Turn for Waterloo has just been recieved and its now confirmed ......the Emperor is ill and Nay (on a bad day) has taken over.

Allied right is rock solid following French NMR's in this area. The Allies have their Guns fully deployed up slope with both Infantry and Cavalry support inc the English Guards, The Light Brigade & the KGL. Meanwhile the French hardly have a gun in action and have not even deployed their light infantry skirmishers.

In contrast the Allied right is in a bit of a mess having lost 22 units for 1 French in the last two turns.

Meanwhile hordes of Prussians are starting to show up.

At this point most people would be on defensive or looking to attack the weakened allied left/heads of Prussian. But in stunning copy of events of the Day we got a fairly unsupported frontal charges by light French Cavalry up against Steady foot and guns!

Result 4 French Corps on left who's commanders even managed to give orders to troops who were not in their command! (If I find out who ordered one single Battalion of mine to storm La Haye its a daul)..........have suffered 8 lost, 13 Rout's and 10 on Waver.

At this point Gen D'Erlon wrote sent his trusted aide de Bailey to the Emperors sick bed to demand command of the Guard to hold the Road back to France........before Nay wastes any more of them sending them up that bloody hill without proper support fire.

If Richard & the other players agree that Grouchy and his men show up on 2nd day we can fight on.

If we have to fight Allies, Prussians & Allied reinforcements on the second day with only the troops we already have we ...........run away..........I of course mean we conduct a plannd withdraw to join up with Grouchy.

Very poor & rushed turn for IC corp last turn due to being away and ultra short deadline.

The good news is that IC corp & IV Cavalry with help from some borrowed troops (French went left & right after 3rd commander dropped out........Royalist Rat) have taken their objectives and reduced Picton's command to X2 Battalions of foot. They have also mangled Wellingtons Cavalry (Backing up Picton the Allied left has lost X3 Brigades of British Cavalry and X3 Brigades of Netherlands Cav are down to X2 Squadrons).

IC Corp has also been fighting a delaying action against the Prussians and still holds most of Frichermont. Its Streets now so full of bodies in Prussian Blue that they are having to bring up massed Artillery to clear the place.

Victory is ours??????.........Agh No since the French Left seems to have fallen to bits & Grouchy has still not showed up!

My theory of Prussian Movement is that they are fighting in such a way as to make sure the Allies have to do as much fighting as possible and Wellington's Army suffers max losses.

But were the hell is Grouchy...........its getting very lonely in the Alamo (AKA Frichermont)

Not much left on the French left, but equally not that much on the Allied center, if Grouchy turns up then victory could/would/should be ours........
