    After a months planning I put on a refight of Ligny at my local clubs show “Gauntlet”

    I concentrated on the action involving the Prussian I and II Corps and scaled down the action so Divisions were represented by brigades so about a third of the units involved, but still 60 per side.

    The rules were Black Powder with some local variations, in particular a change to the sequence of play. Then for this game I added a role for senior commanders who had to issue orders to their subordinate commanders, which had to be followed until changed.

    Quite a few pictures and commentary over on my blog, but not as many as I would have liked as umpires don’t always get the chance to take pictures

    Very nice, interesting layout of the table.

    Was the arrival of part of d’Erlon’s Corps a certainty and known to both players?

    No, except they knew their history.  It was randomised and at most only a “Division” would arrive and it was prone to retire on any failed order roll.

    I’ve added some umpires notes on my blog that may clarify this
