More testing of Blucher

Got my new bases for Blucher on the Wargames table at last. 1809 Austrian against French. Austrian's won, which makes a change. I am convinced that most Napoleonic rules have a built in bias in favour of the French!

I used the download from Sam's site for the Austrian cards, but in future I think I will just use the roster sheets. Easier to refer to once the figures are on the table.

Here a few photies.



  1. Looks good :) I agree about the roster sheets - much easier if the troops are clearly labelled up or recognisable on the table. Those movement trays look good...where are they from...? I also agree about the French bias - but it is more theory than fact :)

  3. The bases are from warbles. To my design, more of which on the first Blucher basing post.http://balkandave.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/basing-for-blucher.html
