The Saturday Before, I went to Scott's place to try my newly painted Muscovites for By Fire and the Sword, of which here are some pics:
We had a lot of fun! I discovered that the Muscovite play well in numbers, and while they are not particularly good individually, as a massed group, specially under cover, can be pretty tough to crack. The hero of the day was my light artillery.
Last Thursday as a group at Huzzah Hobbies we played Muskets and Tomahawks and it was a great quick game. That game is a lot of fun and plays fast, which is a great plus for me. Can't wait until I can run a demo of land of the Free.
The previous weekend I played Blucher with Frank (you can check his battle rep on his blog), and I played with my French against his Prussians. We played 300 points and I Included Napoleon on my list and he included Blucher, because of this each we were pretty tough to crack, so we ended up having a classic long hard game that was a lot of fun and very satisfying. Definitely Blucher, for the organizational level for which is written, is a great game!
Besides this I have been mostly working on my Rhodesian force and force scenarios and I started painting a set of coureurs de Bois for Muskets and Tomahawks as well as some Gauls/Britons/Dacians for ADLG.
Lots of gaming going on and lots of Projects getting done, lets see what the summer brings.
By the way Check Scott's Blog and Frank's Blog (they are listed on my list of blogs on this page) they have reports and pictures of the games we played together.....
