Impressive collection of figures. Interesting idea for the game I'll need to spend more time with this.

I posted a part 2 to this as a separate posting but the post seem to have disappeared to another heading(!), anyway this is the another update on this battle on the blog. This time the Russian Army and thoughts on the battle field for this what-if battle. Also some other GNW related reflections Hope it is of some interest! more here rollaone.com/2017/10/25/towards-moscow-trilogy-tmt-horka-1708-russians-and-the-field-of-battle-gnw-stuff-and-podcasts

Some more progress on the Russians in the latest blog. Also a Kickstarter you may find interesting for your forest needs, and some more can be found here.https://rollaone.com/2017/11/02/i-am-the-out-of-controller-reflections-a-kickstarter-and-the-start-of-another-project-and-some-progress-on-an-old-one

Fantastic blog! And project.
I've just finished Sjöström's Fraustadt book (hard to come by) and it was great.

Thanks Gunfreak, it was actually that book that inspired me to put on my first GNW battle in 6mm a few years back. Here is a picture of it.
