Sunday 22nd Aug - Napoleonic's Fortune & Glory

This was the last game, of three, we played over the weekend of the 21/22 Aug 10. All games we played using Andrew Parr's great set of rules 'Fortune & Glory'. The game on this day was played by myself, as the Spanish, and Victor Perry, as the French. The Spanish are all Front Rank Miniatures and the French were a mix of Elite Miniatures and Perry's all very nice figures. The rules allow for quick play and always ends with a result, not like some games I have played where they seem to go for hours before anyone actually fights and causes causalities. But hopefully Andrew will have the rules finished and published in the not too distant future. Anyway enjoy the images and happy blogging........Vinnie




Spanish Light Infantry hold the orchid..love these guys...lots of colour
The Armies deploy.

Elite Miniatures French Artillery Battery, painted as Italians

Swiss - Elite Miniatures

Liner formation the only true way to fight???

My Spanish march into the fire of the Italian gun battery

Light Infantry cover the advance of a Spanish Swiss Battalion

Two Swiss battalions in French service. One Perry the other Elite Miniatures

I I wanted to put these two images in to show you the objective markers we use in Fortune & Glory. The flags add a little more colour to the game, I think?

Each side has the opportunity to place out objectives. We used that nations flags to represent this.



My re-based Italians. All Elite Miniatures

Lucky French Dragoons and an unlucky Spanish square. My guys were already shaken and soon broke....but

My reserves came on and soon charged the Dragoon in the flank. Killing many and forcing them to route.
