NAPOLEONIC SKIRMISH.




A little while back Stephen Danes asked me to take some photo's of my Napoleonic collection, skirmishing, so that he could use some of the pictures in his latest book,' Napoleon and the armies of Mars'. (Before you ask, I don't have any terrain for Mars, he obviously uses photo shop) For a bit of fun I decided to take the pictures in a battle sequence and Stephen could take out whatever pictures he needed for his book.
A small British force are deployed in some fields around a manor house, with orders to hold as long as possible but as the French come on in force, they make a hasty retreat.































My apologies if I got a bit too carried away with so many pictures, as I know it can be quite time consuming viewing, especially if you are visiting other blogs. I must remember,' less is more'.

  5. I agree with my fellow commenters (commentators?). I wouldn't cut out any of the pictures at all.

    I liked your Islandlwana and Rorke's Drift style photoblogs, with lots of pictures and comments on the action. My only request is that you continue with future posts: lots of pictures and excellent narration of the events/action.
