Some miles from their main body, a French line infantry regiment with four guns attached is on forage duty and making it's way to a well known grain store. The guns are for added security as the stories of Allied cavalry and especially lancers have been terrifying for the infantrymen. The main armies are now very close and the men know a big fight is coming.
For this hapless regiment their own fight is sooner than they think as Austrian light cavalry have already secured most of the grain from the 'well known grain store' and were about to ride off. It gets worse as the 1st battalion spot lance pennons not too far off...
French forces: 3 battalions line infantry with 4 guns
Austrians: 2 squadrons of lancers
3 squadrons 1st hussars
