Very nice looking figures!

I can hardly wait to hear how they perform on the battlefield.

All the best,

Cheers Bob! We may not be playing much but I'm still keeping an eye on other blogs. Loved your article on the American Heritage games. We've got Skirmish by MB which is the American War of Independence game. A cracking game it is too. I think I got it as a present in the late 70's, it's still in good order & Jack & Amy love playing it.

Keep up the good work mate.

So could you just about get away with Russian Napoleonics for this period or would that be a step too far.

MrFarrow2U said...

Now then Chris

Yes mate I believe you could, for the infantry regiments it's a matter of getting the forage cap figures. The Dragoons, Cossacks, Cuirassieras then yes.

It's a nice little period to game.

Cheers
MrF

Hi guys
Do you have your army lists for the Crimean war as I have got 2 x 12 stand armies ready to go and haven't gamed the war before I was told that I can use HOTT....Makes sense but prefer to see your lists to be honest cheers heath

Hello Heath. Thanks for the nice comments. We used an article from Wargames illustrated number 101. I put the page on our Calamita Bay Scenario listed here on on the blog==

It's got what you are looking for & will get you gaming. Wargames Illustrated ran a series of articles for DBA rules/army lists relating to different periods, over a few years.

All the Best & let me know how your games goes!

If I remember, the Crimea War Rules worked well in the few games we played.

Hi super nice Mini's:) hey may I ask where you got the Navy guy

Hello Greyson

Thank you for the nice comment. If it's the Naval Infantry you are referring to, then they are Minifigs Prussian Landwher with the peaks of their caps removed.

All the Best
MrF
