Christmas Thoughts

I know we should be thinking of peace on earth and goodwill to all men but we are wargamers there is new set of Napoleonic wargames rules out, Bataille Empire by the redoubtable Herve, and plans are afoot. Just as I was contemplating getting rid of my 28mm French army, wargames celebrity and kestrel fancer Steve Charlton sent me pictures of what he has achieved in God’s own scale and, he is moving over to Bataille Empire.


It’s not quite Bethlehem but I’m sure he has included at least one stable. The models are Charlie Foxtrot and I’m sure you will agree as to their quality.


Built for Sharpe Practice we hope to be hosting Steve’s collection in the not too distant future at Firestorm Games. Bataille Empire “armies” are similar in size to the L’art de la Guerre 200 points armies by the same author. That means that even in 28mm, the armies are affordable and within reach of the average gamer.


The gallant 95th Rifles, guerillas and horse artillery. What a collection Steve has put together!




I can’t wait to see what the New Year brings. Thank you to everyone who has followed and supported the blog over nearly four years now. A massive thank you to all those other bloggers who have always been so supportive and charitable. I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

    • Merry Christmas old boy!
      Not very Christmassy but the detail he includes is amazing. I’ve just bought a guiotene and this has given me all sorts of inspiration- most of it macabre !
      Great to hear from you this year!
