On Saturday, the 19th our group of wargame buddies will run a table top game featuring the assault on the redoubts at Borodino. We'll run from 11 am until it's done; there will be thousands ( as in more than 2,000) of 28mm troops on the table, which will include some custom built terrain.
As part of my contribution for the Russian force, I am bringing 4 grenadier battalions, 8 line battalions of infantry, four batteries of guns and six cavalry regiments. In the first photo we see the cavalry column which consists of a Cossack regiment, two Hussar and two Dragoon regiments. If you've read the progress reports (posted from July through October) you seen most of these fellows- although now they sport spiffy basing! The cavalry in this shot are Old Glory.
If you are from the CT or Eastern Mass area, consider coming to the con. There is a surprisingly wide variety of games, the con is a fundraiser for the schools gaming club, there is always an interesting group of flea market items for sale. Did I mention the food is onsite, very reasonable, and helps out the schools PTO? Google 'Ellis Con' for directions. One day, the 19th, from 9am to 9 pm.
