Although I don't have ecaxtly the right figures, I was always interested in the war of the polish succession and the Italian theater of war.
Therefore I wrote a Scenario for Parma.
A Mezou (Dash.) : Brigade Auvergne – 2 bn.s, 1 art. leg.
B Independent : Gardes Piemontaises - 1 bn. (Superior)
C : St. Pierre (Dep.) : 2 x Grenadiers Francais et Piemontaises (Superior except shooting)
D : GL du Guerchois (Dep.) : Brig. Picardie – 4 bn.s, 1 medium art.
E. GL Châtillon (Dep.) : 2 x Cav.
F Savoya : 3 bn.s, 1 art. Leg.
G Cherchais (Dep.) :.Brig. Champagne – 2 bn.s
H GL de Bonas (Dep.) ? :2 x Cav.
I GL Savines (Dep.) ? : 3 x Cav.
Mercy (Dash.) – killed on a 8-12 /
Replaced by: Württemberg (Dash.)
1 FML Hohenembs (Dep.) ? : 2 x cav. (Hamilton Kürassiere, DR Württemberg)
2 FML Sachsen-Hildburghausen (Dep.) : 3 bn.s
3 FML Czungenberger (Dep.) under Mercy’s personal command: 3x gren., 1 x inf. – have to advance in the first turn min. a full move
4 independent: 1 leichte Artillerie, 1 mittlere Artillerie
5 FML Albrecht Wolfgang von Brandenburg-Culmbach (killed on a 8-12) (Dash.) ?: 2 bn.s - not to be moved before turn 2
6 Baron de Vins (killed on a 8-12) (Dep.) ? : 3 x cav. (Mercy Kürassiere, Liechtenstein Drag.) - not to be moved before turn 2
Stream - fordable with infantry (except the bridge at the road)
Walls behind La Croceta - light cover
La Croceta - light cover
Limit 9 turns
French major victory: destroy Austrian army
French minor victory: hold La Croceta until turn 9
Austrian minor victory: destroy 3 allied brigades
Austrian major victory: destroy the allied army
The battle is a cracking nut for the Austrians. Mercy attacked before he deployed his army properly and was shot early during the first attack at the head of his grenadiers.
Please note that Mercy is detached to the 3rd Brigade to give them full speed.
For this battle I decide that Generals killed will be replaced always by lower Quality commanders (dep. -> dith.) because so many Austrian generals were killed and these losses and the chaos were important when the prince of Württemberg decided to retreat.
