So no AAR as such, just some thoughts about the game. As usual there was some banter. Mostly about Ian this time and some outrageous manoeuvres he had carried out in the previous game and that "Postie" should go on the wall of SHAME. Well Postie should, but mostly for his private life and not he does in a wargames capacity. I am not saying he sexually interferes with hedgehogs I am not saying that at all. But now you have that thought in your head you will never look on him the same way again!
Before I get into that. I suspect that you will read a TRUTHFULL account of the whole day here. From Tamsin.
AKA Wargames Girl. http://wargaminggirl.blogspot.co.uk/
A slightly less accurate account here by Big Lee http://www.blmablog.com/
And a load of scuttlebutt and disparaging remarks here by Fran http://theangrylurker.blogspot.co.uk/
And also here by Ray http://onelover-ray.blogspot.co.uk/
Now mostly they will take their time in posting any AAR as they all want to see what Tamsin writes first and then copy it while making their own exploits sound heroic and the opponents sound less so. Therefore you will have to wait a while for some I think.
And the nice neat cavalry charge of the Prussians was no more. Which is to say that most of the Prussian cavalry lost their individual battles and one unit was pushed from the board.
This is where I had to leave the game. So I will be interested to know how the game turns out. Will the Austrian cavalry continue to do well and eventually roll up the Prussian flank. Or will Tamsin get lucky with the dice and counterattack successfully.
And this still leaves the whole of the far end of the table with all the infantry. Would the Prussians take the high ground and what would Surgit do as that really could be anything!
That's it for today. Other than to say check the blogs listed above as sooner or later those good people will post a full game AAR. While mine takes us up to the end of turn 2.
Thanks for looking. I will post some more WW1 Germans next time. All the best Clint.
