There's one small issue: Dokhtorov can't have done that attach command because him and the independent weren't both on approach.

Oh nuts. Can I just move the 2inf into the approach then?

And here they come! Hey, at least we don't have to push any more. Now they have to go around and dislodge us! Going by the sample game Gutter Owl linked in the main thread, defense seems easier than attack, at least.

Contrary to popular belief, tic-tac-toe isn't purely a game of chance.

ok

edit: and yeah, they fear us now! We might as well start celebrating, what could go wrong

French Attack Declaration

frankenfreak
  • Uses a Detach command (Lannes) to move 1 unit, revealed to be a 2 INF

Combat Resolution

Attack

2 INF - 1 for attacking defenders on approach - 3 for defender 3 INF = -2

Counterattacking would not produce a better result.

Casualties
French: 2 INF is removed, extra hit is lost, 2 morale lost
Allied: 3 INF becomes 2 INF

Allied Movement

frankenfreak
  • Vandamme moves 64 -> 73 reserve.

Updated Map:



Allied Morale: 16 (Guards Used)
French Morale: 18 (Heavy Cavalry Used)

French Commands Left: 3 Independents

That's right, Frenchies. Just keep going on like that. Just like that. Heck, feel free to try breaching the 93-94 approach too. I got some fun toys waiting for you...

...unless I've totally misread the rules and my arty is actually very vulnerable?

The only communication allowed is me to y'all.

Regardless, as an overall rules direction, we are now relatively on the defensive; they need to take our stars and we need to stop them, rather than how the battle started, which was the reverse.

I agree.

e: I admit I did do a double take when I saw the map today. Why can't the French sit back and accept their doom?!
