After the capitulation at ULM, the pursuit of the remaining forces of Austria (not including Archduke Charles forces facing Massena in Italy), and the subsequent fall of Vienna the campaign continues with the remaining Austrians on the north bank of the Danube. The French continue to advance; crossing the Danube at several points. The first battle will be at the crossroads near Schongrabern.

Nicely done – and that is truly a "mass of bayonets"

Looking very convincing!

I think me and mates made a mistake way back by choosing 15mm figures and not 6mm…

But the uniforms do look better on larger figures. :/

(EDIT: hmmm, looking at the closeups I think you are also using 15mm. Sir, with that amount of figures you are truly insane. *Hats off!*)

Thanks L1A!
The figures are Adler 6mm…..and yes I am insane! I started with 25mm, then 15mm, and finally settled with these beautiful Adlers. My wonderful wife painted about 50% of the figures. So she deserves a lot of the credit.

Gaming in 6mm does lend itself to much bigger battles.
Cheers from Texas!

What rules did you use?

18CTEXAN20 Sep 2017 6:56 a.m. PST

Figure scale is 1 figure equals 10 real men. Rules are "ACW" Rally Round the Flag" converted for Napoleonics …. allows for very big battles. Ground scale is 1 inch equals 25 yds, 1 turn equals 15 minutes. A turn is divided into 4 subsets
