The Battle of Oberbratwurst

The opposing armies are starting to move toward each other somewhere in Bavaria near the city of Oberbratwurst. Yep, it's 1704 and the War of Spanish Succession is in full swing. The Grand Alliance has finished deploying while the Bavarians and French are still formulating their battle plan. The Anglo-Dutch forces will be commanded by myself, while the Imperial Army, consisting of the Austrians, Hesse and Denmark will be commanded by Honorable Son #4.



The French will be commanded by Honorable Son #2 and the Bavarian Army will be commanded by Honorable Son #3.



Here is the order of battle for the French and Bavarians using Volley and Bayonet:
