|I thought the new battle mat looked very smart!
|The Prussian cavalry decided to stay west of Kutzdorf as they advanced, leaving their flank exposed.
The Austrian infantry started to move off the ridge to form a south-facing line.
|The Prussian grenadiers decided to risk a lone charge at the nearest Austrian unit, and the gamble paid off. The supporting Austrian artillery scored no hits, but the Prussian dice rolling was decisive. 7 hits equals Austrian unit routed!
|The 2 sides were soon facing off in a solid linear fashion.
Apart from those Austrian cuirassiers dodging round to the east of Kutzdorf.
|Meanwhile the Prussian grenadiers continued into another Austrian battalion
who were also bundled off the table.
|At this stage the Prussians were in high spirits. Having wrecked the Austrian right,
the grenadiers were joined by the Freikorps in an attempt to exploit their advantage.
|The Freikorps skirmishers were re-based Stuart Asquith figures.
|And here we go - the Austrian cavalry co-ordinate their charge
and the Prussian dragoons are in trouble.
|Oops. The right hand Prussian dragoons rout, and they carry away
the other regiment and the nearest artillery battery.
|The end. After 8 moves, the Prussians have lost 7 units and they have broken.
The Austrians have lost 4 units, damaged but triumphant.
