Well Tuesday came and so did the club meet, 7 oclock armed with the 2 armies and the new HExonII terrain, rich and I set off for a battle.
Rich has played most periods but looked at the funny Napoleonics figures and decided to just charge with his Cuirrasiers and Dragoons.... we adjusted the musket fire to a better in game range and feel, The charges came in and did some damage, then got shot off.... then my white army infantry advanced, with my cavalry into the Garde Korps of the blue army and fell apart, final score was 10 points to the blues and 7 to the whites, the game had 10 infantry, 3 skirmisher and 3 artillery per side, and 8 cavalry per side, took around 2 hours to fight and felt good, whether it was historical i dont know..... Rich now wants to buy some Scots Greys and Imperial Guard to start building up a waterloo game in 10mm....
MUST look up how battle actually evolved and if this could fit into the mould.
