Last Wednesday (2)

As promised, some random shots of the game from last week:

1. The castle overlooking the battlefield. The curved stram around it was originally for the Geminde-Au adjoining Aspern village from my Wagram demo game:


2. The massed ranks of the Empire square up against the thin red line on the hill:



3. Two divisons combined intoa mass of men, 15,000 strong to assault the KGL:


4. The British Guards stand firm (Adler figures painted & based by Postman Paul)



5. On the French left a Division of light cavalry and two regiments of Hesse-Darmstadt infantry set off on their march:


6. A more panoramic shot of the battlefield:


7: The Army of Italy commanded by Prince Darren of Newark, take on the Brunswickers but the conflict is bloody and will only be decided by a later flaning manoeuvre by the Italian Royal Guard and a brigade of French light cavalry:



8. The KGL are forced back from their hill, while the Guards get squeezed on the flank:



9. A close up of the men of Hesse-Darmstadt, still in their Seven Years War-style uniforms (Baccus figures, painted by me)

10. A brigade of French light cavalry. Hussars in front [including elite company] and Chasseurs behind. (Baccus & me again)


11. The division of light cavalry played a significant role on the left flank, eventually making the Allied position untenable despite the brave defence:


Back to work tomorrow, but its napoleonics again at the club on Wednesday night!
