Game off! Some new stuff.
Well, John the Red was supposed to be coming up today for a French Revolutionary War game set in Flanders in 1794, but I had to cancel as I could barely stand up let alone get downstairs and walk around or finish setting up the figures this morning. John was very understanding though. I was really looking forward to pitting my Austrians and British against the French as well as getting another new windmill on the table. I had even managed to finally base up a squadron of Austrian hussars and an assortment of French emigre units in preparation for the game. Some pictures for your delectation.....
My new windmill. I do like it but it is a little large to do anything other than sit in a corner and add to the atmosphere of the battle.
Elite Miniatures Austrian hussars from their collectors' range. I have another dozen to base up to complete the regiment, as well as two squadrons painted as the Legion Rohan hussars. I don't know what it is but I suddenly had a 'thing' about emigre units.
Legion Damas - Chasseurs.A very pretty unit of dubious value on the table.
The Legion Damas fusiliers. The figures are Casting Room Miniatures 1806 Saxons but they do the trick. They were in a sale too so not too expensive. I need to give them a flag though.
Another French telegraph station. I just need to paint up some telegraphists now. Hummmmm?
Armee de Bourbon Cavalerie de Noble. (something like that). I had some spare Trent Austrian dragoons so.....
My last Russian line infantry units, two battalions of Regiment Apcheron
