Yes I bet you thought I forgot and was attracted to new shiny things yes? Well we are back focussing for a little longer on this interesting system.
Le Retour l Empereur is more involved but not complex than its national brethren Fallen Eagles. Once game play is completed we will take a brief look at the differences and details.
Le Retour relies on streamline tactical rules, but a fair bit more detail than some games of similar scales. By only quibble at the moment is a user interface one, which revolve around usage of the counters and markers and the lack of ALL the details required for fire and combat on the charts.
The Cavalry must first execute its charges. Which only occurs on the Right wing. On the left other units move to position if Hougomont falls quickly.
Arty positions to pound Le Hay and front facing formations on the ridge.
The French roll extremely well. I the cavalry charge it is a near run thing, but Vivien’s horse is overwhelmed by 4th Corps Cav.
End of French turn on turn 2.
[Edit] mistakes made. Arty used cumulative values wen stacked in same hex….tsk tsk. This is likely a significant enough error to warrant a re start or a partial restart in any case.
