Volley and Bayonet

Good things take time ...

Well... we estimate 14-15 years. That's when Keith and I bought the figures for our 6mm French and Prussian armies for Volley and Bayonet Franco Prussian War. I painted up about 2/3 of the figures I bought at that time. They have sat in the box since. Keith similarly has had his painted figures sitting in a box unused for a very long time.Tonight .. finally... a small game ... fascinating.  I leave Keith to do the AAR. Here are just a few photos from the game.. a teaser. The figures are Heroics and Ros, the Prussians mine, the French Keith's.

Russo-Turkish War 1877

Finally, a chance to play a Volley and Bayonet game with Adrian's latest period and armies: the Russo-Turkish war of 1877. The armies are 15mm and as always beautifully painted. Adrian took the time to fit the armaments of the two armies into the VnB framework, with Turks equipped with better artillery than the Russians, and also better advanced cartridge rifles. This gave a different feel to the more normal mFranco Prussian sub period we might play, yet another example of the amazing flexibility of the rules set. From what little I know of the war, the outcomes were quite nicely historic too - perhaps the best sign of a good rules set.No AAR this time, just a small selection of photos of the beautiful figures.
