Today, we put together all of the units to make up the Austrian Advanced Guard Division under the command of GM Nordman ... and see how they fit together on the battlefield.
|Whats in the box ? A pretty huge Division as Divisions go. A handful of everything in here makes this a very strong force to confront.
|A massive numberof guns, and some large blocks of infantry regiments ... plus a large wing of cavalry, and some specialist light troops as well.
|Arrayed on the battlefield, the deployment area of this unit is once again constrained by the command radius .. 30cm or just over a scale 1km for 'functional' command radius. Means that deployment is neccessarily tight across the whole frontage.
|View from the commander's position, looking to the right of the Division. Although the Division is spread out over a 2km frontage, there remains a good deal of depth to this deployment.
|The Division offers quite a few small units of specialist light troops that can be deployed to hold various objectives. Here the 13th Grenzers are assigned the farmyard which anchors the left flank of the Division.
|Divisional command stand for Nordman, with his Hussar signaller.
|Massed medium foot batteries in the center.
|An eagle's eye view of the deployment, showing the depth of the reserves.
