Campaign Updates
« on: December 14, 2021, 12:09:53 AM »
Gentlemen, the campaign has started :winner

15 morning saw a lot of works for all the HQs, they had to carefully plan every movement, basing on spies and scouts reports and on their own feelings.

Of course I can't tell more for now about what happened :P but it will be very interesting to see how everything will develop.

I can only say that for me was very instructive to see the campaign coming to life and I realize more things; there are still aspects to refine and improve but the players here are really helping in this stuff making questions and proposing new adjustments. :grouphugg

I'll post updates here from time to time, without breaking the fog of war.

Stay tuned! :pirateship

June 15th is gone.

The Commanders in Chief had received their reports and are thinking about next moves.

Finally the sun came out of the clouds and lit up marching Armies.

Some small actions happened during the past afternoon, the british at Binche retreated in front of a french column but the prussians are still around; will they stay there and fight? Or will prefer to retreat? Will the british came back in force to help their allied? Will the french attack or simply stay there looking for new events?

We will see in this warm 16th morning :howdy

June 16th, 14:00 Battle of Ath report



The Battle of Ath is over. There's a clear victor. The AngloDutch side! The French had to leave the battlefield with enemy cavalry on their heels.

At 10:30 a british infantry division supported by a light cavalry division moved from Grand Mets to the heights NW of Tongre St. Martin, while a heavy cavalry division crossed the river between Houtain and Villers St. Amand deploying south of this village in front of a french heavy cavalry division.

A Dutch division was at Mainvault moving to the south by the main road. They also received a heavy cavalry division as reinforcement at 11.00.

Another french heavy cavalry division was stationing at the crossroad E-NE of Tongre.
The French were quite surprised to find the British on the hill and decided to move back this division to protect the arrivals of the reinforcements.

These started to arrive at 12:00 and deployed in front of the British on the hill (which in the meantime had received support from another light cavalry division that had marched from the road to Renaix to Moulbain) and to the Dutch division near Ladeuze.

The situation for the French quickly becomes critical. After a failed charge of the cuirassiers from the east to repel the British from the hill, successive cavalry charges combined with the advance of the infantry, threw the French in the south back in disorder.
At this point, another British cavalry division arrived from Mainvault hit the French troops, which were deployed between Ladeuze and Hunsignies facing east to fight the Dutch, in the back.

That was enough for the French which called a general retreat and fled towards Leuze pursued by the cavalry which took a lot of prisoners.

The French suffered more than 9000 losses while the British suffered more than 5500 men but many of the wounded will be able to return to their ranks.
