Great Northern War - Narva

Battle of Narva with Black Powder rules was fun. Swedes pushed on but their right flank seemed to be a bit slow. Russians were able to shoot the troops on the right flank, this slowed them even more, but in the end they Swedes charged the main citadel. Amazingly Russings managed hold their groud even when Sweden eleties where throving granades. Russians had a lucky 5 x 5+ roll, which halted the Sweden's attack.

On the left flank Sweden elites pushed on even when their support units were not able to come over the walls. There elites where soon surrounded by Russian reserves. The left flank retreated in panic.

Russians to our suprice where able to hold their ground with quite small casualties. They even manger to roll 6 times in a row 6+ to get reserves. A bad day for swedes.

Thank you for the game, fun and fast!
