Today on my blog, I’m looking at a refight we did of Cornwallis’ attempted flank attack on Washington’s Army at the Brandywine River in 1777. Played in 28mm and with ‘British Grenadier!’ rules:

Having waited in vain for 25+ years for AB Figures to produce a Murat, Sho Boki kindly released a whole regiment of the great man! So here’s my review: http://www.jemimafawr.co.uk/2019/05/23/the-first-horseman-of-europe-marshal-murat-in-15mm-sho-boki-miniatures/
I’m going to need to re-stock my pink and gold paints…

I was fortunate enough to be invited to play in a wonderful VBCW game at Partizan 2019. Here’s my take on the game:

After 25 years of painting, I’ve finally finished the last of my French Imperial Guard infantry, so have been sticking them up on the blog. The first part covers the Old Guard:
The second part covers the Middle Guard:

Cheers, although I would say it’s less of a showcase and more of my Nan’s dusty old Welsh dresser…

I always appreciate the cheekiness of the front line reports. 🙂

I’ll pass your appreciation on to Huw. He’ll probably just tell you to f*&% off…

I’ve been painting some aeroplanes for the Angolan Border War, as well as photographing some of my old stuff:

As helicopter models seem to have a very finite shelf-life, with many seemingly falling apart before they get into a game, I thought I’d better photograph some of mine and stick them on the blog. I’ve also stuck some organisational and history guff in there for the insomniacs among you…

As my Cassinga Raid game at ‘Warfare’ is now only three weeks away, I’ve been frantically painting, sprucing up and converting some more aircraft for the game, as well as getting some old models out of the box for a photo-shoot:

We did a little game in the club last night, based on a historical attempt by South African forces to get their hands on n SA-8 ‘Gecko’ SAM:

Over the last few months I’ve been building terrain, troops and aircraft for a demo-game that I’ll be taking around some of the shows, starting with ‘Warfare’ at Reading in two weeks, then ‘Crusade’ at Penarth in January and ‘Partizan’ in Newark next May. It’s now 99% finished and ready for the shows, so we did a little play-test at the club on Saturday and it went very well, so I’m happy. I’ve posted on my blog about the terrain-building. I’ll follow this up with a report on the play-test, the full scenario and then the actual show games:

It’s all been a bit Cold-Warry on my blog just lately, so thought I’d stick up some recently-painted Wellingtonics by way of an antidote…

Well I didn’t manage to play my Big Christmas Game this year, but here’s the scenario anyway (for ‘Napoleon’s Battles’ rules)…
It should be easily converted to other similar-leveled games such as Age of Eagles or Blucher:

My favourite Napoleonic battle to wargame is the Battle of Dennewitz, fought on 6th September 1813. Marshal Ney was trying to bully his way through to Berlin, where Marshal Oudinot had already failed a few weeks earlier using the exact-same troops. General Buelow, at the sharp-end of Bernadotte’s Army of the North, was trying to stop him. This is a great encounter battle with a very cosmopolitan flavour – an Allied army of Prussians, Russians and Swedes, versus a ‘French’ army of Frenchmen, Bavarians, Saxons, Italians, Wuerttembergers and Poles. Even the British Rocket Troop makes an appearance, so what’s not to love…?
I’ve played this scenario about five or six times since the 1990s, but not recently, so it would be good to dig it out again.

A few people have been asking me about how I scale Fire & Fury for 10mm figures, so I’ve made some notes on base-sizes and re-scaled the F&F movement and firing charts for the smaller ground-scale:

This week I thought I’d dig the old Burma collection out for a game. And a cracking game it was! 🙂
Please note that there seems to be a problem with my service provider today my e-mail is telling me that the site is up and down like a whore’s drawers and not all photos are showing up even when it is working. It’ll hopefully improve in a day or two!

Today marks the 223rd anniversary of the surrender, on 24th February 1797 of the last invasion of Great Britain. In reality the ‘battle’ was a near-bloodless comic opera… So of course we HAD to wargame it… 😀

Following harassment, I’ve started posting my AB Austrians on the blog, starting with the infantry regiments. The usual disclaimers apply: This blog may cause drowsiness. Don’t read my blog if taking strong medication, driving or operating heavy machinery. Wash your hands thoroughly after viewing. If symptoms persist, self-isolate for two weeks with a pile of unpainted AB Figures and paint.
