We have been kicking round this idea for a while now and I've just spoken to John Hutton who is organising the OOB. Our aim is to spend the weekend of Sept 8/9 2012 refighting Borodino in 28mm on several large tables using Black Powder. We are now looking for a venue in CHCH (aren't we Poochie) as it is a central location for people coming from other parts of the country.
We will need an insane number of 28mm figures for it including:
- 64 battalions of French and allies
- 44 cavalry regiments
- 63 battalions of Russian infantry
- 21 Cav battalions
+ assorted odds and sods- John assures me it is doable.
So anyone interested in joining us for this madness- and perhaps painting up a few units for it, please feel free to join us.
John's plan is to divide the game into sectors- left/right flanks and centre as well as reserve tables.
People will be welcome to join for the whole weekend, or simply for a few hours but the moer the merrier. It should be a lot of fun.
So how many people can provide green 6x4 GW cloths? we will need about 10 :)
