Battle of Alma

Tomorrow I and some friends will play Battle of Alma 20th September 1854, the first battle of the Crimean war using the scenarion in the Black Powder rulebook as inspiration.

My friend Oskar have had a painting Frenzy last weeks In less than 3 weeks he have painted both armys using 15mm minis, it is about 500 infantry, 160 Cavalry, 8 guns with crew and some limbers and 12 commanders ! Not entirely true, some of us was forced to help him out...but I think he have painted about 90% of them.

Tomorrow I will act as the british C-in-C, the easely confused Lord Raglan. I have made a realy good plan for us to beat the...French...or was it Russians.... ENEMY :)
