This was not the only motivator for the parade. Over dinner, we began discussing the next game to tackle. While the debut of my Russians and Natives was planned but aborted in November, Kevin suggested we try again for a December start. Sounds good to me!Kevin will be hosting the game and rumors abound of a great terrain building project going on in Kevin's workshop. He makes handsome and intricate terrain pieces so I look forward to seeing what he developed for us to fight over. My hope is that the Russians are not obligated to attack a strong fortress until they have been tested in open combat first.
- 3 x Russian Infantry Battalions
- 1 x Russian Hussar Regiment
- 2 x Russian Cossack Regiments
- 1 x Russian Lancer Regiment
- 2 x Russian Cossack guns
- 1 x Sikh Cavalry Regiment
- 1 x Afghan Irregular Cavalry Regiment
- 3 x Native guns
- 4 x Sikh Infantry Battalions
That is quite a sizable force! Of course, not all must see battle but the OB is laid out for consideration. Perhaps by December one more Russian Infantry battalion can be mustered? Maybe a Native Emir can be found to provide a local liaison? Figures are all Wargames Foundry.
