Another day, another game of solo DBN. DBN are perfect for my solo gaming now that I have retired. Today I am doing Sacile.
For this game I gave both C in C a -1 on their Cap dice. Each side has a sub commanders a -2 on their Caps dice. This reflected the below average command capability of Eugene and Archduke John. This hindered the French most as at critical moments they often only had 1 Cap to play with. The French were further hampered by the numerous streams which bisected the position and are treated as bad going.
The French are the attackers with Austrian defence based on 3 villages (Non linear fortifications in DBN terms). Each village captured by the French counted as an Austrian unit destroyed. The French have 19 units and the Austrian 17 units. Victory goes to the side that eliminates 8 enemy units.
The set up as seen from the Austrian side. The Austrians are set up in defensive positions with their Light Infantry garrissioning the 3 villages. The bulk of their cavalry is on their left. The French have concentrated on their left and centre and plan to attack the 2 villages in this sector before the Austrians are able to redeploy to meet the threat
