A close run thing, French Revolution 1795.

Post by Sheepman » Thu May 16, 2019 8:14 pm

A thoroughly enjoyable evenings entertainment was had by Neal and myself playing a French Revolutionary encounter set in Flanders in 1795 between a fairly solid Austrian force under Haupman Von Trump, Trump by name and flatulent by nature and a flighty but competent French group of rouges commanded by Lieutenant Victor. Objective, kill each other! Please look out for Korporal Hackle the midget (a Foundry figure who when compared to his counterpart true 28mm fellow can be seen to be vertically challenged) performed heroics on the day.

Really great to see this period getting a run - and a fun tale too!

sorry to the developers if this is the way you intended it to be

Excellent looking game.

Recently purchased a lot of Revolutionary Armies new ranges, predominantly French but also picked up some Austrians. Plus also building a Vendee/Chouan Royal Catholic Armee using their models, plus Foundry and perry bits.
