Welcome to the Strelets Forum.
Please feel free to discuss any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures, not simply Strelets.
If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
After some thought, on Saturday we'll be fighting the crucial action on the Austrian left flank at the Battle of Leuthen.
Read here for an account + maps
The Austrians re-enforced their right flank, expecting Fred. to attack there but he counter-marched & hit their weakened left flank, targeting Nadasty’s Corps. We’ll be gaming *this* attack.
The Prussians need to take Leuthen village to roll up the Austrians before re-enforcements came to garrison the village. Our game will end when/if the Prussians reach Leuthen by Turn 8.
That’s their Objective. The Austrians simply (!!??) need to stop them. They get Ratowski's cavalry brigade as a re-enforcement on Turn 3. Otherwise, they'll be heavily outnumbered.
What happened after the Prussians reached Leuthen will be a game for another day.
I’ll have the table already set up as per history (scaling down the numbers used eg 17 battalions of Prussian infantry versus 10 of Austrian + requisite cavalry, artillery, staff & light infantry). Having the figures on table means the Austrians’ surprise at Fred.’s appearance can be simulated (ie they’ll be facing the wrong way!)
Sounds great, donald! That's a small(er) but crucial bit of a big battle..... Will you be posting some images (somewhere) of this re-fight?
Agreed...for the main Austrian army you'd need another c. 40 battalions of Infantry and, amongst other things, about a dozen regiments of Cuirassiers....!! So far as the latter are concerned, that's a lot of boxes of figures that do not yet exist.
Will look forward to photos when they are posted.
PS: have you decided whether you are the Austrian or Prussian commander??
