Solo re-fight of Mockern 16 Oct 1813 - 1st Hour includes OOB

Post by ShadowDragon »

Having just done a play-by-email game of Mockern with a set of rules where one infantry unit = 1200 to 3000 troops, I then used the table set up for a General d'Armee solo game. Because of the scale the GdA game is at half scale (i.e., a division becomes a brigade). The battle is from 1400-1800. Here's the link to the description of the 1st hour (1400-1500).

This battle was going to be interesting for the GdA rules due to the large amount of artillery on each side.

I'll post the Orders of Battle in replies to this post.

And apologies for the Flickr advertisements but they do pay for the privileges' of hosting photos.

The remaining 3 hours will be posted as I get the annotation done for each hour of battle.

Link to the next (2nd) hour post: https://toofatlardies.co.uk/forum/viewt ... 428#p87428

ETA: Just noticed that 'Friedrichs' is incorrectly shown as 'Freidrichs' in the photos.

Thanks for appreciating it. It would have been a shame to have let the research into the OOB for the brigade level game go to waste without a GdA game out of it. :D
