So here is an after action report mostly of pictures. I hope you enjoy it.
Matt's French Force
French Corps de Garde Impériale 1809-1812 & 1815.
1xMs(OG), 2xMs/LI(E) (Young Guard), 1xMs(E) (Vistula Legion only in 1812), 1xHC(Old Guard), 1xLC*(Old Guard), 1xNa (Hs) = 12 points. Note: Old Guard are 2 points and Elite are 1.5 Points.
French Line, 1805-1812 & 1815. 4xMs, 2xMs/LI (Legere), 1xMs (Bavarian Allies, 1809-12 only), 3xHC, 1xLC*, 1xNA = 12 points. That completes Matt's 24 point Force.

One thing that was brought up at our last battle at CSGA was the use of Attack Columns on a road. We are looking into this and I think it makes sense that when you are on a road you have to declare the formation. Either a march or attack column. Seems to make sense.
So that is it until next time. I am looking forward to the next battle against the Guards and also seeing the French take on the Spanish.
Until next battle...
