Wherein the army of the Burgravate of Nabstria under General Hieronymous von Rumpfler encounters the forces of the Sanjak of Zenta, commanded by Captain-General Taras Bulbous.
The Nabstrian army is quickly mobilised, a process that merely requires setting fire to about four of the local taverns. Soon, the nine regiments of regular foot, three regiments of regular horse, two batteries, and two regiments of irregulars are placed into column of march. General von Rumpfler hurries the Nabstrian forces forwards, aiming to catch the invaders as near to the River Strudel as possible.
Surprisingly he succeeds in out-scouting his Zentan adversary, and he decides to take up a defensive position on open ground near the village of Grosse Katzick.
(Below) Rumpfler deploys eight regiments of his regular infantry into two lines, his pair of batteries entrenched and interspersed amongst the front ranks of troops. The right-most portion of his foot will also benefit from being on a hill.

His left wing (below) is anchored on a wood, and is held by one of his regiments of irregulars.
