2 FML Mercy (Dep.)
4 bn. Fusiliers
3 GFWM Pálffy (Dep.)

The Task of the allies is to retreat in good order. The small stream in the south is fordable.
Every unit with less than 3 hits marching over point A (or around 20cm) gives the French Player 1 Point. Every unit with 3 or 4 hits gives 1/2 Points. The French win with 6 Points, but feel free to change victory conditions. Retreating with 5-4 Points means a draw.
The elector of Bavaria has a lot of Problems. First his hessian and Palatinate allies are'nt reliable. So after the loss of Vilshofen he has to begin negotiations with the austrians at Füssen. His army is near a final Desaster without Money to buy Food or pay soldiers. So desertion is normal.
General Ségur learns of the full retreat of his allies to late. In his view he will blame later the bavarian peace-party and especially FM Seckendorff. At Pfaffenhofen the austrian avantgarde under command of FML Mercy starts a serious attack. There's a good Chance for the austrians to make the complete army under Ségur prisoner of war!
The scenario is situated in the moment after the loss of Pfaffenhofen to the small austrian avantgarde 200 dragoons strong. Ségur organize to creat a defensive Position (one of 3 defensive positions in this battle, which was more a chase than a real battle). The map follows a contemporary plan by the French. There are a lot of uncertainties about this decesive battle of the war in Bavaria.
The table is around 2,40mx1,80m, so it's for 28 or 24mm figures.
The hills are gentle, the stream is fordable.
