My name is Michel, from Normandy, France. In my club, we have just begun using Black Powder, but we are enthusiastic. Here is the report of our first battle, somewhere in northern Germany in 1759. http://laforgedecelebrimbor.blogspot.co ... black.html Sorry, it's in french... and the allies lost. Best regards.
I can hardly read a word of French but enjoyed the pictures tremendously Thankyou! The mix of figures and re enactment was a nice touch. Figures look great I have one negative observation....very serious looking friends; perhaps decorate the table with some wine glasses and some of your finest vintages next time?
Many Thanks My Lords. Don't be confused. For this report, I used many ancient words from eighteenth century french, which is quite difficult to understand, even for the frenchs. Next time, I will perhaps write a summary in english. We truly like Black Powder, but our units were made for other rules (Warfare in the age of Reason, and a WAB-like for 18th century). That's why we used 12 figures battalions. We also removed casualties and used markers for disorders. The brands of the figures are (mostly) Front Rank and Foundry. And yes, as true frenchs, we like wine. But our wargaming club is housed with other associations which don't authorize alcohol. It's very sad indeed. Dura lex, sed lex.
