First Meeting for 2009

Postby Cardinal Biggles » Mon Jan 05, 2009 1:30 pm

Planned so far is Torgau Redux With Akula and Phantom reprising their role as Fredericks finest..with my Kopf-Schlagers doing service as the Reichsarmee..Comitiatus, you in with what you have..well at least one unit..Julius Caesar , your Hessians would be helpful on one side or the other.. Pz Ferdinand , blood the Swedes as Reichs armee substitures?

Pz Ferdinand is going to send me the setup, or do you still have it? and you and Akula can reprise your roles..The Pz. says that there should be more Reichsarmee than in his version, especially if it is Might & Reason..

that is the other battle of Torgau, a bitter nastier and much more bloodier affair, much much nastier, especially if you were a Prussian Grenadier..something like 5 out of 6 were casualties..

Prussian types?.....does include allies?....if so I will bring the boys.

Also need some SYW British Infantry painted (some of Mick's figures....I think they are dickson) need to pad out an existing unit you originally painted.

A bit tardy in getting back..no I don't have the setup from the last game.

Transferring to M&R would probably only see 4 Bigades of Prussian Inf with 2 Brigades of Cav and 1 gun (if that).
The Reichsarmee would probably have 6-7 brigades of Inf and 3 brigades of cav

or a straight 0ne unit for one unit...why not ? i think we have the figures and actually the narrow frontage of an M& R Brigade would fit the terrain a bit easier..

Only one what sort of foul heresy is this! My gawd man you need 2 at least 2 preferably....

I have enough to round out the rest, 3 cuirassier, 3 dragoon, 2 grenadier, 2 fusilier, 3 foot plus whatever the good Kardinal has for me.

If my reading of hussars in M&R is any guide, I wouldn't be so enthusiastic.

yes the bluebums have uber prussian hussars, the ones akula owns may have to pretend to be austrian which isn't quite so good..
