On to the third scenario of Waterloo 1815: Fallen Eagles II, where the Prussians make their appearance. Each side receives two formations with numerous maneuver elements. The Prussians must attack resolutely, fully aware of their inferior quality. They risk losing many units in this attack. However, their essential task is to break through the French right flank in time to make an impact in the main battleThe French play a purely defensive role, delaying the Prussians and inflicting as many casualties as possible.
The French have taken so many casualties that all formations are demoralized. Even if the VI The Corps d’Armée should rally, the force is exhausted and hors-de-combat. With the French right flank in ruins, the Prussians are able to advance into the French center and join the British for the final phase of the Battle of La Belle Aliance.
Despite their overwhelming attack, this is quite a narrow Prussian victory in game-terms. They have conquered a relevant town hex and secured all three exit road hexes. This counts for four of the seven victory locations. The French were close to secure a narrow victory for themselves, if only one of the routing guards units had rallied in time.
As for the lessons learned, I need to observe the rules of demoralization during battle, otherwise the formations will continue fighting forever. Playing solo this scenario was fun and educational. I probabely wouldn’t find it that interesting to play the French in a two-player game though.
