Wonderful fun playing a small battle Napoleonics using our favourite General D’Armee rules. Cookie wanted yo blood his newly painted Calpe Saxons and it was an opportunity for me to get the Russians out for the first time in ages.
|You can see the setup with the Saxons endeavouring to get their batteries to high ground|
whilst the forces both refuse the right flanks.
|Using my standard TTS mat, hence the grids.|
|Nice shot of the large Russian 9pdr battery|
|Skirmish lines meet|
|Phil always loves the Saxon contingent of Napoleons German allies having painted them|
many years ago in Minifigs there in pride of place in PW’s collection still
|These Russian Jagers performed superbly during the battle|
|Saxon Garde looking resplendent in their red jackets|
|These poor Saxons really took a hiding from the Russian guns|
We are aiming to play at least one of these a month in 28mm and perhaps another in 15mm just for fun.
