  1. Quite a beating "Garden til fods" took - what about Sehested, did he still command the southern Jutland Slesvig cavalry at this time?

    It would be interesting to refight it from the other side and see if the Williamites could do any better.

    1. That game was the first time that H&D have actually gamed together on the same side, usually we end up fighting against each other. I can't imagine either of us would have the same run of bad luck at morale tests as you did Gerry, not even I can roll that many 1's in a row.

  5. Sounds like a challenge Gerry! Sad to see my lads in Brewer's regiment got wiped out!
