Game Preparation - Linz 1809

I am currently preparing a scenario for our club game day. I am running a Volley & Bayonet game based on the Battle of Urfahr-Linz in 1809. During this battle an Austrian force under General Kollwrat attempted to cut the French lines of communications by crossing the Danube at Linz. The lines of communication were defended by Wurttemberg and Saxon troops under General Vandamme and General Bernadotte respectively. In the historical battle General Kollwrat did not coordinate his advance properly and the Wurttemberg troops fought very well resulting in a solid French Allied victory.
Right now I have all of the paperwork prepared and all of the troops are ready to go. I will post some pictures when the game is played and provide an after action review.

First Entry of a new blogger

Hi, this is my first attempt at a blog site. I hope to use this to communicate my wargame experiences - games and campaigns that I participate in, terrain and figure painting - everything.
