The Battle of Sodusi....

continued from the previous post .....

The Begovian column marches down the valley towards Sodusi...
The feldjagers scouts made it to safety, Count Boritzy ordered them to locate and 'hurry-on' the infantry regiment and the rest of the uhlan regiment. The count deployed what forces he had: jagers on either side of the valley,  the land militia in the centre and in reserve the uhlans...
 As a  regiment of Wittenberg infantry marches up through the town ...the Begovian light cavalry rode round in front of a small coppice loosing arrows at the troops to their front; the jagers picked off a couple and an ineffective volley from the militia deterred them from repeating the exercise.
The Wittenberg infantry regiment deploys next to the Uhlans. The Begovian light cavalry reform while their infantry comes up ....
The Begovian light cavalry charge the land militia, as their provincial infantry head towards the rocks held by the jagers...
The land militia hold the Begovian cavalry attack....
The Begovian provincial infantry move closer to the rocks and come under fire from the Wittenberg jagers; more Begovian troops are arriving....
The Begovian provincial infantry sent to clear the rocks retreat after being cut down by the fire from the jagers, another provincial infantry unit takes their place as two Begovian janissaries units move up....
The Wittenberg land militia are still fighting the cavalry and are attacked by the lead Begovian janissary regiment...
The land militia under heavy pressure finally break and fall back ....
As the Begovian Janissaries reform they are charged by the Wittenberg uhlans  .....
The Wittenberg uhlans disengage in good order and fall back out of the way, the infantry regiment advances and lets loose a volley at the disorganised janissaries who take heavy casualties ....
The Begovian janissaries fall back unable to match the firepower of the Wittenberg infantry.
Count Boritzy, re-inforced by the rest of the uhlan regiment, reforms his battle lines .....
The Begovian commander having had his light cavalry regiment and provincial infantry badly mauled and finding himself outmatched in cavalry; with insufficient troops to force a passage through decided to withdraw...

A Victory for Wittenberg ....

  2. A fine looking horde of Begovians! Just a probe to test the defences I'm sure.
