|Cossacks vs. Lancers, Chasseurs and Dragoons - oh my!|
|Field of battle in action, a mix of fields, woods and hills|
Dawn attack of the French saw the Cossacks being the ones to move the most! Using a simple red/black card system from an ordinary Hoyle deck, we moved the cossacks when a red card came up, and many did during the first turn.
The second turn was more balanced and now the fight was in full swing!
|skirmish fighting was in action all over the field from early on|
By turn three the French had overcome the numbers of the Cossacks and now were wearing the down with lances and sword (indeed only a handful of dead men did not use all their pistols in the first three turns).

My thanks to David, Mike, Mike, Peter, Jeff & Courtenay for playing out the action.
