Frischermont is a Map in Blood & Iron.

Summary

Frischermont is a small fort in the middle of a large grass field. In this map, the Duchy of Nassau is pitted against France. This map supports neither cavalry or artillery.

Wikipedia Info

In 1705 the Châteaux was for a time the headquarters of the Duke of Marlborough. While at Frischermont Marlborough wrote that the escarpment of Mont-Saint-Jean would be a good place to defend Brussels if it was attacked from the south.

At the start of the Battle of Waterloo on 18 June 1815, it belonged to Monsieur Beaulieu, and it was garrisoned by troops of the 28th Regiment, Orange-Nassau (Regiment Oranje-Nassau No. 28) under the command of Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Weimar. It was here at 10:30 that as a French patrol drove back Dutch pickets the first fighting of the day took place.

Landscape

The ground around the fort is mostly flat with a few trees, which can be used as cover. The fort itself has only a few rooms that are generally small with a somewhat large courtyard in the middle.

Tips and Tricks

  • The courtyard in the middle is an extremely dangerous area due to the lethal power of any gun at close range. The compact rooms allow for officers to kill you with their pistol. Getting ambushed is also common.
  • Use the trees for cover. However, don't overestimate the range and accuracy of muskets and rifles. Getting hit, much less killed by them from across the map is uncommon.
