Waterloo, June 2015 - West Point Museum Commemorative Games

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, three GM's, two assistant GM's, twenty-four players, my wife and a host of camp followers descended upon the Large Weapons Gallery at the West Point Museum. The battle was divided into three separate games, Hougoumont; La Haye Sainte/Papelotte and Plancenoit. The three games played consecutively, with three different historical start times. At the conclusion of the three games, the results of each were then combined to achieve the final result.

 

 

The following images are taken from the Hougoumont table throughout the course of the day:

We played from 9:30 AM until 6:45, with a small break for lunch. In that time we played between eleven and twelve turns, and achieved decisive results on each table. The final result was a Major French Victory, with over 38,000 casualties, missing and prisoners shared across the three tables. Twenty-one Generals were hors de combat in one way or another. The allies lost thirty-three cannon, and four colors, two British and two Prussian. We turned history on its head, and our game would see Napoleon triumphantly entering Brussels on the 19th at the head of an unscathed Old Guard and VI Corps!

 

Thank you so very much to all the staff at the museum for  giving us this amazing opportunity - we look forward to returning!

Historicon, 2014 - The American Civil War and English Civil War

I hosted four games this Historicon, two on Friday featured a fictional encounter from the Western theater of the American Civil War, and two on Saturday that featured a fictional encounter from the advance to Naseby in 1645. The following PDf's show the results and combat losses of each of those events. Interestingly all the games incurred pyrrhic victories, two for the Confederates, and one each for the Royalists and New Model Army. This seems to suggest that the action was hot and heavy and that the players were tenacious in the extreme, ready to inflict losses to achieve results. Great gaming all round, thank you to all the players, and the other GM's that hosted other C&GII events at the convention.

Cold Wars, 2014 - The 1814 Campaign

I hosted two of the three 1814 campaign games which were run on Saturday, John hosted the first, held on Friday.

 

John's game featured the Imperial Guard Infantry, and line cavalry, against an isolated Prussian force. The Prussians didn't put a foot wrong, but unfortunately for them, neither did the French, and the French Guard infantry, supported by line Cuirassier and dragoons, destroyed the Prussian command. The French losses were less than 500, whilst the Prussian command lost four times that number.

 

The next game featured the Imperial Guard cavalry, and line infantry, against a Russian corps. This was going to be a tougher fight for the French as more Russians were engaged, than had been Prussians in the earlier battle. The French cavalry were engaged by Lanskoi's Russian Hussar division, which fielded eight units of Hussars, but these proved to be little more than a speed bump for the French Imperial Guard light cavalry. The French infantry were less successful in driving the Russians out of the farm, that protected the important highway that acted as the Russo-Prussian line of communication, but ultimately the victory went to the French, who saw losses of less than 600 against three times that number of Russian losses.

Napoleon now had two victories, and the Parisians were jubilant.
 
The third battle now loomed. This featured the combined French forces from the first two battles, opposed to fresh, previously unengaged, Russian and Prussian forces. The battlefield was an extension of the earlier second battle, and would be fought in the environs, of the farm, village and hamlet, that were strung out along the highway leading to Paris. As French losses had been light in the earlier two engagements, they entered the third battle with a healthy advantage of close to 5,000 men. The earlier battles had seen wide sweeping flank movements from the French, but Napoleon was content to sledgehammer his opponents into submission in this final engagement. This was to be an infantry and artillery battle. For the allies, it was important to hold the three built up areas, for the French, only the farm held territorial advantage. They were out to destroy their opponents, and capture trophies.
 
The French, buoyed by their earlier successes, were confident of victory, but threw caution to the wind as a result. The 10e Hussards suffered terribly as they vaingloriously attacked fresh Russian positions early in the battle. The 2e battalions of both the Chasseurs a Pied and Grenadiers a Pied, both lost standards, the Chasseurs being effectively destroyed, when each were attacked by combined assaults from Russian infantry and cavalry. On the French left flank, Ricard's division was slowly being forced back, in the face of determined Russian opposition. On the French right, a Russian dragoon regiment struck the 2e Regt de Marine, in square, broke into the square and took their eagle, but the Marines drove the dragoons out, closed ranks, and repulsed the Russians. Napoleon saw victory ebbing away from his grasp, and ordered the Imperial Guard heavy cavalry and Garde d'Honneur into action. The Guard d'Honneur, struck several Prussian infantry columns, one struggling to form battalion mass, and wrought havoc amongst their conscripted ranks. A second unit of Garde d'Honneur burst through a cloud of cossacks striking a Russian battery in flank capturing eight cannon. The remains of the battery redeployed beyond the hamlet, only to be struck frontally by the Empress Dragoons, who rode down the battery, taking the remaining four cannon. Meanwhile the Grenadiers a Cheval, to the right of the Empress Dragoons, rode over a Russian battalion in square, sabering over half the unit and capturing their standard.
 
With serried ranks of French cavalry uncommitted in reserve, the Russian and Prussian resolve broke, and Blucher ordered an orderly withdrawal from the field. Napoleon had won his third victory, capturing five standards and thirteen cannon, but the result was hard won, the Old Guard infantry had suffered terribly, and he had lost three standards, and three cannon. Friant was dead, and both Cambronne and Petit of the Old Guard infantry were wounded. He could boast a victorious campaign, but clearly, his enemy were still capable of resistance, whilst his army was bleeding with little hope of reinforcement.

Borodino, 1812 - The 200th Anniversary games

In recognition of the 200th Anniversary of one of the pivotal battles of the Napoleonic epoch, we have decided to work towards refighting the battle as a series of linked scenarios at the upcoming Fall-In convention, scheduled for November 2, and 3, 2012.

The map to the left, based on that included in the excellent Esposito/Elting, Atlas of the Napoleonic Wars, identifies the areas that we are basing the three playing areas upon. These represent three slices of the the larger pie. We have elected to ignore the area to the north and northeast of Borodino, as apart from the incursion by Uvarov and Platov into the flank of Napoleon's positions, there was relatively little or no action in this area. This action was effectively contained by Ornano's cavalry division and Grouchy's III Cavalry corps on the day, and to reflect this, all of these forces have been omitted from the overall army lists that have been prepared for the battle as a whole. Click here for Borodino Scenario Maps

The first decision was to split the overall battle into three definitive sections. We selected the fight around the Fleches, the fight for the Great Redoubt and the fight in the southern sector, around Utitsa. Each area would be represented on a table 6' wide by 10' deep. Over the years our collections have grown considerably, but in order to represent these three actions, we still found it necessary to paint a considerable number of figures. With a few years experience of building faux fur terrains, I offered to build the terrain for two tables, the Fleches and the Redoubt. Whilst David Bonk convinced himself that he would take the plunge and build the Utitsa terrain using faux fur for the first time.

Below are a series of photos of part of the Russian forces from my collection that will be engaged in the games. Figures come from Foundry, Perry, Warlord, Eureka, Elite and Old Glory. I simply love the Perry recently released casualty and apothecary wagons. I think they painted up beautifully, I black undercoat, then use Cel Vinyl paints with Army Painter dip. Figures from David Bonk, John Snead, Tom Garnett, Lyle Bickley, Bob McCaskill and Joe Robert's will be used to complete the forces engaged in these events. Click here for Borodino Scenario Info.

Photos From the Redoubt:

Russian minor victory - Morand's and Broussier's division in shambles, Raevsky's corps in a similar state. The 1/9eme Ligne captured the redoubt, with Broussier severely wounded. Counter-attacked by the 1. bttn. Pernovskii regiment, and ejected with over 400 men throwing down their arms, including the loss of their eagle. The Italian Velite regiment closes to the attack, their second battalion halting 50 paces from the entrenchment, whilst the first battalion forces their way into the redoubt capturing a standard of the Pernovskii regiment. But multiple Russian battalions await orders to counter-attack...... Click here for combat losses from the Redoubt

Faux Fur Terrain Tutorial

I've been making faux fur [Teddy Bear fur] terrain for a number of years at this point. The largest I've attempted at this time was Ligny, which was 111 square feet. A typical terrain, such as the one featured the the photos is 6 x 10, or 60 square feet. Below is a quick tutorial of a typical process I use to prepare a 6 x 10 mat. This was prepared for the Battle of St. Michael, 1809.  I purchase the faux fur online from a company called C&R Crafts. The material comes about 5'-3" wide, and is purchased in 3' increments. A typical 6 x 10, takes four yards of material, which I cut into two pieces. A smaller 5' x 9' terrain, would be 3 yards of material. The material I use is Honey Bone in color with a pile length of about 1". This is suitable for 25/28 mm figures, lower pile material is also available, which I presume is suitable for 15/20 mm figures.

.

Step One:

One half of the terrain mat [5'x6'] brushed out with pins to mark one-foot grid. The gird is important as this is matched against the scale map that I will have made based upon a google aerial, or scale battlefield, map. This ensures accuracy of the final piece, and helps transfer the map features to the fur mat.

The photos of the battle of San Miguel, below, and further down, St. Michael, show the terrain piece in action. Adjusting the location of hills beneath the terrain mat, and altering the building types, or placement of trees, walls, and hedgerows, can alter the appearance of the terrain. By using these methods, I've used this same mat to represent battles in the Tyrol, Spain, Russia, England and the American Colonies.

Ligny - The assault on St. Amand - June, 1815 [20th Anniversary Game]

St.Amand: Turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9

St.Amand - Assaulted by Dn.Lefol and defended by Dn.Steinmetz. The French eventually captured both strong points, also capturing virtually the entire strength of two Fusilier battalions and the attached Schutzen battalion. Steinmetz was wounded and captured himself in the village square outside of the church. The Prussians attempted to retake and relieve Steinmetz's isolated battalions within St.Amand by attacking across the bridge now defended by the French, but failed in each attempt, losing engineer officer Beyer to a severe wound as a consequence.

St.Amand-Long-Prez: Turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9

St.Amand-Long-Prez - Assaulted by Dn.Berthezene and Dn.Habert and defended by Dn.Pirch II. The French successfully captured both strong points south of the Ligny Brook, but were unable to press their advantage to capture the ferme La Haye. The defensive efforts of Dn.Pirch II resulted in the highest percentage casualties amongst any Prussian division, six of nine battalions being used up in their spirited defense.
 

Wagnelee: Turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9

Wagnelee - Assaulted by Dn.Girard and Dn.Tippelskirch. In advance of the Prussian arrival, the French seized the initiative by advancing upon the village of Wagnelee and the bridge to its east, which was masked by a Prussian 12 pdr battery. The opposing artillery engaged in counterbattery fire, with one French half battery losing a cannon and caisson, before being forced to retire. The Prussian infantry occupied the church luring the French to assault across the bridge. On their second attempt, led by GB Piat they were counterattacked by a Prussian Landwehr battalion who successfully pushed the French back from the bridge.

Napoleon released one brigade of the Young Guard to assist in the assault on St. Amand detaching a second to observe a mystery force arriving from the west, whilst Blucher called up three battalions of Dn.Kraft to counterattack the French hold on St. Amand-Long-Prez. But at this point it was clear that the Prussians were tiring and their morale sinking and Blucher took the only course open to him and ordered a withdrawal from their positions. The French were themselves exhausted by their efforts, and would need time to consolidate and form up ready to continue their assault. But with losses heavily against the Prussians Napoleon was in a position to claim a major victory.

Kingswinford - September,1643 [Cold Wars 2011]

 

After Action Report:

Since the Parliamentarian defeat in August at Enville, they have been strongly reinforced with local Midland levies, and two new infantry regiments and a contingent of commanded shot arriving from Cheshire with Wm. Brereton. The Royalist's have added no new regiments, but have raised new levies in Shropshire and Staffordshire to replace their losses. Though outnumbered morale is high in the Royalist camp. Battle opens with both wings of cavalry mutually advancing upon one another. On the Parliamentarian left, the horse bravely await the onslaught of the Royalist horse, and supported by fire from the commanded shot, only trot to engage at the last moment, following the discharge of their front ranks pistols at close quarters. The Royalist horse is undeterred and canters headlong amongst the Parliamentarian horse overthrowing them quickly. The commanded shot attempt to defend themselves, but are ridden down losing three standards to the attacking Royalists. A similar story unfolds on the Parliamentarian right, where the Royalists hold back three troops of horse to turn into the exposed Parliamentarian foot. The Royalist horse now, almost to a man, canter after the broken Parliamentarian horse, not to be seen again until after the battle is over. The foot advance to engage one another, but the Parliamentarian strength in numbers is eliminated as several regiments form hedgehog to protect themselves from the remaining uncommitted Royalist horse. Sensing an opportunity, the Parliamentarian lobsters of Sir Philip Stapleton advance into the rear of the Royalist foot, and charge into the rear of the Shrewsbury artillery company, savagely cutting down the gunners and spiking the two guns, that had been captured at Enville the month before. The Parliamentarian foot could not stand the pressure of the Royalist foot, and broke to the rear, leaving the Royalists claiming their second major victory in so many months. Clearly the Parliamentarian horse need to adopt new tactics, and Essex dispatches his best cavalry lieutenant, Oliver Cromwell, to reorganize the horse before offering battle on the outskirts of Birmingham.

Neumarkt - April 24, 1809 [Cold Wars 2011]

 

After Action Report:

The Bavarian infantry in the center gallantly resisted the Austrian attacks to their left and right. The French cavalry countered the Austrian horse, with Jacquinot feeding squadron after squadron into the fight, until he finally falling mortally wounded during desperate combat. The French 2me Ligne and Voltigeurs of the 3me Ligne arrived in support of the beleaguered Bavarian infantry, who had virtually single-handedly destroyed the two attacking Austrian brigades of Mesko and Hohenfeld. But with the French cavalry on the right exhausted, and Austrian horse on their left threatening to crush the Bavarian and French infantry from the flank, and with Schuller and Weissenwolf still relatively uncommitted, von Wrede ordered an immediate withdrawal to the bridgehead at Neumarkt. The Austrians could rightly claim a major victory, capturing one standard and seven cannon.

St.Michael - May 25, 1809 [Fall-In 2010]

After Action Report:

A very close and hard fought contest between the Austrian and French forces. The outnumbered but qualitatively superior Austrian cavalry outmatched the French Chasseurs wherever they met. The Jagers outshot the IV/35me Ligne in the woods on the Austrian right flank, and in a steady firefight gradually sapped the morale of the French battalion forcing it to retire leaving the woods under Austrian control. The French in a series of frontal and flank columnar attacks steadily drove the Austrian right flank battalions back, relentlessly turning them off the ridge line and back upon the unfordable stream in their rear, where many threw down their arms. The French 62me Ligne then appeared on the Austrian left and stormed the bridge across the Mur and, in a light rain shower, overthrew the conscripts of the defending III. IR 55 battalion. The French infantry was taking control across the field, the exhausted Austrian horse incapable of intervention, but at that moment GdB Seras was captured in combat, and Eugene throwing himself into the fight was mortally struck down with a stomach wound. The loss of Eugene rippled through the French ranks and their infantry, many low in ammunition, others exhausted faltered and began to involuntarily withdraw to their start lines. The Austrians were able to regroup and withdraw safely across the bridge in St. Michael and on towards Leoben - beaten but not completely defeated.

Staffordshire - August, 1643 [Friday Evening Fall-In 2010]

After Action Report:

Approaching from either side of Enville common towards the ridge that separated the two arrayed armies. Both Royalist and Parliamentarians were deployed in a Dutch checker board fashion. But each side quickly drew their second line battalia into the first line. As the brigades and tertias reached the crest of the ridge, the horse launched at one another. The Parliamentarians, deployed in three-rank formation slowed to discharge their pistols immediately prior to contact, whilst the Royalists trotted forward without losing momentum - the result was inevitable, as the Parliamentarians turned about attempting to disengage before contact. The foot in the center on both sides momentarily paused to deliver fire, before charging forward with their pike. The Royalists, though outnumbered, being better equipped with more armor amongst their pike blocks, quickly gained the advantage. the disaster struck as the veteran commander of the Parliamentarian force, Sir Richard Browne, fell severely wounded. At much the same time the commander of the Parliamentarian left wing horse, Thomas Tyrell was mortally wounded. The remaining Parliamentarian officers, struggled to maintain order amongst the rapidly dissolving squadrons and battalia. Even the political and religious fervor of James Dunn and Preacher Tom Morris were unable to stem the break. The engagement had lasted barely above an hour, but the Royalists were clear victors with nearly 700 hundred Parliamentarians counted as prisoners and five cornets and ensigns captured. The threat to Bridgnorth Castle had been eliminated. Governor Sir Lewis Kirke was rightly proud of the efforts of his men, and gave particular credit to the veteran Irish soldiers of Michael Earnley's Regiment of Foot.

Prequel to Quatre Bras, 1815 [The 50th Birthday Game]

This past weekend my wonderful wife pulled off the surprise of my life, by organizing a fantastic game, followed by an amazing party. Apparently the organization has been in the works for almost a year. The night before I almost rumbled the surprise when I found one figure out of place in my basement 'Who's been in my basement?' I bellowed, 'Must have been the ghost', was my wife's plaintive response. In fact, if I'd looked a little closer, I would have found terrain pieces missing and several units of infantry. Friends had traveled from Boston and south of Washington DC for the game and party. My wife was insistent that for once, I got to play. So John Snead was at the helm at the computer. I took the role of Wellington, and command of the Guards infantry brigade. Jeff Word pulled the short straw for command of the French. In all we had eighteen players in attendance. A great time was had by all, but the English lost, with the French gaining a minor victory. Many thanks to John Snead, John Manning, John Spiess, John Covello, John Demeter, Tom Garnett, Tom Cusa, Tom Ballou, Sean, Kieron Potts, Peter Berghane, Frank Luberti, Jeff Word, Phil Spera, Brandon Musler, Scott Monteith, Jim Stanton, Todd Kauderer, and my lovely wife Kelly. Thank you all for such a memorable day! Photos by Jeff..

Shropshire, 1643 [The home game]

This was the third time I have staged the same English Civil War scenario, and in this game we achieved a Royalist major victory - the two previous games hosted at Historicon were, first a Parliamentarian major victory, followed by a Royalist minor victory - which just goes to show, same terrain, same forces but no two games need ever be alike. In this action Parliamentarian foot, not in square, and mounted dragoons learnt that it's not wise to take on Royalist horse. The game lasted three hours and with army morale at 84% for the Royalists and 62% for the Parliamentarians it was a clear Royalist victory, and as it was around lunch time we all headed off to Five Guys for burgers and fries.

Waterloo, June 1815

Waterloo, June 1815 - as recreated by the LSHM Waco Chapter and which won an award at Milleniumcon XII in November 2009. Congratulations to Jim Dunnan and and everyone in Waco. More photos and details at the following Blog: http://mysite.verizon.net/krista.smith/milcon12.htm


Fictional Engagement of Magdeburg, August 1813

The photos below are taken from the game, these were taken by Joe Langer who commanded the Bavarian and Confederation brigades on the Franco-German right. The game resulted in a minor Franco-Bavarian tactical victory, but a major strategic victory. Click Here for briefings, AAR and complete results

Die Strassenkreuzung - Bavaria, April 19, 1809 [Re-fought at Historicon 2009 July 18, 2009]

The photos below are taken from the Saturday early evening game. This game resulted in a major Austrian victory, although the Franco-Bavarians still held all the primary terrain objectives, they had suffered three times the casualties inflicted upon the attacking Austrians. Perhaps the critical moment in the game was the destruction of a majority of the  Wurttemberg forces by the Hungarian infantry on the Austrian left. Click Here for results of early evening game.

The terrain was 6' x 10', and I used, for the first time, Faux Fur or Teddy Bear Fur [TBF]. I was a little intimidated to begin with.... it was a lot of material, but once I'd marked out the terrain features, and made the first few clips with the trimmer, I soon felt [pardon the pun] more comfortable. Then all that was left was the coloring. This I did with camo paints, obtained from Home Depot. The TBF soaks the paint up, and I used about three or four cans for the whole area. The painting took surprisingly little time, I was able to spray what you see in the photos in about one hour. I touched up the roads and lanes by lightly brushing a sandstone acrylic paint, using a 1/4" wide flat head brush. The two buildings I scratch built using foam core and cardboard for the walls and plastic sheet to simulate the pantile roof. They are loosely based upon the farmhouse building at La Haie Sainte and La Belle Alliance, at Waterloo.

Eggmuhl: April 22, 1809 [Re-fought at Historicon 2009 July 17, 2009]

The photos below are taken from the Friday game. This game resulted in a French victory, constant pressure along the line, from all the French and Bavarian forces, ultimately resulted in the defeat of the Austrians. Austrian losses amounted to 5,000 including 40 cannon. French losses were about 2,200. The Austrians could take solace from the fact that none of the French tactical objectives, had been achieved at game end.
