Life has been busy, very busy however a spark has been ignited!!!
My buddy Cameron who lives maybe 200-300 metres away has caught the Napoleonic bug (praise be to the lord!!!), His army of choice (for the moment as we all know how these things go) are Austrians. He has bought some older figures from our friend Robert (far to many figures for 1 man!!!) as well as us both buying BH figure from timecast.
I can't tell you how long it has been since I last played Naps although if you look me in the eyes you would know!!! Tonight the planets were in perfect alignment and we were able to have our 1st Naps game (2nd if you count a run through at Roberts). Now I haven't properly read the new GdB rules/book and although Cameron has had my copy for the past few months and due to life commitments neither has he yet, we still wanted to give it a bash. We decided straight out to talk through each process on what we planned to do etc and to basically learn the rules.
All the terrain is rough or donated by friends and you have to trust me that the buildings will come to life in time (the church has a fine destiny planned). Above my Austrian artillery taking there first casualties from the enemy in battle.
My Saxons getting a rare run out along side their Austrian allies.
Cameron's Austrians started to pressure the old church that commands the road networks of the area.
A big thanks to Mai who very kindly brought up some chicken legs and refreshment for our evenings wargaming.
This windmill was bought for me by my brother David, It will be great scenery when finished. The armies are still in place and we will continue to fight on when we have the time.
