Italian wars of the 1860s

First outing last night for Adrian's new armies for the Wars of Italian Unification - Neopolitan Piedmontese,  so just  a few photos of the action.

The Neopolitans attack a town sector... they were summarily repulsed.. ouch.


Had to photograph this (for me this is a rarity..) - a Neopolitan M5 Shock unit went into the attack, four combat dice needing 5s or 6s to it... here's the roll.. made Adrian's eyes water, I can tell you.


That unit was then attacked by 3 units of Piedmontose cavalry. Fortunately they boys stood their ground and were just recoiled (it could have been much worse!!).


Lastly just a couple of shots of Adrian's units alongside some of his beautifully hand made Italian buildings.




Testing the 'Warpath' rules

The Epic Armageddon armies languish in the drawer .. GW Space Marines of old, rarely used in the decade or more that I have owned them. Whe...
