Don’s Grand Armee(s)
I’ve recently received some pictures from Don in the US of his impressive Hinton Hunt armies in action and I thought it might be a nice idea to show some of them here. Don and his group use a variation of the rule-set “Grognards & Grenadiers” using a hex based terrain system and I think the overall effect is very pleasing. The figures are a mixture of both vintage and Clayton produced Hinton Hunt and some Der Kreigspielers - click on the pictures for a closer look.
Storming a village (those are casualty markers on the soldiers heads not giant busbies)
Russians looking like they mean business
Drat and blast – that’s much better than my Austrian flag!
Are those Don’s Cossacks in the distance (Don's Cossacks - geddit?)
Vive le Emperor!
Now, if I could just crank up the painting output maybe I could have armies like this by say 2020?
