This report is a little lite on text but features some pretty piccies with captions to illuminate the action, hope you like it.
|Saxon battalions and baggage train, This is an excellent model so I'll get some close ups for you, the bull is ace.|
Westphalian Cuirassiers in support.
|Saxon staff officers with a massive barrel of schnapps. Old Foundry models dwarfed by the newer Perry sculpts.|
|Saxon light cavalry regiment screening the Saxon division. Perry models painted by Saxon Tony!|
Good long view down the table from the plateau.
|Cossacks screen the allied centre and left - pretty much all they are good for!|
|The allied centre thus screened! Strelitz moves forward with his light cavalry brigade.|
|The centre of the allied main body looking very orderly, Yorck and Blucher centre left.|
|Here we see the most sedate cavalry action of the Napoleonic wars, even the Saxon brigadier has dismounted!|
The Russians charged against the faltering conscripts caught at the halt and only just won, pathetic.
Both retired exhausted.
|Brigade Horn marches onto the main table - straight up the road with malicious intent, LDW cavalry cover the flank.|
Nuns get some gardening done in the church yard, unless they're digging fresh graves...
|French Tony / Napoleon and staff occupy a grassy knoll from which to view proceedings.|
Elements of Old and Middle Guard arrive.
Perry models superbly painted by French Tony.
|The Bavarian battery deploys as the French conscripts go into square for reasons which will soon become apparent... |
As yet there is nothing behind these two small brigades, watch that space.
|Russian Grenadiers march on in splendid fashion! Each battalion is proceeded by massed drummers!|
These serve no game function but look fantastic, note Pavlovs on the right, mitres and all.
These are Foundry models from Russian Tony's collection - brilliant stuff.
That closes off this update. We are have just finished turn 13 on week four so I have lots more for you to come. I just moved house so blogging isn't a big priority right now although gaming hasn't stopped - war waits for no man! Catch up soon I hope, best wishes, Jeremy
