Steffen Haug and I concluded our first game from Campaign Marengo. We were playing the 094. The Battle of Casteggio-Montebello scenario. While Steffen lost (Major Victory for me) I chose to take a Draw as the scenario is lacking 10 turns.

About turn 19 or 20 Steffen broke through in the middle, crossed the creek at Casteggio, and captured two of my gun sections! Bold move and frankly I felt that it was a sorry defense on my part.

I suggest that until the first update is out that members abstain from playing this scenario and the variant as well.

For the next update I plan on changing the variant to have the FRENCH reinforcements arrive earlier and the Austrian reinforcements arrive at the historical time. The name of the scenario will be 096. Casteggio-Montebello: Victor Arrives Earlier or something like that. Also the Austrians will be fixed on their right flank. Ott's force there was poised to threaten Lannes left flank so the French commander attacked up the hill and eventually was able to overcome the Austrian defense.

French players: realize that your side doesn't have many troops to begin the game with. You are going to have to wait for Victor to show up or suffer a lot of losses as the Austrians are pouring onto the field very soon after the battle begins.
