New Horse and Musket rules: Snow game 3 Skane War 1676

I had a hankering to put on a Skane War scenario after seeing Soren and Michael's wonderful efforts coming out of Stockholm.

5 Danish units on left, 3 + Swedish units on the right
This scenario is set sometime around the period of the Battle of Lund in the winter of 1676. The Swedish and Danish forces meet on a relatively open field with the Danish infantry holding some high ground and the Swedish infantry deployed around a small Skane village.

Aggressive Danes - Jyske Horse smash into Abo 
Dave played the Swedes and I played the Danes.The unexpected definitely happened in this game! First card turned was the Danish Lifeguards and I decided to attack the Smalands cavalry who I expected to win. On the other flank my Jyske Cavalry quickly closed with the Abo as I tried to isolate the Swedish infantry and destroy then with my superior musketry.

Danish Lifeguards absorb the shock of Smalands charge

Smalands got the drop on the Lifeguards whilst Jyske beat Abo to the charge. In a strange reversal of fortune the Lifeguards weathered the onslaught and began a massacre of Smalands whilst Abo stopped Jyske and eventually beat them back but did not rout them. Within a few turns the Swedish infantry were isolated with enemy cavalry on both flanks ready to turn inwards to sweep them away.

The Lifeguards obliterate Smalands in a deadly melee
Dave had to attack. The large Halsinge regiment advanced against Regiment Funen but Uppland had to stop and face left to avoid being taken in the flank by the Lifeguard.

My Danish Foot Guards began a repositioning exercise to try and bring their significant fire power to bear  against Halsinge but it was all over before they could get into action.

Enemy Horse on borh flanks - the Swedish infantry fight to survive!
Uppland beat back the Lifeguard of Horse but in doing so were written down to nothing. Funen took on Halsinge and bested them during a sharp close combat.

Very soon the Swedish force was all but destroyed and the Danes still had Funen, the unblooded Foot Guards and around half of the Jyske Horse left intact.

A sharp and decisive Danish victory!
