    One of the games played at last month’s meeting of the Devon Wargames Group was a fictitious clash on a river crossing set during Napoleon’s campaign in Poland.

    The French had their work cut out as their attempts to withdraw across the River Kolnica was made rather problematic by a sharp attack by a Russian Division looming out of the morning fog.

    Tremendous looking game!  I like the idea of using blinds to represent enemy troops – or dummies – because of the misty day.

    Yeah, nah. Nice scenario but I’d have moderated the numbers.
    Not a fan of wall to wall troops- just the same old grind of yesteryear…

    If I may suggest- if troops don’t ‘fit’ next to an impassable object like the river- they should be forfeit.
    And it also shouldnt be used as a ‘parking lot’ for the extras…

    These also are realities of campaigning- least of what you expect will happen! And room for ‘tactical’ use of cav is always helpful,
    fwiw, dave
