Blucher's First Outing at CLAWS

   This was the last weekend of January, actually. Jim purchased an entire set of minis, already painted, and the rules, on eBay from someone getting out of the game. The figures he picked up are 28mm, Foundry I think, and quite nicely painted and flagged. The big chunky group bases worked well with the visual aspect of the game and the level of command and control.

The British infantry advance boldly across the CigarBox battle mat.

The Man Himself, Napoleon, the Corsican Ogre, leads the French onslaught.
From the rear, like a good general.

A Bird's Eye View

  We used 15mm terrain, and that seemed to work well since it's more of an idea that "this area is built up" than "this building holds a squad". Again, scope of the game - it's not Flames of War.

   Two games were played, and the result was a French victory in one and a British victory in the other. Everyone playing seemed to enjoy it. It's an interesting system, and I have a feeling we will be seeing it again in the near future.

This is Winston. He's my new buddy. He's part of the reason I haven't done much game stuff lately.

It does look very good and balanced results to boot - Winston is adorable!
