More Toy Soldier Wargaming.

 The French advance. Being outnumbered I let the French move twice before bringing on the Germans.
 The Germans arrive on the field.
 The French form a firing line.
 And the artillery deployed.
 At long range (36" +) the French cannon fires with effect.
 The Germans press on, manhandling their cannon. ( I ain't got no teams yet)
 The German Uhlans boldly advance.
 Long range German rifle fire kills a French sergeant.
 But the French cannon replies with devastating accuracy.
 The other Germans are in dead ground.
 As are the Uhlans.
 They shelter behind the hill. Mmmm...54mm's don't exactly fit behind said hill!.
 After immense labour the German gun is deployed and shoots at that pesky French cannon.
 10 dice, 5 or 6 to hit. Oh dear...
 The French cannon returns fire - 4 hits!.
 Oh dear...
 The Uhlans take a chance ( random movement can be tricky ) and charge the skulking Zouaves.
 The German infantry break cover.
 Despite defending the hedge the Zouaves are killed.
The French form a firing line but only manage to kill the bugler.
 The Uhlans charge.
 The other French company advance to take on the German infantry.
 Those lances are deadly.
 The French cannon is still taking a toll.
 A ferocious melee.
 An Uhlan gets killed by two Zouaves.
 But they are soon outnumbered.
 It can only end one way.
 Close fighting.
 The Uhlans charge the pesky French gun.
 And the Zouaves attack the Germans.
 Tough fighters those Zouaves !.
 It's curtains for the gunners, though.

A great game, an honourable draw I reckon.
Next up. French Lancers...
