I kicked my summer holiday off to a flying start with a Seven Years War game at Saxon Dog HQ.
Brian Phillips and I took command of my new Austrian army against Jack Glanville and Roger Donaldson with their Prussian collections. We used the Black Powder rules on a 6 by 4 table.
The game kicked off when Brian took his Austrian infantry command through the village attempting to advance on the Prussian right wing.
I advanced my Cavalry and Infantry brigades on the Prussian Left. I think it is not unfair to say Brian and I struggled with the movement dice and I found myself caught in the open 'too close to the enemy' in the wrong battlefield formation!
Jack seeing my school boy error quickly moved a Prussian Currasier brigade forward. Sweeping the Austrian Hussars off the table in one turn.
We had a great time and plan a much larger SYW game on a very large table soon.
Thanks to Rodger, Jack and Brian for making the trip to sunny Fife. I'm now away on my holidays and will post more images when I'm back. No doubt Jack will have a totally 'Prussian biased ' version of game on his Blog soon :)
