The Enteburg army formed the right of the battle line their left rested upon a woodland that would soon be filled with Burgundian irregulars.

The Dachsdorfer's push forward into the central woods against the Burgundian lights

The Enteburg infantry was formed in two lines with the McDucks on the left, then de Souris, Elector of Huhnerland Fusiliers, von Fasan's Fusiliers and Electoress Marguerite Fusiliers. The second line had von Hahn brigade on the left withe the Schwansee Guards, Munchausen-Spurhund-Jungen Guards and Schwansee Guards.

The woods on the held the various Enteburg lights including the crack ErbPrinz Pandours.

On the Enteburg rights the ErbPrinz placed his horse upon the heights. He sought to use the woods to his advantage as he knew the opposing forces would not pursue his Hussars into such treacherous terrain.

The battle itself was a seesaw affair with the Burgundians and Enteburg having the best of the Cavalry fight but not before a large whole had appeared in the infantry centre. All three armies where pushed to their break point and after 7 turns of play The Burgundians and the Melchestrian allies both collapsed leaving the Enteburgers controlling the field.

A great game with Victory going to the Good Guys :P
