Sarfala.. the battle ...

The Begovian horse archers set off to worry the Wittenberg infantry,  giving their artillery a good line of sight to start firing on the Wittenberg battery....
 The Begovians send some provincial infantry to secure the woods and farm on the cavalry's flank, however they find Hoflers pandours in residence ....
 the Begovian infantry start their advance towards the Wittenberg lines ...
Action starts on the left; the Land Militia cavalry charge the Begovian light cavalry ...
 The Begovian infantry close on the Wittenberg position ...
 The Wittenberg Uhlans charge forward and engage the Begovian light cavalry to their front ....
The Begovian provincial infantry takes heavy casualties from the Wittenberg infantry
 and lose their nerve, routing back through the next line of advancing troops ...
 The Wittenberg cavalry are pressing the right flank of Begovians hard... but not gaining much ground
 On the other flank the cavalry melee continues
 The second line of advancing infantry fair no better, unable to match the firepower of the opposition, after receiving a fierce volley they turn and rout ....
 Some Wittenberg cavalry see an opportunity and attack the routing and disorganised infantry ....
 The Wittenberg Uhlans finally get the better of the Begovian cavalry who rout pursued by the Uhlans...
On their right flank the Begovians have repulsed the Wittenberg cavalry, both sides have broken off and are re-grouping...
 Osram Pasha with his infantry in shreds and running from the field,  his right flank gone, and the remainder of his army at risk of being surrounded decides to retreat ...

A victory for Wittenberg

  1. Huzzah! Huzzah, I say! A glorious victory for Wittenberg Arms which leads to several questions. Will the army press the invader and drive them from Wittenberg recovering captured towns? Is it possible to capture Osram Pasha? What were the casualties like for Wittenberg? And lastly, what happened to the brigade that chose to drag its heels in joining the main army at the place of battle?
    Superlative piece of work.
