Barcephus and I ran a Seven Years War game at the local wargaming convention, basically it was refight of the Battle of Krefeld. Instead of the French trying to hold off a Hanoverian led assault, we had the Austrians trying to deal with the Prussians. I guess thats what comes from not having a Hanoverian army lying around. (We could have easily put out the French!) I know this comes as a surprise to friends who think I have every wargaming army out there, sorry, no redcoats. But maybe soon. (I did buy some flags...its a start)
The game itself went very well, especially for a convention game. We were fortunate to have one player who had used the rules before, so he had a clue. The Prussians could have gotten lucky, but they got bogged down in the same situation we had the first couple of dry runs. The guy commanding the Prussian flanking force got distracted by Austrian light troops holding a couple of built up areas, and he sacrificed a brigade of grenadiers, the best troops he had, to dig them out. He did however, destroy the Bavarians and Wurttemburgers fighting alongside the Austrians, but they were enough of a speed bump to allow the Austrians to reposition and win the game.
