|Sketch map of the battlefield - south is at the top|
For the French, Colonel Marquis garrisoned Regensburg with the 4 battalions of the 2nd regiment of the line. Teste's division (8 battalions and a regiment of light cavalry), would arrive at point C in three moves and Marchand's division (6 battalions), together with a division of light cavalry at point B some time after move 10 (dependent on a die roll). The Austrians knew that French reinforcements were on their way, but not which road they would take. For both sides the objective was to take and hold the town and its vital bridge.

Davout saw the line of stragglers head north. Although the day seemed to have been won by the Austrians, he could still salvage something by recapturing the southern part of the town. Holding that would deny the Austrians north of the river access to the decisive area of operations south of the river. Another courier was sent to Teste with orders to attack the southern side of the town at once, before the defence could be organised.

A fairly close run thing, but in the final analysis perhaps I gave the French too much cavalry, though Steve achieved a 100% record in losing every cavalry melee, even though initially he had the advantage of numbers. This severely hampered Koblos' attempt to oppose Teste's advance. Also Steve's luck deserted him in the die rolls for the arrival of his reinforcements. There was only a 1 in 6 chance that Koblos would arrive later than Teste and that is what happened. Also Hessen-Homburg arrived on time, but a long way from the town, (again when the odds favoured an entry close to Regensburg. This deprived Koblos of support for a vital couple of moves.
