The command base for my latest SYW Russian unit ' Troitskiy Infantry '.
This will be the 4th infantry battalion out of the 5 required for the scenario that I'm working towards.
The Senario is the 'Combat of St. Ulriich'. Taken from the 'Honours of War' rule book by Osprey.
A small change I have made is to add a gun emplacement on the defenders side of the river, guarding the bridge. I'm also using 30man units. The table will be 7 foot by 5 when fully completed.
The red side: Russians.
1st Bn Troitskiy.
1st Bn Kurinskiy.
1 6pdr Artillery (in the gun emplacement).
1 unit of Russian Currasiers.
The Russians deploy in a holding position on the enemy side of the river and aim to give the attackers a bloody nose before retiring back across the river to defend the bridge.
The blue side: Prussians.
1st Bn, IR19, Markgraf Carl Infantry.
2nd Bn,IR19, Markgraf Carl Infantry.
1st Bn, IR35, Prinz Heinrich von Preußen Fusiliers.
1 x 6 Pounder Artillery.
1 unit of Prussian Hussars.
The Prussians are deployed in march column and their objectives are to destroy the enemy, and take the bridge.
I still have a lot to get done for this scenario but it is taking shape nicely. Hopefully the first game will be in a couple of weeks time. I hope to play this a few times and keep adding to the collection.
