The center of the Austrian Army arrayed and waiting for the bluecoats:

in the first line the Aremberg division (IR 26 Puebla, IR 28 Wied, IR 1 Kaiser, IR 7 Niepperg, IR 42 Gaisruck) and the Sincere division (IR 17 Kollowrat, IR 27 Baden-Durlach, IR 2 Herzog Karl and IR 8 Hildinburghausen). In the second line the powerful Wied division (IR 3 Lothringen, IR 12 Botta, IR 21 Aremberg, IR 56 Mercy, IR 47 Harrach, IR 50 Harsch, IR 54 Sincere and IR 59 Leopold Daun).

Fabrizio, an excellent start and I look forward to reading of future SYW 6mm editions using Volley & Bayonet.

I've added a link at my own blog.

Splendid - excellent to see the whitecoats mustering in force! :-)

(If only the battle could be made to have the right result i.e. NOT a Prussian victory... ;-))
