Napoleonic game due on the 18th September.

Some of the terrain so far…

I think the scenario will involve an initial skirmish already in progress on move 1 comprising a brigade on each side, with re-enforcements arriving quickly. Either centred around the village or farm complex.

All the buildings (except the church which is a 1/72 scale plastic model from Faller and sits brilliantly with the other models) and windmill were bought from those chaps in Germany who did the Crobern 1813 expo. They sold these delightful models for a while but I don't think you can get them anymore, which is a pity.

Hay stacks were home made.

The usual door mat! (cut up)

The farm complex will be one objective.

Control of the bridge will be another objective.

Some hedges will be added to the village which will be another objective, but I am keen not to limit movement too much.

The Prussian and Austrian limbers from Art Miniaturen are more or less finished so likely to feature rather than the Russians, whose horses and riders have yet to be done. The traces on the Austrian limbers took 4 hours to do! (only 6 limbers)

Looks like we will have 7 or 8 attendees which is good news.

More photos to follow.


  1. I didn't know they did a windmill or I would have bought 1. Lovely terrain Francis.
