At the weekend I ran Balaclava using BBB rules

This is very good work. Thank you for sharing.

Absolutely stunning table. Love the harbor with ships and stockpiles. You're use of various proxies to assemble 6mm Crimean War armies is very innovative. I'm painting up armies in 10mm and your 6mm efforts continue to serve as inspiration.

Beautiful work as ever, Matt. Do I understand right that the Allied victory was due less to the actual combat results than to how they were viewed in the corridors of power? (I.e., the dice reflecting Allied nonchalance regarding having to commit 4th Div, versus Russian consternation at qualms about having committed their reserve?)

Thanks Chris and yes, partly. The Russians also failed to properly secure the Fedoukine Heights, allowing the French to waltz in without firing a shot and, more importantly, not have to roll a dice for commiting either of their divisions.

Aha – careless. No wonder there was konsternation in the Kremlin!

No, Chris, not in the Crimean War, with the capital at St Petersburg. There was, perhaps, worry in the Winter Palace, or nattering on Nevsky Prospekt.

Admirable alliteration. I could quibble about Tsar Nicholas having recently built the Grand Kremlin Palace and say that's why I mentioned it … or I could just admit you caught me out. :-)
