This is the second of the A7V tanks from the Blitz’s Battlegroup box.  I painted this as probably the most famous A7V of all time – Mephisto.  This tank was captured by the Australians and is in a museum in Australia.  It is the only ori…

Dzisiaj kolejny skończony element: murek od Tereny do Gier. Przeleżał on w szufladzie dość długi czas – był on jedną z nagród w konkursie modelarskim forum Strategie.net, gdzie moja HMS Britannia, zajęła 2 miejsce. Ostatnio postanowiłem jednak trochę “posprzątać w szufladach i oto efekt,:

Nowi rajtarzy dla moich Szwedów do OiM. New reiters for my Swedes for BFaS.

Posted on April 13th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Minęło już sporo czasu od momentu gdy pokazałem coś mojego nowego. Dzisiaj rajtarzy szwedzcy od Wargamera. Jestem średnio zadowolony z efektu, chciałem szybko i wyszło, jak wyszło. Co zrobić, przyłożę się lepiej przy następnych figurkach – a te odbiorę już sobie niedługo na Salute, na którym się pojawię po rocznej przerwie.
It’s been long time since I have showed something new, painted by myself. Today Swedish reiters from Wargamer. I’m not happy with the effect I received. I wanted it quick and it wasn’t a good idea. What can I do, I will try better with my new figures, which I will receive on Salute. I’m returning to the show after yearly break.
Oto nowe oddziały:
Here are new units:
Dowódca
Commander

Rajtarzy
Reiters

Rajtarzy opancerzeni
Armoured reiters

A tak wygląda mój cały podjazd:
Here all my skirmish forces:
Teraz trzeba będzie wypróbować ich w boju.
Now I need to try them in battle.

Major Horace Turvington had clear orders: Take the de la Bréjaude plantation from the brigands. The manor house had been burned down during that fateful night in August 1791, when the slaves of the Northern Plains had risen in union. However, the Marquis de la Bréjaude was an important ally and it would show good will … Continue reading Take the Plantation!

Albuera 1811.

Posted on April 8th, 2015 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Last Thursday I have joined to the game with Blucher rules. It was refight of Battle of Albuera. This was my first time with this new set and I can admit that I liked it very much.
W ostatni czwartek dołączyłem do gry rozegranej z zasadami Blucher. Było to ponowne rozegranie bitwy pod Albuerą. To było moje pierwsze spotkanie z tymi zasadami i muszę przyznać, że bardzo mi się one spodobały.
SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Sandy Gilespie

UMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Sandy Gilespie

SCENERY/SCENERIA: Sandy Gilespie
MODELS&FIGURES/ MODELE I FIGURKI: Sandy Gilespie

1. Forces. Siły.

The forces were original to the Battle. The French were commanded by me and Douglas, the Allied by Alistair and Neal. 
Siły były identyczne do prawdziwej bitwy. Francuzi byli dowodzeni przeze mnie i Douglasa, Aliantami dowodzili Alistair i Neal.

2. The Game. Gra.

Our game was almost identical to the original battle. Started from cavalry fight on the left flank. Again the French Cuirassiers together with Polish lancers were much better than their British and Spanish opponents. Allied lost two brigades there and now comes time for infantry fighting.
Nasza gra była prawie identyczna do tej oryginalnej. Zaczęła się od walki kawaleryjskiej na lewym skrzydle. Ponownie francuscy kirasjerzy wraz z polskimi lansjerami okazali się znacznie lepsi od swoich brytyjskich i hiszpańskich przeciwników. Alianci stracili w tej walce dwie brygady kawalerii i przyszedł czas na walkę piechoty.
Corps of General Girard (myself) attacked the Allied infantry. However this attack was not supported by the rest of the French forces, which acted very guardedly, stopped by British cavalry. Seeing an opportunity for causing a lot of damages I have attacked the British and Spanish units. Managed to destroy few brigades, however that was enough. Because of my casualties I had to withdraw.
Korpus generała Girarda (ja) zaatakował aliancką piechotę. Niestety ten atak nie zastał wsparty przez resztę oddziałów francuskich, które działały bardzo ostrożnie, zatrzymane przez brytyjską kawalerię. Widząc szansę na zadanie poważnych zniszczeń, zaatakowałem brytyjskie i hiszpańskie oddziały. Udało mi się zniszczyć dwie brygady, jednak tego było za wiele. Z powodu moich strat musiałem się wycofać.
In that moment rest of the French units should attack, but they were to far from the main battlefield and being busy with some other British forces. Finally when they decided to attack, was to late. Allied managed to destroy few of my units and now the game have it decisive moment. Whos unit will be destroyed as the first – those will lose the game…
W tym momencie reszta oddziałów francuskich powinna była zaatakować, jednak znajdowały się one zbyt daleko od głównego pola walki, zajęte walką z innymi oddziałami brytyjskimi. W końcu, kiedy zdecydowali się na atak było już za późno. Aliantom udało się zniszczyć kilka moich jednostek i gra wkroczyła w decydujący moment. Tego oddział, który zostanie zniszczony jako pierwszy, ten przegra grę…
To bring back the victory for us, I have again used my cavalry. French cuirassiers together with Polish lancers attacked British lines, but this time they attack was very unsuccessful and they get repulsed. In revenge they fired at my cavalry and managed to destroy the brigade of cuirassiers and in that way they won the game.
By przywrócić nam szanse na zwycięstwo, ponownie użyłem mojej kawalerii. Francuscy kirasjerzy wraz z polskimi lansjerami zaatakowało brytyjskie linie, jednak tym razem bardzo nieskutecznie i zostali oni odparci. W odpowiedzi ostrzelali moją kawalerię, czym udało im się zniszczyć brygadę kirasjerów i w ten sposób wygrać grę.

3. Summary. Podsumowanie.

The Blucher rules of Sam A. Mustafa are very simple and I liked them very much. The game is on the corps level, so you can play a very large battles. The best from them is the way the units are activated during the game. Your opponent roll 3D6 and this the point value of all actions you can take during the move phase. All movements and maneuvers cost some points, but the best of this is, that you don’t know how many points you have available, because those are only know to your opponent. The whole game is IGoYouGo type of gaming with three phases during the turn: movement, shooting and hand to hand with only those units whos not been activated during the move can fire. Firing is very simple: 6 is always a hit, sometimes is a first 5 as well (depending of the unit value and their special rules). If your unit get hit it decreases the number of dice available for shooting etc. As I said before I liked this system, but I think that it will not replace the Black Powder rules for our Napoleonic gaming, however it could be a very good supplement for our games.
Zasady Blucher Sama A. Mustafy są bardzo proste i bardzo mi się podobały. Gra się na poziomie korpusu, więc można rozgrywać naprawdę duże bitwy. Najlepszym elementem jest sposób aktywacji jednostek w grze. Twój przeciwnik rzuca 3K6 i w ten sposób określa ilość punktów, jakie możesz wydać w trakcie fazy ruchu. Wszystkie ruchy i manewry kosztują określoną ilość punktów, ale najlepsze w tym że nie wiesz ile masz do wydania punktów, bo te są znane tylko Twojemu przeciwnikowi. Cała gra jest typu IGoYouGo z trzema fazami: ruchu, strzelania i walki wręcz. Tylko oddziały, które się nie poruszyły mogą strzelać. Strzelanie jest bardzo proste, 6 oznacza zawsze trafienie, czasem również pierwsze 5 (w zależności od wartości oddziału i jego cech szczególnych). Jeśli oddział zostanie trafiony, redukuje to liczbę kości dostępnych przy strzelaniu itp. Tak jak napisałem to powyżej system mi się spodobał, jednak nie sądzę by zastąpił Black Powder dla naszych gier napoleońskich, jednakże najprawdopodobniej stanie się on bardzo dobrym uzupełnieniem dla naszych gier.

I’ve finally painted up enough figures for a first game of our new Haitian Revolution project.
