First up, Doug and Seth ran a splendid Battle of Eckmuhl game, using their own rule set. They always put on a fast, furious and fun game.
Some naive person put me in charge of Davout's enormous corps at the very heart of the French army.
Like some monster Oliphant, my horde fought its way up the table, annihilating my friend Ron's corps and - briefly- taking some of my objectives.
The Austrians had done a good job at hollowing my formations out on my way there, however, and I turned out to be pretty easy prey when, in the game's final rounds, they threw their entire reserve at me and wiped me out. Oh well. Getting wiped out is always worth it if you can destroy one of your friends first. Thanks to Doug and Seth for another terrific game.
My league was the Vichy French.I wad trying to get things in town more or less under control so as to keep the Germans off my back.
Rick kept following me around trying to talk me into letting him have the necessary paperwork to get himself and his dame out of Casablanca but, unsentimental swine that I was, I wasn't having any of it.
More below the fold....
