I have uploaded the full Scenario and the After Action Report (AAR) of the combat of Thiessen (September 4, 1813), finished with a French marginal victory of the Bertrand's Italo-Wurttemberg forces over the Bulow's Prussian Army of Silesia. According to Lasalle rule-set, the battle finished in a similar way to the real life, when the Prussians reached their Morale Break level and failed the subsequent test.
You can watch the development of the battle by following the instructions to use the visor.
Next thing, the combat of Dessau, in the previous days to the battle of Lepzig!

I love Cossacks, so my home rule about irregular cavalry units is addressed to overcome that problem, allowing these oportunistic horsemen of the steppe to charge regular units in some situations. However, the presence of Cossacks in the battlefield, can lead to some absurd collateral situations, such the one described above. But irregular cavalry units, like the Cossacks, Kalmuks etc., usually do not stand in front of enemy fire. and many memories of the time, talked about the Cossacks being dispersed after some volleys. Therefore, I have been forced to introduce a new home rule to take into acount
Irregular cavalry units facing fire
When an irregular cavalry unit suffers a casualty from enemy fire (infantry or artillery), it immediately undergoes a Discipline Test with a -2 modifier. If it passes (i.e. it rolls a six), then it may remain in position facing the fire. If it fails, it must immediately make a fall back movement, running for a distance 2D6 BW away from the enemy.
I expect to test this rule in the Dessau scenario.
Watch this space!
