Victory points were allocated to each side for the bridge and small town (seen in the photo above from the Prussian side) and the central ridge and large town (seen in the photo from the Austro-Saxon side). Each side's allocation of points was in an envelope, so unknown to the other player.
This could have been a devastating charge against the Austrian left, had it gone in, but instead these 9th dragoons got the shot s.... out of them!
...since the Prussian main effort was going against the central hill and Austrian left.
... defeated as expected, they retreated, taking the 4th with them, but were all able to rally and continue the fight.
Anything you can do: the Austrian hussars suffer a similar fate at the hands of the 10th cuirassiers.
Back on the Prussian left, it was the turn of the 5th hussars to get a bloody nose...
The 10th cuirassiers charged the Austrian line, suffering casualties on the way in and breaking in the subsequent mêlée.
The Prussian light horsemen were being whittled down, but were doing their job in delaying the Austrian cavalry.
Back on the Prussian right, the 2nd Infantry brigade was making progress against the Austrian left, securing the bridge in the process and forming up on the other bank to fire on the flank of the Austrian line.
Now, it was up to the grenadiers to drive in the centre and win the battle for Frederick.
It was now the end of the eighth turn. Both sides had passed two army morale tests at 1/3 figure losses.
The Austrian heavies were finally coming around to threaten the Prussian left-rear,
The Saxon infantry, centre-left of photo, had awakened from their slumber and they too were moving towards the Prussian left flank.
To conclude, a few closer-up photos of some of the units at game's end.
It had been a most enjoyable game and fun to play a traditional, seventies-style game of line 'em up and have a bash. The objectives added an extra bit of interest to the battle.
The further changes/clarification of fire effects, added rules for brigade commanders to rally troops and refining the army morale tests had all worked. We have 24th November ear-marked for an historical battle to test the changes to the rules further—and to introduce Julian to Zimmermann's rules.
