Battle of Saalfeld
The brillant affaire of Marshal Lannes at Saalfeld against Prince Louis of Prussia who found his death in a final charge trying to save the day and let his trrops to retire to Schwarza bridge. The usual detailed map and order of battle will offer the opportunity to recreate this minor engagement of the 1806 campaign that showed the decisive supremacy of the french tactics over the old linear style of the prussians.

3) Fixed penalty to running infantry in exhausted status
4) Increased penalty to recent/extended casualties as well for army casualties
5) Charge bonus +3 points
6) Slight wider artillery crew profile

As a final remark, with this extensively reworked and expanded version of NE mod we will be trying to re-launch HB gaming.
