Kleine Krieg At Gruningen


Horvath Hussars in Gallian service retire honorably from the field of battle after ambushing the forward squadrons of Colonel Bauer's Germanian task force. Old Glory Austrian figures painted as a Russian hussar squadron (but acting as French hussars today).

Today the Gallian light cavalry patrols set up an ambush of the advance guard of the Germanian army near the town of Gruningen (northeast of Frankfurt Am Main and west of the Vogelsberg). The Germanian cavalry screen commanded by Colonel Bauer of the Black Hussars, had one squadron of hussars badly mauled by the Gallian ambush, but the weight of numbers prevailed and the Gallians were forced to retire back towards Frankfurt.

A very enjoyable series of posts as the story unfolds- all on a very nice terrain layout. Kudos all round.

I really like the "irregular" positioning of the hussar stands.

By any chance, is there a connection to a D.C. gamer of the 70's known as "Groan Again Grunnigen"?
