40mm: Tussle at Tottendorf

40mm figs skirmish game....

After the brigands raid on Apfelstrudel, a small force of troops was assembled to root them out - hearing that the brigands had establish a camp at the small town of Tottendorf, they set out. However their approach was reported to the brigands.
The brigands hold a short meeting to decide whether to fight or flee, they decide to fight (emboldened by their recent success at Apfelstrudel)
One group of brigands is posted at the bridge while another heads off to defend the ford over the river ..
The small Wittenberg force of some Boritzy Chasseurs and Kings Jager corps aproach the river ...
Captain Scharfe of the jagers falls wounded in the ford leading his mean across, initial brisk fire from the brigands forces the jagers back ..
Meanwhile the rest of brigands have left the town and are moving to reinforce the ford and the bridge ..
The chasseurs charge the bridge, the brigands just manage hold them ..
The chasseurs gain the upper hand at the bridge and the brigands fall back, while over at the ford the jagers have advanced and open fire ...
The chassuers are over the bridge and pursuing the brigands, at the ford the jagers are in a firefight with the brigands defending it ...
The jagers cross the ford in pursuit of the brigands who have made a run for it; the chasseurs drive home into the brigands who make a determined last stand ...
The chasseurs continue their fight, the rest of the brigands are now in full flight ....
The chasseurs reform, while their opponents have made a break for  it ...
The jagers try and pick off a few of the stragglers , while the mounted jagers chase the largest group of brigands ..
The Wittenberg forces move into the town and search all the houses, some of the brigands escape, including their leader, into the forest on the other side of the town.
