My full Brunswick Corps got it's first official outing as a complete entity a few weeks ago against Cam's French it was an all action nail biter for most of the game and you can read about it on my blog. I hope someone finds it interesting and/or enjoyable and/or inspiring…

P.S. Apologies in advance for any typos or grammar or similar errors it turned into a bit of a novel and I haven't had time to do a second thorough end to end proof read yet!

P.P.S. I've cross posted to the Napoleonic Gallery forum as there are lots of pics of our figs etc, and the Napoleonic Scenario forum as we used a modified C.S. Grant scenario for the game (and details of our modified scenario is included)

As usual, fantasic looking game.

Great game – thanks for posting!

Love those old CS Grant rules

Very cool, and IMHO, I would leave the Brunswickers glossed…it gives them that shiny toy soldier look.

Thanks all 4 of you – appreciate the comments…

@Federick – FWIW it wasn't actually Charles Grant's rules (we used Lasalle by Sam Mustafa), but the original scenario was by his son C.S. Grant published in the 1981 book mentioned in the post… :-)

@cavCrazy – Yes Cam my opponent (the French) likes that glossy toy soldier look – I'm afraid I don't, partly because it makes photography difficult, and because especially with dark uniforms the refection detracts from the colour IMO, and thirdly I don't want them to look like toy soldiers – they're valiant little historical warriors…! ;-) They'll all be getting a good coat of Tamiya Flat Clear Lacquer* before their next outing (* unfortunately no Dullcote or Mr. Top Coat Flat available in NZ anymore…).

To each his own my friend, I like the glossy "toy soldier look", even with dullcoat you still have a beautiful army.

Mycenius Inactive Member04 Nov 2011 3:00 p.m. PST

Indeed! And Cheers @cavcrazy – yes I know a few people with the same preference as you, as you say each to his own!

Entertaining report thanks Mycenius. I hope we get to see the Brunswickers again soon.

I hope we get to see the Brunswickers again soon.

Yes Max – hoping to give them another outing soon – hopefully fully dullcoted and with their basing detailed and complete.
