More of Greg Symko's beautifully painted troops on review prior to the openning act of our drama.
The action is taking place on the French left flank. I have moved one of the center units to support the dragoons. I keep my left-most dragoon unit stationary and move my other a short distance forward to blast the approaching Allied hordes. They move up to the hasty works but not over. I blast the Allies right most unit, a Grenadier stand with my dragoons and cause heavy casualties. Not knowing the size of the unit (I am assuming its a small stand so its a small unit), I decide to charge it during my next turn, if the dragoons are willing and the computer gods allow. My artillery have also punished the advancing blue flagged pike and shot unit which is lagging behind. Rich has sent the second black flagged French infantry (pike and shot) unit to bolster the defense of the camp. The other French units blast over the works at the Allies with minimal result.
Rich assumes command of our reinforcements. The troops facing Mike Payne's slowly advancing command have routed out of sympathy to their colleagues in gray and have abandoned their works. Seeing their colleagues on the flank flowing to the rear they decided it was a good idea and joined them.
Despite only having our commander in chief to rally our rearward looking troops, his liberal use of cognac and dashing countenance seem to have rallied our lads and they prepare to defend the camp barricades. It also doesn't hurt that the victorious Allies are just as tired as we are and seem hesitant to assault yet another prepared position.
