|KUNERSDORF! Finally on the table. Baron von Münchausen's view from his balloon above the Oder in his escape from besieged Frankfurt.|
|The main Russian position. The Observation Corps on the Mühlberg to the north (top). Prussians appearing from the top.|
|The southerly end of the position. Austrians towards the bottom left. In the bottom left corner is the Wagenburg.|
|Frederick's army approaches the Mühlberg. It's going to get very hot soon.|

Back after a long lay off. Illness and a subsequent loss of my mojo, football watching, spousal and parental responsibilities have all taken their toll on wargaming in Schloß Nundanket. I should get down to the game tonight and hopefully write it up tomorrow.
It took quite a long time to set up the table (3 hours). I took some time to get the dimensions right, using one of the maps from Kronskaf for the overall positions and Duffy (see previous post on Kunersdorf) for the placement of the different troop types. I don't have sufficient Russians for the Observation Corps musketeer regiments so have used Bavarians and Austrians. And I'm a few bases short of Prussian fusileers so have had to use musketeers - must remember this when the game starts.
