In this struggle five Swedish regiments were trying to break an Imperial defense line. The ground was flat with a forest on the Swedish right and two hills on the defenders' side.
Both forces had five regiments of foot and two commanders. The Swedes had one unit classified as elite and two regimental guns while the Imperials had a heavy gun and a four-stand unit instead of the usual three. The Imperials also stood in a squarish formation, which, like the pike stand, allowed shooting in all directions with a reduced die roll.
Army characteristics: the Swedes' opening salvo received a +2 on short distance instead of +1 while the Imperials could use a free 'maneuver' order each turn.
