game will be another 6mm American Civil War battle.
