I now have joined the electronic age and have paypal and EBay auctions.


This is a blog I set up to chronicle my adventures in wargaming overseas in Scotland in 2011 and to continue following particular games overseas that I enjoyed with my new friends in Edinburgh. I look forward to finally updating this with more pics soon.

Alte Fritz action link and OB for latre refight Raid on the Bakery


Austrians vs Prussians
Prussian Strike Force:

Von Zieten's Command:

5 sqds of hussars (60 figures)

1 horse artillery battery (2 x 6pdrs with 10 crew)

1 battalion of grenadiers

1 battalion of musketeers

Von Kleist's Command

3 sqds of horse dragoons (36 figures)

1 sqds of hussars (12 figures)

1 battery of frei korps artillery (2 x 6pdrs with 10 crew)

1 btn of elite Jagers (48 figures)

1 coy of frei korps jagers (12 figures)

1 btn of von Kleist Kroats

All of the Prussian units were rated as Veteran except for the Elite rated Jagers

Austrian Garrison at Borne

Croat & Light Troops Command (left flank):

1 btn of Croats (72 figures)

1 coy of Austrian jagers (20 figures)

1 battery of Austrian 3-pdrs (with 8 crew)

2 sqds of Hussars

Town Garrison Command (center and right flank)

2 btns of Austrian musketeers

1 coy of light piquets

1 Austrian battery ( 2 x 6pdrs and 1 x 12 pdr and 16 crew)

1 sqd of horse grenadiers serving as an escort for the garrison commander

5 sqds of Saxon dragoons (arriving on turn 3 or 4 , depending on a die roll)

The Prussian players were given a handful of yellow cards and instructed to write the name of each unit under their command on a card. They were given several spare cards to be used as "dummy cards" with no unit on it to provide some disinformation or fog of war for the Austrians. The Prussians began the game by setting their cards on the table in lieu of their actual figures. The Austrian players could only guess as to what units might be listed on the cards. So they had no idea of the forces that were descending upon the town of Born.

The Prussians were given two free moves to start the game so that they could maneuver and sneak up on the town's garrison. On Turn 3, the Austrian players had a 50% chance of activating their units with a D6 die roll (odd number - they don't activate; even number - they do activate). In the event that a Prussian unit moved within 16" of an Austrian unit, then the Austrian unit could automatically activate.
