Thank you to everyone for their kind comments.

This section of pictures concludes my re-fight and I will be moving on to re-fighting Antietam .

There is a WIP in the ACW section.

I was particularly pleased with the Ney scene but unfortunately my attempts to produce scale burning candles failed and I resorted to a pink light to represent sunset.

Similarly, I spent an hour trying to get the correct lighting level with a burning torch on the ADC. My attempts failed and I therefore Photoshopped a more successful attempt from my Ligny re-fight, correctly lit.

I have posted an after action report in the relevant section for those who might be interested.

Thank you again.
