Normal Service Is Resumed - Or Back To O.S. SYW.

After my deviation into killing Zombies (damned hard as well it was, played 6 games and did not win one !) I am returning to a 40mm SYW  game , the French column is moving a mule train carrying the pay chest for the local garrison . It is protected by 3 Companies of the Regiment Du Roi , a Company of the Chasseurs De Sombreuil and the Hussars Bercheny. They have to reach the village in the top left hand corner of the above photo . The Allies have dispatched a raiding force of cavalry and light infantry to capture the mule train.
The precious bullion on mule back carefully guarded .
 Voltaire and his faithful manservant 'Wee Jocky' are accompanying the column . Here he is lecturing his servant on the correct method of moving through enemy country.
However the Prussian 'Black' Hussars have other ideas !. Too be continued ......


  1. Aaaah, that's better. Sanity.

  2. I do love the look of the terrain, sir.

  3. I agree with Jeff the figures and terrain look great together.
