French forces will be concentrated in the woods and will comprise two brigades of Old Guard infantry with plenty of Guard Chasseur skirmishers out front. One Young Guard brigade, one French line brigade and one French conscript brigade will push through the woods with some cavalry support on both flanks. The majority of French cavalry will appear later on the French right flank. This will include the Guard cavalry. The majority of the artillery will also be coming down the north/south track/road through the forest.
|From a previous game. French cavalry advance.|
In reserve the Austrians will have a further division comprising two brigades of infantry, together with two heavy cavalry brigades, both with horse artillery.
Foot artillery will be spaced evenly across the battlefield. The reserve division in Hanau will have two 12lbs heavy batteries complete with limbers and caissons.
Unknown to the French there will be a Cossack brigade of cavalry roaming around somewhere.
That's the idea….could easily change!
