The last time Bob & I played a Franco-Prussian War game was 2006. Last week, Bob brought a portion of his figures over and we tried a game using home rules on my dining table.
We are still experimenting with these rules. In our test game, the French lost an infantry regiment to Prussian artillery bombardment, while the Prussians lost a cavalry regiment. There was no clear victor.
The figures are 15mm by Rank & File. Many of the figures in the photos above were excellently painted by our friend, the late Charlie Prosek.
I have a division (2 brigades) of 1866 Austrians in this scale that are painted, another division partially painted, which would give me an entire Corps of Austrians. I just have to get around to finish painting & mounting them.
There are other rules I am interested in trying for this period: Volley & Bayonet, HFG (Horse, Foot, & Guns), 19th Century Warfare, and 1866/1870.
