I was away at the weekend at Kirriemuir in Angus for a Retreat from Moscow Napoleonic event..The weather was very appropriate as Kirriemuir was covered in frost for the game.. Over the two days 12 gamers attended from the LOGW. All the scenarios were developed by young Charlie Grant. The figures were supplied by various members of the group and Steve Rimmer, Dale Smith and Peter Nicholson supplied the vast bulk of the terrain. The white sheets were newly ironed by Charlie.
|A Saturday scenario - French blow bridge abandoning the brave Neapolitan rearguard!|
|A Saturday scenario - French allies emerge early morning from their bivouacs in a village|
|A retreating French column|
|Charles Grant Snr positioning his French facing my Jaeger column|
It was an enjoyable weekend and the rules adapted from the simple ACW rules developed by Kevin Calder worked well and were easily picked up by all the players. My thanks to Charlie who acted as the hard working rules umpire.
My thanks to all those who have got me up to 350,000 views
