Eugene's IV Corps: Ready for Borodino!

Posted by Rosbif on 01 Jan 2014, 09:11

Finally finished! :-D

The game starts tomorrow so I only just squeaked in with my final artillery stand last night. Today I spent attaching labels to the movement trays and packing the toolboxes.

I'll be taking lots of photos for my blog, and I'll post some here as well.

I wish that when I opened my tool box it looked like that. Fantastic bunch of figures.

:oops: It's been a while since our Borodino game, and I realise I haven't shown my figures in action, sorry!

IV Corps had a relatively quiet game guarding the northern flank, as the Cossacks didn't make an appearance and most of the action was in the centre and south. It turned out to be a bit of a stalemate, which meant a Russian victory in effect, as the Russians were in better condition on their home soil. Oh, well; C'est le guerre!

Here's some images of my figures in action and the links to the blog posts.

@ Rosbif.

Very nice work.

Could you list which sets you used for your Italians?

@ Ochoin,

I only had one division of Italians and they were Guard infantry. I used Zvezda French Grenadiers and HaT French Guard Carabiniers and HaT French light infantry Carabiniers and Zvezda French Grenadiers as velites and HaT French light infantry Chasseurs with their epaulets shaved off as Conscripts of the Guard.

Italeri dragoons featured as Guard Dragoons and Draogons de la Reina and I also used Italeri dragoons with bicorne head conversions as Guards of Honour. They weren't technically correct as the uniform had changed by 1812, but I had them left over form our Wagram game.

For artillery, I used mainly Zvezda French artillery figures.
