Raguhn: the new Lasalle Solo Scenario

The research for the new Lasalle solo Scenario (I am not still sure of the final name) is almost done. As said in previous posts, the French forces belong to Morand’s 12th Division of the Bertrand’s IV Corps, acting as right flank guard of the general French advance towards the Army of Silesia, and to Roussel’s 2nd Lt Cavalry Division (Sebastiani’s II Corps) part of the french advance guard. The Russians are part of the Osten Sacken’s XI Corps, left behind in a dangerous isolation, when Bluecher realized that Napoleon himself was advancing against him at full speed with several Army Corps and tried unsuccesfully to cross the River at Duben (see the Duben Scenario and the corresponding AAR). The actual strategical situation at October 8 is depicted on this re-touched contemporary map (see the original version in Napoleon-Series).

This is a "What if" Scenario not only because the actual history was slightly different and neither Bertrand nor Sebastiani catched Osten-Sacken and, but also because of the solo mechanisms used, only part of the Russian forces will appear on the tablegame (although the French forces do appear in full).
Below we can see the first version of the OOB for the Scenario. It is heavily based on the Nafziger's OOBs.
