|A rather atmospheric shot of the Regimental "Smithy" getting a workout on the field. This is a fetching vignette |
piece from the Napoleonic French range from Perry Miniatures. Very clever lads old Michael and Alan.
Whilst waiting for the next day where Phil and I can rendezvous and recommence hostilities I though that it would be the perfect opportunity to add a few things. Now before you assume the worse and think that by "add" I may sneak and additional British brigade or two on, shame on you...well what about a battery?
Do you think Cookie would notice? Bloody oath he would. Anyway...
I do always like games where there is just the right amount of paraphernalia on the table. I love seeing batteries with limber teams and ammunition cassions in trail. I think you would have to go a long way to see better than Kevin and Chris work old "Not Just Old School Wargaming" as well as the wonderful work Barry Hilton has done on his Empire to Republic games at the League of Augsburg with the artillery park looking simply sensational.

This is the first time I have had this particular vignette on the field. It is from the Perry Miniatures range and I think its a superb piece of design and sculpting. It has nestled in very well onto the field and will remain for the duration of the battle.
I am also very happy to report that my promise to have my French line artillery limbers up and running has been achieved. A few photos of them next time.
