The deployment at Wiederitzsch

Both sides have deployed at Wiederitzsch. The Polish have occupied Klein Wiederitzsch, placing one battalion at the cemetery and one in the village itself. The other wo battalions of the Dombrwosky's division are in reserve in the space between the twin villages. The Polish/French light cavaly is deployed on both flanks, whereas the French "heavy" cavalry (really "dragons d'Espagne") are in the rearguard.

The Langeron's forces are menacing the front of the Wiederiztsch with the infantry, whereas the cavaly is trying to outflank the position.

The scene is ready for the fight and both sides are expecting reinforcements.

    I've just caught up with your progress after being away on holidays. You have been very busy! I enjoyed your last Peninsula battle and this one looks like another beauty. Keep it up!

  2. Hi Rafa

    That's a lot of figures you have on the table for this one. I can also see that you still have a lot of stuff off table in those storage boxes, you must have quite a collection by now!
