Last Nights Prussian Disaster

My first home gaming session for a while last night was a complete disaster.
My Prussians had not been on the table for quite a while and last night faced off against Karls Austrians.
I got my arse completely whupped.
I can whinge on about my shocking dice rolls and Karls brilliant dice rolls, but in the end I was soundly defeated.
Well done to Karl with his Austrians, I was totally outgunned, out played, out diced & out cavalried from the SYW master himself.
I think I will stick with my Russians in future, haha, more bloody guns.
One thing I learned from last night.
No matter how good and expensive the cavalry are, they are crap if they wont charge.
Great game though, a few pics of the forces from the game.

  1. Jolly good. Which rules did you use?

    1. Thanks Seb, We use a set I devised myself. A bit of a cross between General de Bridage & Fire & Fury.
      It works very well and has a points system for competitive games.

  2. Great looking troops. Better luck next time! ;-)

  3. great looking game, the figures are stunning

  4. Thanks Guys.
    We love the SYW period and have most armies from the period.
    These were all painted by myself, a good few years back when I could see what I was painting, haha.
