Having had another go at 19th century Principles of War, I decided to try out the 18th century set with my early-1700s Russians and Turks. The following pictures show scenes from a solo practice battle that's currently set up on the plan chest in my gaming room.
|The armies - Russians nearest the camera.
|The Russian infantry with the reserve, the Semionovski guards, in the foreground.
|Peter the Great (white horse) ready to lead the Guards into action.
|Russian infantry and artillery.
|Turkish Azabs with the right wing cavalry behind them.
|Turkish Janissaris and artillery.
|The first morale test of the game, caused by long range Turkish artillery fire, led to the route of a battalion
from the Gulitz infantry regiment. I must learn not to roll 20s!
