Great Northern War

Now that Gettysburg is all over and done with we can get back to some different periods, instead of ACW.

This weeks game was a Great Northern War game between the Russians and the Swedes.

Chris provided all the troops, mostly painted by Kent from 15mm Paint Shack.

The rules used for this game were Black Powder.

The Russians setup along the road and awaited the Swedish advance.

The cavalry clashes on the Russian left resulted in the Russian cavalry being thrown off the table.

and on the other side of the gun too.

The Swedes lost both melees and both units routed off the table. Next turn saw another two units heading home!

The End!

After the failed attacks of the Swedish foot there was only one foot unit left and a gun along with the cavalry units out on the flanks. The Swedes conceded and abandoned the field!
