|The French advance on Utitza|
Last Wednesday night Rick and I met at the Vikings Club in Lanyon for a game of Command and Colors Napoleonics. The scenario was part of the Battle of Borodino centred on the defence of the village of Utitza on 7 September 1812. We used Rick's 6mm French and Russians which we're Bacchus figures painted by Reinforcements by Post. Unfortunately most of the photos didn't turn as I forgot to readjust the settings on my camera but a few were OK. In the end we ran out of time with the French on the verge of victory and the Russians grimly hanging on defending the village of Utitza. Thanks to Rick for a fun game with his lovely 6mm armies.
