Black Powder in 6mm

Just a short posting this week, last sunday saw Dane putting on a fantastic Napoleonic outing in 6mm over at Wyvern Wargamers.

I have not played a lot of Black Powder but it does work very well for those big games..... plenty of action with Brigades on both sides stalling and not moving on command. Sweeping cavalry charges and bloody infantry fire fights...

After a titanic battle I am pleased to report a Russian victory, with even the cossacks sticking around till the end...


The opening moves. Russians on the left with the Bavarian Cavalry rushing forward in the near right.


The Russians deploy.

It certainly sets me up for the Martian Empires rules and forthcoming outings which are similar in style with the need for commanders to trigger bridgde activations....
Right back to the brushes...

  4. Looks like a great game, very nice figures...thanks for posting the pictures. 6mm lends itself to good looking big battles everything looks so much more 'in scale' on the table top!

    1. Cheers CD.
      It does give you plenty of scope for large scale flanking moves etc, etc.
