So for Easter i set out to do a small project. I'm to paint the Imperial Old Guard as it was around 1809. The initial plan is to do the 2nd Division under Dorsenne with two batallions of Chasseurs and grenadiers.
The first three batallions mad ready for painting.
Been toiling in the worksop.
This time i created some modular hills. Each of the middle pieces is aprox. 30 cm wide. good for creatin end of board high ground or a larger ridge in the middle of the board.
In our club AFKS i have started a new campaign. It is the war of 1809 along the Danube. Scenarios are written with a French and a Austrian brief, to simulate some fog of war. If your interested in the scenarios please write me. So far we have played the following battles:
Battle of Teugn-Hausen (draw)
Battle of Abensberg (small Austrian victory but with heavy losses)
Battle of Eggmühl Day 1 and 2 (Marginal French victory)
Planned for the next coming thursdays are:
Battle of Neumarkt
Battle of Aspern Essling
Battle of Wagram.
So far the campaign is progressing along the historial lines.
Austrians being seriously hampered with their bad commanders and Linear Tactics.
