Boridino 1812 28mm (photo heavy)

News just in ........
The French have been kicked out ....
Moscow has been saved
All hail our Lady of Smolensk......................

Well on Saturday we fought a vicious battle just out side the gates of Moscow
the game concentrated on the Russian Fletches and I would not have been an Russian Atillerymen

The French had turn 1 and straight away attacked the Fletches to remove those nasty guns having some success on left and right but suffering severe casualties as the Russian fought to stop losing their guns.

The with the prodding of the Priest and the unveiling of the Holy Icon the Russians counter attacked pushing away the vile French troops all along the line - the came an opening in the Line from the huge barrage that the French guns laid down and 2 French cavalry attacked and the all except I gun Battery lay dead or badly damaged.

But hope was not lost for again the priest inspired their troops and mayhem in the French lines as they were ether thrown back or stopped in their tracks-- but many had fallen

in the end it was a draw with the French finally pushing forward but in not enough numbers.

The Cowards award goes to a certain group of French Hussars that went into the forest but got lost.

Hi Fanai,

Really great looking game, very nice collection of figures there.

What rules did you use for this?

Cheers

Thanks CD - yes Brad and I worked very hard to bring a part collection up to both sides

We use a modified fire and fury rules "Brigade" -works well for such a large game
and most important gives all players lots to do and tight close games

(and lots of Laughter) we are not chess players
