The Battle of Stephenson's Depot - 15th June 1863


We had a great little afternoon playing an ACW game...The Battle of Stephenson's Depot. Three brigade per side and plenty or banter between Myself and Dave Hancox...but that is for another time. I will write up the AAR sometime this week, until then please enjoy the images.

Regards

Old Glory Ottoman Infantry


The Ottoman Army has always been a favourite of mine especially during the periods of the 16th and 17th Century. Thus over the last year I have been rebasing a friends Ottoman Army so we can have a few games of Baroque with our other Baroque armies of the period. Recently I have just finished basing two new units of Ottoman Infantry from the very nice Old Glory 25's Ottoman range. These lads are a mix of Ottoman Armoured Infantry and Ottoman Infantry Handgunners. Unfortunately the Ottoman Armoured Infantry only have three different variants so a mix of both packs I think makes for a better looking unit. Leroy Simpson again has done a fantastic job in painting the figures.

In Baroque both units can be massed to give them a little more of a chance on the battlefield other than being just cannon fodder.
