The rules for this scenario are particularly straightforward, without visibility or reinforcements rules. The Swedish army is split in two parts, separated by the Hasselberg and rough terrain. The force on the right is to assault the Allbuch defended by 4 infantry units and 2 artilleries. The force on the left is to stay on the defensive (the opposite of their historic plans). The Catholics plan to outflank the Swedish position by the right.



Turn 1: The Swedish infantry attacks the Allbuch, with a major initial bonus (strength tripled during the first turn). The Catholic right advances.

Turn 2: Two Catholic infantries are eliminated. The capture of the hill is a matter of time. A part of the Catholic army stays on the Schonfeld in observation.



Turn 3: A Catholic cavalry is disrupted by the fire of the guns in front of the Swedish line and then eliminated. The two last Catholic infantries on the Allbuch are eliminated.

Turn 4: The two artilleries on the Allbuch are captured by the Swedes. Another Catholic infantry is eliminated. The attack on the Swedish left is ineffective for the moment. The Swedes have 82 victory points, the Catholic League 0.



Turn 5: Another Catholic infantry is eliminated. The Catholics eliminate the 1st Pfuls infantry and score their first points.

Turn 6: The Swedes attack the Schonfeld (the hill on the center). One infantry on each side is eliminated. On the Swedish left, the line stands firm and two cavalries and one infantry are eliminated on the Catholic side. Swedes: 144 / Catholic League: 46.



Turn 7: Two Catholic and one Swedish infantries are eliminated this turn.

Turn 8: No less than six Catholic cavalry units are eliminated. A party of Swedish cavalry with Rostien moves towards the guns on the Schonfeld. That’s it: the demoralization levels of the Catholic cavalry and then of the Catholic infantry are reached. The result is that every disrupted unit not stacked with a leader (five cavalries and one infantry this turn) is eliminated. One Swedish cavalry is eliminated. Swedes: 234 / Catholic League: 75.



Turn 9: Two Catholic artilleries are captured. Three Catholic cavalries are eliminated (one because of combat, two because of demoralization).

Turn 10: Five more cavalries and one infantry are eliminated because of demoralization. The Catholics manage to eliminate two Swedish cavalries. Swedes: 336 / Catholic League: 83.



The Swedes win a crushing victory. An all out attack is obviously not the solution for the Catholics to win the day.

Thank You for the very nice session report. I found even when the Imperialist sit and wait for the Swedes to come to them the Swedes usually take the Allbuch and then start rolling up the Imperial left while the center's go at it.But after all these decades I have seen the Swedish player get his handed to him also. Very fun battle to play in the quad
