This time, I've gone for two of the later armies, dating around 1680s. I chose Later Poles vs League of Ausburg, so, two very different choices. The LoAs power is high volume of shooting where as the Poles are very mounted focused, with the Winged Hussars as their central punch.
The table is a bit shorter as I'm using my coffee table rather than sitting on the floor. So, I shorted the deployment which kept the rest of the table the same dimensions.
The end result was a convincing win to the Poles as they broke thru both flanks with their mounted wings, with the German and Polish mounted charging down the right flank of the LoA.
The Poles won the initiative and chose to attack in the forest.
The LoA deployed a water way and a village ( I used a star fort I bought at Warfare 2018) on one flank and their forest was moved over to the Polish side. The Poles only deployed a road and a brush, which was removed.
Turn 1, The Poles advance.
They loose both rounds of shooting, taking heavy fire from the LoA.
The Polish C n C moves to rally one of the Polish Foot that had three markers.
The roll is a 4 on the dice, so, with Rear Support and the General attached, a +2 is added to the dice. The result is 2 more than required and so, two markers are removed.
The Poles advance to charging range after recovering some cohesion markers
The Winged Hussars line up for a charge
The Polish mounted wings charge in.
On the left flank, the German horse contact the wounded Bayonet Battle Unit
On the right hand side, the Winged Hussars contact. Time to see what Elite Shock can do.
The Hussars break thru and must step forward due to being Shock.
One Hussar rolled a 1-6 and took two cohesion markers
On the left flank, the German mounted broke the Bayonet Battle Unit in one turn and we now have the first breakthru.
The German mounted flank charge the Later Pike & Shot.
The LoA P&S doesn't take a cohesion marker as isn't engaged.
This doesn't bode well (the Poles roll a 6 on the dice)
Cav vs flank of Heavy Infantry +1
Flank Attack +1
0 as it was contacted on flank
The LoA takes three cohesion markers
Its all over
The LoA P&S that was contacted on the flank in Turn 5 has now conformed. It makes a 1/4 turn to face the German mounted who is on it's flank.
In Turn 6, a Polish Carbine mounted horse contacts it in the flank, this time causing it to take a cohesion marker
