Last week I had the pleasure of attending The Hinton Hut to play a four handed Napoleonic wargame hosted by Ian using his fantastic collection of 20mm Hinton Hunt figures. For a full break down of the battle, including the infamous "typo", Ian has posted an excellent 3 part breakdown of the battle here.
For my part I will post a few pictures to give a flavour of the days events.
|The Guards - who secured my first victory points.|
|Ian's Prussians advancing neatly in support on my left.|
|And those pesky French-types determined to spoil our strategy.|
|The Young Guard marching to the base of the hill before marching back again. A French version of The Hokey-Cokey perhaps?|
|My rather rash decision to buy some time slowing the Austrian advance resulting in a severe bloody nose for the British Light Dragoons.|
|And all the while the Emperor and his Old Guard sat still and watched!|
Just to thank Ian, Tony and Nigel for a fantastic game and the first class company. Plus Mrs Stryker for keeping us all fed and watered the whole day!
