Following the well received game we put on at Salute – we finally got to play the Ligny game ourselves using the beautiful scenery that Martin built with some help from Gary and David.
The French plan was to attack on both flanks – holding the Prussian wings in place and stopping significant re-inforcement of the town. This is exactly how it played out.
The Prussians put up a good fight but the superior class of the French troops ground their way through the village and without any Prussian troop movement from either flank to help support the French plan worked as intended.
A terrific game last weekend at the Wargames Holiday Centre re-fighting the battle of Austerlitz. Result was a resounding French victory (again). Hope you enjoy the pictures which give a feel for the action.
Rules were, of course, General d’Armee – with Mr Brown taking the Allied left flank.
A big thank you to everyone that took part – wargaming at its very best.
A highly enjoyable game at the Essex Warriors venue in Writtle at the weekend with a good turn out of LSF players (and friends) enjoying a Quatre Bras scenario presented by David Brown and using his General d’Armee rules.
In the end the French attack was stopped before it could reach the crossroad – we just couldn’t get there quick enough!
Quatre Bras in full swing, the French front line is moving up to engage the initial Allied formations of Brunswick and Bylandt.
Gemioncourt falls to the French,
Lancers move up the threaten the Nassuers.
Picton arrives to shore up the beleaguered Allies!
They are coming on in the same old style!
The Nassuers are pushed back!
A brave Brunswick general leads forward his skirmishers!
This will include a couple of GdA games (one on Waterloo day!) and a Pickett’s charge game.
WW2 games are likely to be Chain of Command unless Dave can get his new WW2 rules finished by the end of the year.
Everyone welcome – but please let us know if you are interested so we have an idea of numbers.
