Some new additions to the Austrian Collection. Fresh from the Reinforcement by Post chap.
There are more, I will post some images of these in the very near future.
Well here at the Wargames Holiday Centre we were very privileged to host the second General de Brigade weekend. This time however the excitement was generated by a new scale. Imagine 15mm scale fighting across a battlefield designed for 28mm. Nearly half as much space again to manoeuvre in!!
So 25 guys turned up, bringing a host of their 15mm collections along with them as well as terrain, fields, copse and villages! Thousands of excellently painted miniatures arrayed from many nationalities! Italians, Saxons, Poles, Germans, Prussians, Austrians, Russians and even some Swiss!
So without any further delay I bring you a small gallery of some of the images taken over the weekend. HOVER OVER THE IMAGE FOR THE TITLE!
My thanks go to Dave Brown and the rest of the support team that went toward making this a truly superb weekend. The whole look and feel of the battle was brilliant! I am looking forward to the next one in 2013. You can follow more of the GdB exploits an get a lot more photos here on the General de Brigade blog.
Over the last year Dresden has proved to be a very popular battle, with me hosting it no less than three times already! Each time it’s played different tactics are employed and very different results are achieved.
Figures are by Elite Miniatures, painted and tweaked by Doug Mason
So I thought I would give you a taste of the most recent battle, just as a view through the looking glass as it were. Over the next few pictures I will just highlight the action or the unit in view and what it was doing. This will allow me to post up far more images of the figures (as that is what we all want to see….right?)
Just hover over the image for the description.
While the Russian Guard attacks the southern face! Figures by Front Rank and painted by Reinforcements by Post
While still providing something of the thrill of the battle itself.
I do hope you enjoy the images. I will get back to writing battle reports periodically, as time allows.
