The French force is primarily infantry whereas the Austrians have a slightly greater preponderance of cavalry.

 

On our diagram each army looks like this

 

Fig 1. The armies at rest

 

 

Side two sides dice to see who is the attacker and who is the defender the French player rolls a 3 and the Austrian player a 5. The Austrian player will attack.

 

The terrain is setup and agreed to.

 

Fig 2. The battle field

 

 

 

The French player sets up first as he is the defender and may setup to 10APs worth of units anywhere in his deployment zone. He choose to bring on 5 infantry with the bulk of his forces ready to seize Bundaberg

Fig3 French armies 5 infantry in deployment zone

 

The Austrian player chooses to bring on all his artillery and 2 infantry, he squarely lays out a claim to the center heights of the board.

Fig4 Austrian player 4 units

 

 

 

 

The French player now chooses his first reinforcement point and decides the order in which he wishes the units to appear. He starts with artillery then some cavalry then remaining infantry.

Fig5 French reinforcement point 1

 

 

 

The Austrian player now picks his first reinforcement point which is a conservative choice of the central road to the battlefield.

Fig6 Austrian reinforcement point 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fig 7 the second French reinforcement point.

 

 

 

 

Fig 8 an aggressive move the Austrian player goes for a flank attack just outside the 6 limit of enemy forces.
