Bamberg 9th March 1632

Enjoy the photos another 95 of these are on the website to feast your eyes on.

cheers and keep wargaming the hobby...malc the manc.

The arrival of the Catholic forces seemed to undermine Horns confidence
in the Bamberg position.He positioned his newly raised Solms infantry in
the inadequate earthworks with cavalry screen out front with the majority
of his cavalry waiting on the left flank.Horn planned to let his new recruits
take the brunt of the attack while placing his more experienced forces on the
safer side of the river and sending his baggage and the majority to the rear.

Earthworks were not fully constructed and are classed as soft cover

Objective - For the Catholics to cross the bridge and capture the town
the Swedish force was to defend.

No mate, I belong to a loose confederation of disreputable gamers who meet once a week, maybe twice, for lengthy games, a wag of the chin, poor die rolling and mercillous jibing all in bonne espirit of course. :wink:

I'm quite impressed in the use of normal greys etc for the blackened armour, it is a good choice and works much better than trying to incorporate dark steal and metallics. All the figures pop off the table rather than sink into the background, good example of going that shade or two brighter in the highlights, works well with the period. :)

Very nice nevermore, and the painting is wonderful, perfect for table top viewing IMHO. Very pretty.
