I planed years ago to play Fontenoy with MAURICE from Sam Mustafa. The size of the table and the number of units are fine for an evening of gaming. Sam Mustafa changed the scale of the battle that it seams that units reflect brigades not bn.s. He did'nt included the austrian cavalry which played no real part in the battle and ignored the austrian and french light troops too. I decided to use his OOB with little changes (for example more british and less hanoverian bn.s, including light French inf. representing the Arquebusiers de Grassin).
Ilten (Dep.) 3 x han. Inf.
Ligonier (Dash.) 3 x brit. Inf., 1 x brit. Elite Inf. (guards or highlanders), 2 x Art. (1x med., 1x light)
Campbell (Dash.) 1 x brit. Cav., 1 x han. Cav. - shot at a 8-12 (replaced by Rothes (Dep.)
Waldeck (Dep.) 1 x hol. Elite Inf., 1x hol. Inf.,
1 x Art.(light) - Special rule for Waldeck: he can Rally off hits like a CinC.
Cronström (Dith.) 2 x hol. Inf.
Hessen-P. (Dith.) 1 x hol. Elite Cav., 1 x hol. Cav.
Grassin (Dep.) 1 x light Inf.
Grammont (Dith.) 1 x Elite Inf. (Gardes F.) - shot at a 8-12 (Charbanne/Dep. would replace him)
D‘Estrées (Dep.) 3 x Inf., 1 x light Art.
Lutteaux (Dash.) 2 x Elite Inf. (Irlandais), 1 x light Art.
Montagne (Dep.) 4 x Inf., 1 x med. Art.
Herouville (Dash.) 4 x French Cav.
Clermont-Tonerre (Dash.) 2 x French Elite Cav.
French Special: Units near the king Rally off hits as with the CinC.
The battlefield: 2,00 x 1,20 m
Fontenoy + Antoing heavy cover
Both Redoubts light cover
River Scheldt not fordable
Marsh in front of Fontenoy and the Bois de Boulogne: halved movement for all cavalryunits
Allied Major victory: Allies occupy Antoing and Fontenoy until the 8th turn and capture the French king.
Allied Minor victory: Allies occupy Fontenoy or Antoing until the 8th turn
French Major Victory: destroy half of the enemy's Units or one ally completely
French Minor Victory: hold Fontenoy and Antoing
I decided that Waldeck get no major role in the battle. He had many of his infantryunits under his personal command, but didn't worked out a own battle plan for his wing. Never the less he has the most reliable units under his own command.
