Cruel Seas First Games

Manged to play cruel seas using our house rules last night at the club ,we got in 2 games the "ships in the night " and the "Torpedo Run" scenarios from the main rule book . The first game was fast and bloody but all my 2 vospers just managed to escape but with very heavy damage and the Torpedo run finished with one of my vospers sitting floating along with no damage points left waiting to be resued or captured and the other being forced to leave the table with crew and bridge hits but luckily one of its Torps managed to hit the tanker which although ablaze was still under power so technically a German victory .The house rules certainly made the game more realistic and fun . Next week Johns Yanks take on my Italians .ships in the nightthe brits run while they still can Torpedo RunTorp away ,destined to miss@nd vosper makes a daring run to fire its fish boom

They had continual quarrels together which was to stand first, and every year they struggled in fierce rivalry for the chief posts. One of them, Pullo, when the fight was fiercest by the entrenchments, said: "Why hesitate, Vorenus? Or what chance of proving your pluck do you wait for? This day shall decide our quarrels." So saying, he stepped outside the entrenchments, and dashed upon the section of the enemy which seemed to be in closest array. Neither did Vorenus keep within the rampart, but in fear of what all men would think he followed hard. Then, at short range, Pullo sent his pike at the enemy, and pierced

1st Battalion, Little Russia Grenadier Regiment

I am making good progress this spring on my long neglected Napoleonic project.  This time we have the 1st battalion of the Little Russia grenadier regiment.  To be honest, I had not set out to model this particular unit so I really have no idea if this looks 'correct' in terms of uniform.  It is the Little Russia regiment because Warlord kindly included flags in the box for this unit.When I started my Russians I really knew nothing about Napoleonic Russians - how to configure the units, how to paint the uniforms, what are the flags all about?  Part of the joy of historical wargaming is the research and discovery of a new period or topic. Needless to say I have been doing a lot of research all-be-it on the internet.  Since I have been working on grenadiers that has been my main focus.  These figures are painted in the 1809-14 style with the old style shako and large plume.  I painted the jackets more inline with my understanding of the 1812 uniform (1812 being my area of
