Notes on Game
Although both sides have 5 casualties each from the previous battle, the effect is different on each corps.
2nd Prussian corps has two cavalry casualties, and their brigade is a liability. The rest of their casualties are one to each of three brigades. This is a disadvantage, but manageable.
IV French corps has two infantry brigades with two casualties and another brigade with one casualty. The former are a liability. If they receive one more casualty, or have to test morale, they are likely to fail.
Reynier is trying to bring his full strength brigades to attack the town; these are one infantry brigade, the cavalry and the artillery. He will use the remainder of the corps to pin the enemy.
His first step is to multi move his artillery within range of the town by keeping them more than 16” from the nearest enemy.
