French infantry advance into heavy Austrian fire! On a gaming note, I should observe that my friend, Barry, presented me a set of polyhedral dice in honor of the occasion of my birthday (you can never have too many polyhedral dice, especially with Piquet/Field of Battle! Barry mentioned something about their being the most hideous color he could find - an orangey-yellow with red and bright green speckles all over and green numbers. In a flash of inspiration (or something), I proclaimed them to be the "Jalapeno Dice", and therefore indisputably "hot" dice. Indeed, they rolled pretty well for me that day!
The next set of pictures is from the version of Teugen-Hausen that we ran at HAVOC 2009, Battle Group Boston's annual wargames convention held in April every year in Shrewsbury, MA (just outside of Worchester). We used some lessons learned from the first action to improve the scenario.
The village of Hausen, with Austrian support elements
We ran this game one more time, at Historicon 2009, with Thomas Kinstler at the helm. I didn't get any pictures of that one, as I was running another game at the same time, only set 300 years earlier - Agnadello 1509 with Peter Hess, using Band of Brothers 2nd edition - Venice vs. France. Teugen-Hausen is one of more than 20 scenarios to be included in the Blunders on the Danube, 1809 scenario book. Hopefully revisiting this battle will help get me back on track to finish the work remaining to complete the project!
