200 Years ago today...

Post by Mike the Pike » Fri Jun 22, 2012 9:46 am

In honour of the 200th Anniversary of the beginning of Napoleon's invasion of Russia, give or take a couple of days, I thought I would reveal what exactly I have been up to while stuck 'rigidly' in my Spevna stance.

Against my better judgement I have just purchased a fully painted Napoleonic Russian Army off Ebay. It cost a bloody fortune but at least I can get into Black Powder right away. I will also be investing in some Froggies at some stage too, but for now.....

URRAH! ZA RODINU!

Good work sir! May they have many cucumber sandwiches at dawn before them. It's a great game so hats off for getting involved. I'll be happy to have Prussia meet them at a given time in the future.
Good idea to order them prepainted too, lovely paint work.
Now we have France, Britain and Prussian armies on the tables. :P Excellent.

Nice! So how much did that lot set you back?
I'm going to have to get cracking on my second brigade aren't I? :D

Very nice. You know, after all the pain-staking hours of working on my French and still having them unfinished and looking 'rushed', I think you made a great decision to just buy your models painted. ;)

Good looking guys. Long live the Tsar! :D
