A Borodino taster...

So we did it!

We survived Borodino - again.

My third attempt at this meat grinder is over - infact we finished it a while ago! So exhausting was it that I haven't been able to do much wargaming related stuff since beyond play our usual weekly game, too much of a good thing?

I plan to write a post about the design of the two games which comprised this blood bath and two battle reports; one of the northern sector (see below) comprising Borodino & the Grand Redoudt, and secondly the southern sector with fighting around Utitsa & The Fleches. Much went well but there were things I would do differently next time. There are hundreds of piccies to edit so it may take sometime to do this. The players are even threatening to contribute some of their own thoughts; didn't know they had them frankly!!!

I'll leave you with this taster of the first game - i.e. half of it.  

The Northern sector with Borodino roughly centre stage and the Grand Redoubt a little further back. This looks like we're approaching the end of day one as the ranks have been thinned out a little and Junot has yet to arrive.  
Catch up soon, best  wishes
