WMMS 2012: Steinkirche Part II

When it came time to start the game, Paul elected to stick with the Imperials and try to correct the loss of the first game, and so I was given command of the Swedes once again. The roll for initial forces for the Swedes saw the Schlammersdorf, Blue and Hepburn infantry regiments turn up.

Schlammersdorf begin their advance, under the watchful eye of Gustavus Adolphus himself

The Swedes advance along the flanks, as the Imperials begin to show up in the camp

The Swedish Blue regiment accompanied by Baner

The Imperial Aldringen regiment take up position in the camp, as Wallenstein gazes on

More Imperial reinforcements - the Loebl (top left) and Jung-Tilly regiment (bottom left) 

The second wave of Swedes - we were lucky to get every unit on by this stage

Schlammersdorf advance under fire from the Aldringen regiment

Tott's Kurassiers advance onto the field, followed by the Swedish Yellow regiment

The Red regiment advance alongside the Upplands cavalry

Aldringen take up position on the edge of the camp board,
while Jung-Tilly advance in support

Schlammersdorf approach the Imperial lines, with the Vastgota cavalry advancing in support

View from the rear of the Swedish lines as the first units approach Imperial lines

View of the approaching Swedes from the Imperial PoV!

The Vastgota cavalry form line to charge, while
Schlammersdorf struggle across the inconvenient shrubbery

Lots of Imperials!

The backlog of Swedish troops mounts up
 (for some reason, they all showed up on the left flank!)

View towards the Imperial centre; Jung-Tilly have formed square ahead of  the Vastgota and
Upplands cavalry, while Schlammersdorf and Aldringen struggle with each other
