Battle lines are drawn, armies deployed, and orders sent out to all of the commanders.
Later today the battle for control of the Solferino center sector begins. With a large, seven player game, played remotely, it would be surprising if the battle is decided in one session. In an inter-Reject rivalry, who will claim victory?
Final preparations for the game are winding down with the last of the new recruits making it to the field of battle. As mentioned in an earlier post, the French have seen limited action in my earlier battles so they lacked a full complement of commanders. On the eve of battle this shortfall has been addressed. Left to-do is the affixing of unit labels. Then, I can sit back and relax. At least until game time, that is.
Off the painting desk today are 15 French mounted officers. They are split between four Corp/Divisional stands and seven brigade commanders. Figures are Old Glory 15s.
