The Soumy (Soumskii) Hussar Regiment is the last addition to my miniature armies (see here and here for the painting process). During the battle of Pirna, they were brigaded along the Grodno Hussar in the Rüdinger's 1st Brigade of the Milesinov's 1st Hussar Division in the Pahlen III's Cavalry Corps (see here for the OOB).
With some excitement, I did attend his first combat during the 4th turn of the Pirna combat. The Milesinov's Brigade was screening the Russian central sector, when it received the order to charge the German-French 21e Light Cavalry Brigade.
See below the graphical sequence of their fatal fate.
|The leading Russian unit, the Grodno Hussars, receiving the converging fire of the French artillery|
|The Soumy Hussars also suffered, in a lesser extension, the accurate artillery fire|
|The Anhalt Jager zu Pferd charge the Grodno Hussars|
|And the Soumy Hussars countercharge to help their comrades|
|But the Grodno Hussars fall back leaving alone the Soumy Hussars|
|That are broken by the German Jagers in the subsequent hand-to-hand combat!|
