|The initial deployments|
Steve has some lovely new figures added to his collection and I spent my 100pt on the following:
9 Regular infantry, 3 Regular cavalry, 4 Artillery, 2 Elite upgrades (both inf), Oblique and Artillery Academy.
Steve chose the following force:
8 Regular infantry, 2 Conscript infantry, 4 Regular cavalry, 3 Artillery, 2 Elite upgrades ( 1 inf, 1 cav), Cavaliers.
|Something wrong with my guns!|
We had a large 8ft x 6ft table but by the time we had placed the terrain, it was pretty much decided that we would be fighting in the 4ft wide corridor to my right.
|The infantry come to blows|
Time to commit the infantry then.
Soon both lines were blasting away at each other, but the volleys were hardly telling on each of us - there something wrong with our damned powder today. Eventually we went at each other with the bayonets and Steve had the upper hand, before we had even been through the card deck once my Army Morale was reduced to zero and I was done for!
I had made one move with my cavalry, Steve had not moved his at all!
The figures are all Steves, 40mm semi-flats cast from Prince August (and other moulds) and painted by Steve. Here are some more pics from the game!
