Part one of a two part battle report for a 28mm pick up game of Drums and Shakos Large Battles. This battle took place on the kitchen table, using a selection of home-made terrain boards. The two armies are a bit of a miss-mash of new and old (re-based) figures from my collection.
The British force is a re-based Peninsular army made up of Front rank figures. Although more historically correct than the French army the Guards brigade did require stunt doubles for this game.
The French force is in fact two armies slapped together to make up numbers for the game. First, on the Left flank we have Foy’s division that was at Waterloo (well what I have finished painting of it that is). This wing is made up entirely of Perry figures while the reserve and right flank are from my old Front Rank collection. The Front rank French started life as an 1812 army, which then morphed into a peninsular army and is now currently half way through the re-basing process.
