Battle of Hofenfreuden

 As summer approaches, and as my teaching duties wind down, I'm looking forward to some quality gaming time with my son who is now able to grasp basic gaming rules. Today we took a couple of sections of "the green mile" to make a 4x6 foot battlefield and I set up a small 40mm Homecast battle that my son and I could fight out over the upcoming weekend in our dining room (as long as the wife can handle it...) [all figures are Prince August 40mm homecast.]


 Regiment Lorraine

 The "Black Horse" (4th Regiment of Horse)
 British 12th Regiment of Foot

 Colonel Gerlach's Jagers...a unit of my 30mm Imaginations ( translated to 40mm)



 The mighty 12th...

The Black Horse advances
British Royal Train of Artillery
Grenadier Company of the 12th Foot

More on the battle as it progresses...

We are using the classic "Charge" Rules by Brigadier peter Young for this fight.

Wonderful stuff. Your collection is growing.

I have just started teaching my 6 year old the basic rules from Charge and we will be setting up a full game for him in the next few months.

He likes the single based figures.

I love the old fashioned appeal of these fellows, and look forward to reading the battle report on publication.

Oh no, don't get me started on 40mm. I've told my wife I'm doing collecting after only 40 yeards and 40,000 figures. Have a great game and please do post a lot of photos...
