Another week and another game of Napoleonic Black Powder, this time against Steve and his Russian. I decided to try something a bit different this time, looking at the French Grand Army that invaded Russian in 1812 the X Corps was a mix of Polish and Prussians troop, seeing I have some of both I thought it would be to give them a run out. The plan for the game would see me take command of three defensible positions (2 built up areas plus barricaded bridge) while Steve would have a large Russian force and eight turns of play to take them.
It was a cracking game and went right down to the wire, I had lost two of my four Brigades and the only reason the Poles were still on the table was they were in the buildings.
Anyway that’s it for now.
