Game Over

The opposition has gone and the room is left in piece. The table is 14'x 6' which is a good size to host many different games. I have placed some great prints around the walls to make it more interesting and store all my painted armies in plastic storgae boxes under the table.

General de Brigade

Today i played a General de Brigade game with a mate Mark Piper his son Rob, my brother Ken, and my oldest son James. It was a British Portugese V French game of around 16 units per side. We have elected to use a ratio of 1:40 so an average battalion is 16 figures strong. The scenario was a simple on with The British Allied forces needing to hold the river crossing and fortified farm. The French started with great success forcing the Highlaanders our of the farmn surprisingly in the first round of combat helped by a really bad dice role from Mark. French success continued pretty much through the whole game which ended with the colapse of the British right flank. The rules were great and worked really well using the firing charts from Die Kriegskunst the SYW variant of General de Brigade which we also like to use.

Prince George Regiment

Finally i have finished the Prince George Regiment of the Danish Army for the WSS period. Its a 20 Figure Battalion. The First Battalion of all Danish Regiments had the Grenadiers attached which is why i have added 4 grenadier figures to the 1st Battalion. The second battalion will be at the normal 16 figures which i think is a good average working on a 1:40 ratio. These are the same figures and basic painting standard that we are offering in our Army starter deals on offer through our web site.

3 new Supply Wagons

As we are always looking at new items i recently can across these three supply wagons which i thought are worth adding to our 28mm accessories section in our web store. They can be supplied with either oxen, bullocks, or horses
