Last Wednesday night Rick and I met at the Vikings Club for a game of Command and Colors Napoleonics with his lovely 6mm French and Russians. The scenario was the Battle of Montmirail fought on 11 February 1814. Rick commanded the Russians while I commanded the French. It was a closely fought game with Russians overwhelming the French left flank. In the end the French were able to sneak a close 6 to 4 victory, mainly in the centre, rather than rolling up the Russian left flank as it happened in the actual battle. Thanks to Rick for a fun game.

  3. That's a great looking game Cyrus!

  4. Great looking game and figures, Mike. I've recently down-sized my Napoleonic collection, but kept all my Victrix and Perrys :) Hope to have them on the table again someday.

  5. Thanks Dean, hope to see some game reports with your Napoleonics, you have a great collection. I have a heap of 28mm Peninsular War unpainted, hope to work on these for Sharp Practice 2.
