Here are some picts from our last fictional napoleonic game scenario within our periodical THS meetings:

"THE BATTLE AT BÄRNBACH - 1813"

The Figures are most from Calpe, Perrys, Victrix, Warlord Games etc. and from several members of our team.
We use the Black Powder Rules from Warlord Games and have so much fun with it - enjoy:

The Westfalians starts her artillery cannonade.
(All artillery figures are my own conversions from Perry and Victrix plastics, except the guns)







Toward the enemy. Westphalian troops with light infantry as skirmish screen at their front.











The prussian positions at the village called "Bärnbach".




Pommersche Landwehr.


Silesian Landwehr and prussian reserve troops; Freiwillige Jäger as skirmshers at the front.


The prussian left wing protected by poor silesian Militia.


The french cavalry arrives the battlefield.







SURPRISE ... SURPRISE ... a light cavalry brigade charge the french-westfalian right flank.






The charge stops the french-westphalian ... but only FOR THIS GAME ...  Angry

Very pretty eye candy

Pity I can`t get BP of the ground at my club, the gamers I play with are to quickly tempted in going overboard on options, making `created army lists` a bit of a necessity with some  Cry

looks like a fun game and nice minis too - as Phil said "a proper" wargame.

Tomsche - if you can't get your club to play BP the way you want why not go solo in a smaller scale? I played a lot of ACW using BP last year and the command mechanism makes for a very good solo game.

Very nice collection! Fantastic cavalry!

If anything is going to inspire me to add to the 36 Perry plastic Nappies I've managed to paint it's those picks!
