|A great excuse to put a LOT of lovely miniatures onto the table!|
The real gem of this game is the characterful miniatures. Wonderfully sculpted in a cartoonish style, they are a lot of fun and the various special units rules add a wonderfully slapstick and fun layer to the game. Orc Infantry, Dwarves, Elves, Dogs, and Frogs just to name a few, but my favourite were the undead Russian hordes. I got to see a lot of them as my Allied Division went up against John's Undead Division on the left flank of the battlefield.
|Orc Line Infantry|
|John's Russian undead form into line to pour fire into my advancing Division|
|Supported by flying undead Cavalry!|
|My stout Prussian Dwarves|
|My Dog Cuirassiers catch the undead flyers in the funk and destroy them utterly - bwahahah!|
|My flank march arrives on the field to threaten John's left flank|
|The Dogs of War!|
|Wonderful Frogs in column of marsh!|
|My Division crashes into John's line, defeating it in detail and routing his Division - Huzzah! Sadly our combined right flank and centre were then defeated in detail, but I take the morale victory instead :-)|
Thanks to John and Dave for a lot of fun and letting us play with their lovely figures.
