Just put online despite MObirise bugs after 7 hours fighting it… Bug with the increased size pictures. Maybe soon to be corrected. I opened a grand battery fire of emails to the Mobirise help ;)Anyone using this system?

Plenty of other things to put in waiting, on Russian houses, on minis, on Maloyaroslavets tactical analysis (as i went there) same with the taking of Smolensk and even more. Pity stuck now.

"Several turns saw a lull in the cavalry fight on the right (I will take the viewpoint of the French;) as the whole of Kreutz corps was hauled back out of the way across the river. He went on a sort of bemused silence for several turns, no doubt wholly out of depth with the contest, he being a "mediocre" leader, missing giving any orders to coordinate his divisions..

On the left, Beauharnais also missed a few orders to be sent on time so his reinforcing the "probe turned attack" to draw in and pin more Russians went nicely but too piecemeal when Bagration who was all through the game very active, brought back troops, and reinforcements…."

If you like it and want more I need to know;)

I had trouble going where I wanted to go on site but loved what I saw.This issue could have been on my end but don't know.
You have two tables are they connected for the miniatures if not physically connected? ( as in figures can travel to the other one.) My table while very old school is 6' 6 wide and I can reach the middle.
Borodino is a big interest to me so wanted to see what you have done.

Three tables. Center 1.6 m wide, two along thewall paralell one 70 one
All by 45 m long. The. Wall ones c ould be slightly longer. And I plan two little. Moveable. Flanks in c ase, od. '60x. 60 to add on small tables. These most of the time just to put stuff, not necasarily part of the set up.

The game pics on the second half are not opeing right. System bug so far no one found a way. might haveto redo with static pics.
