Another Black Powder Battle: British vs. Russian in Crimea

Last Sunday I got another Black Powder game in (for two in one month). This time it was British vs. Russians using the Crimean Stats from the Rule book. My friend Mehmet wrote a illustrated battle report which I have uploaded on Google Drive. You can find the shareable link below. All in all a great game that ended in a draw.


Here is a teaser picture.
Russian units march towards the thin red line.

Battle of Gaine's Mill: Board is done?


Well here is the board almost completed. The only thing missing is McGhee hill, and I am not 100% sure about how to represent it. Beyond that the forests, streams, roads etc are there. I also received my order from Pendraken for the union side, so in due time the other thing missing (armies) will show up1


Beyond that, here is a awesome photo from the Karagh Club, when the Lego people came to show their stuff.

Assault at Plevna: Black Powder Report

Good day to all

Introduction



Last weekend me and Onur had the chance to run a game of our Black Powder Army Lists and Scenarios for the 1877-1878 Russo-Ottoman War. (which you can find on this blog).
We decided to ran the first ahistotrical scenario from the Conflict book (Seems more appropriate than army book), which is Assault on Defensive works. This is based on the battles around Pleven.
The scenario saw a Russian Line Infantry Division assault a section of the Ottoman works around Plevna defended by a Ottoman division size force. (some of the pictures are a courtesy of Onur)
