Naturally, all of this went to my head and resulted in a small amount of trash talk. I am making my Volley and Bayonet French up out of largely Airfix figures, as such due to the hunched up nature of the figures, Frank has refered to them as being my Uruk-Hai French. His Army, as always, is beautifully painted and quite shiney.
|The WIP French Horde.
|Another WIP. Airfix
|And divided into to two divisions.
|Airfix French Infantry Officer mounted on Airfix Cowboy horse. figure was acquired second hand with bent arm. I added the horse, gave a repaint, and the now standard GW Devan Mud wash. it's great stuff!
|Nice stuff. Each VB stand is a Brigade, but Frank puts on the Colours of one of the Brigades battalions to make it look pretty.
|I believe these fellows are Guards... But I wouldn't bet on it!
|The British deploy. In one spot. A novel but successful measure.
The table had some terrain put down by Frank. The Urban areas are buildings he has made up for his CD3 Bosnian games.
|Both sides deploy. the French lack room to deploy fully, and this will cost them.
|Very Nice BUAs for all seasons and a variety of periods.
|Great looking Barn, Shed, or windowless Slum. No window tax due here!
|The view down the road to the other town.
|The main street of a no horse town? I love these buildings!
|Look its the British! Lets advance and crush them by throwing both Divisions against one wing!
|This will be successful! Look how many stands are in support of the attack!
|The attack is suboptimal. The French are disordered!
|The Counterattack by the British, and the French get further disordered to rout status, and both Divisions hit their exhaustion point.
|Stands actually eliminated during the game. French Cavalry, Artillery, and Infantry.
