The elite companies of the 28eme legere, under the command of their brigadier, Général Victor-Eugène BOUILLON-CANTINAT, as they prepare to assault a manor house. (Said to contain a large cache of the most excellent pinot-noir- the good general has a keen interest in all matters of logistical importance.)
Merde! Not a single cask to be found. The Prussians must have gotten there before us! We'll go and hunt down some pesky Freikorps instead.
Half of a battalion is finished (indeed a full battalion should I wish to play a game of Shako)- the centre companies are soon to follow, along with a section of artillery- and hopefully a bit of a surprise!
The third week of September is a long vacation here, and not only can I paint 'til I drop, but I'm also scheduled for an actual wargame! We'll be playing DBR, but it will be a good chance to promote/ hype/ cajole interest in a game of DBN.
