Hanau 1813 – coming soon
Roy and I got together yesterday to fight a game based on the Battle of Hanau 1813. It was just the two of us this time so the idea was to keep things small. Well, that was the idea but we still managed to put upwards of 600 Hinton Hunt figures onto a 6’ x 5’ area of table.
Roy commanded the Austro-Bavarian army (yes, he really has managed to knock up an entire Bavarian army since we played Vintage Waterloo) and I commanded the French. The forces were a bit unbalanced with the allies outnumbering the French but I think this helped to contribute to what turned out to be a most enjoyable game.
We played for a full eight turns and the game had a satisfying conclusion – a full battle report will follow!
