Battle of Wojslawice
Forces loyal to Duke Jerzy were assembled from the many veteran mercenaries having returned from the 30 Years War.
Baron Konrad pressed on from the Percussion Hills into the headwaters of the Brass River.
A first encounter between the Loyalists and the Absolutists was about to take place at the sleepy cross-road of Wojslawice.
Approaching was the vanguard of the Absolutionist Army, paid for by the Kardinaly.
Baron's (pretender) Royalist (most colorful!) Forces:
Adv Guard Commander = General
Field (that cannot move) Gun
Brigadier with 4 Foot Bn
Italian Bn = Veteran
Galician Bn = Trained
Absolutist Bn = Raw
Owijac-Drewna Bn = Raw
Brigadier with 2 Pistols Horse Troop (this would be the 'bigger' single force troop?) = Raw
then arriving after battle start
One Brigadier Commands:
2 Light (movable) guns
2 Foot Bn
Italian Impressed Bn = Raw
Galician Impressed Bn = Raw
