A SYW game

Last weekend a few of the Southern Strategists got together for a SYW bash.

All the figures are from Chris Packer's collection and the rules we used were "Die Kriegskunst".

 The Prussians were charged with attacking an Austrian held village in the centre of the table.

The Prussian centre marches toward the Austrian lines.

Austrians defending the village church.

Prussian cavalry attempting to outflank the Austrian lines.

The Prussian right steaming toward the waiting Austrians.

Austrian cavalry coming to face the Prussian horse.

The first of several cavalry clashes this day.

Slow progress against the Austrians and some Prussian reserves getting into the action.

After several hours gaming the Prussians were very slowly pushing the Austrians back. With things going marginally in favour of the Prussians the Austrians conceded and began to abandon the field to the Prussians.

An excellent game and an awesome way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Thanks guys.
