Myself and Pete were using French where Paddy and Paul used British and Prussians respectively.
We set up a 12ft x 4ft table, myself and Paddy faced off along one flank while Pete and Paul faced off along the other. As it was pretty much a pickup game and as Paul and Paddy had no played much before, each player was allowed eight battalions of foot, three regiments of horse and two batteries of artillery.
A close fought battle ensued. Paddy soon broke the French Division of Pete and I had eventually broken Paddys' British. Paul was now sweeping towards me when darkness fell.
Here are some shots from the game, I am still pretty much getting to grips with the camera.
