13 July 2013 -- AAR

Scenario = A British infantry brigade holds a village at a river crossing and farm there mission is to hold until relived by British and Brunswick forces. A French infantry division with a cavalry brigade and additional units.

OOB - French:
1st Infantry Brigade = four line battalions
2nd Infantry Brigade = three line battalions
Cavalry Brigade = Cuirassier regiment and Carabinier regiment
Two foot artillery batteries = 6lb Battery + howitzer, 8lb battery
Chasseurs a Cheval regiment

OOB - Allies:
1st British Infantry = four line battalions
2nd British Infantry = two line battalions and a Highland battalion
British foot artillery = 9lb
Brunswick Infantry = four line battalions and a avantgarde battalion
Brunswick horse artillery = 6lb

The British and French deploy.

The French infantry move to attack, the artillery pound the structures trying to reduce them.

The brigade on the left failed to motivate to charge, so one of the battalions from the right brigade motivates to charge. One consonance was the Chasseurs a Cheval regiment charged unsupported and paid a high price and was force to retire Also we are lucky the Allied reserves have failed to arrive to attempt relief.

The left brigade slowly presses on the attack and the right brigade charges home, at the end the allied reserves arrive.

The Brunswick horse artillery moves aggressively and fires into the brigade assaulting the village and disrupts two battalions, the cavalry being in position protect one bridge crossing moves into action and the Cuirassier regiment forces the horse artillery to react, the cavalry have the initiative but fail motivate to charge and the horse artillery blast Cuirassier regiment forcing them to retreat.

The allied forces move and deploy along the river, but with the two French brigade capturing the village and the French artillery redeployed covering the bridges and the French cavalry in postilion to stop any crossing it was a French Victory.

Vistula Legion

Well I received my boxes of the new Vistula Legion just put out by Warlord Games. They look good, but I did notice some excessive flash on some of the metal heads. Other than that on my first glance over the box that really stood out. Additionally it came without a paper insert, like a Perry box has.

I am planning to paint these up as the First Regiment since each regiment had two battalions.

I think these and my Murawski Poles (which I need more of) will fit in nicely when I get everything together.

I did post some pictures last month of my units in my Order Of Battle (OOB) page, they did not come out as well as I wanted them to, I am working on my camera work hoping to get better.

Moreover, all the little projects are coming along, though maybe not as fast as I would like. School and family does take priority.

Lack of Posts

Hello all,

Well I am busy modeling and painting, But I am unable to post pictures due to a bad camera cable I am now replacing, I tried to make it work, but it needs to be replaced.

I have finished my 6lb French battery. I have ordered a Westfalia Miniatures ammunition cassion to start on my artillery park.

I am almost done on my Carabinier Regiment, but I decided to make it eighteen figures (I can always add more later) and have started on my Cuirassier Regiment (I might make two) all will also be eighteen figures.

Also I have some Paul Hicks Poles on order, I very much look forward to building a Polish Brigade.
