Gallian Lanciers de Saxe Find An Enemy Column

Capitaine Gardier (center left) and Supernumerary Monsieur Briege (center right) of the Lanciers de Saxe observe a column of Hesse-Seewald infantry upon their march within Germania approaching territory held by Marshall Broglie's Gallian Army.

Let's take a closer look shall we - before we ride back to the next line of trees? In the foreground we see a detachment of "Doubleblues" thrown out in front of what apparently is IR#1 followed by the Protzdam Garde Grenadiers. Well, time to ride off and send a courier back to the Marshall. Something is afoot!

Bill,

This, along with your NWF serial photo story, begins to explore a whole new genre of miniature battle storytelling.

I like it very much. Keep it up. (And what a frightening number of Prussians . . . they make a great photo of a marching army . . . it must be those big units).

To quote the scripture, "As terrible as an army with banners..." This is why I like wargaming so much. It lets me experience, even if in a small way, what it must have been like to conduct a cavalry patrol, or a road march, etc. Good Stuff!

I agree.
This is a really nice "diorama" ...
and a big battle seems to be in the wings ...

The collisions of such forces must be truly clarifying, unlike the petty plots and problems of Frankszonia ....
speaking of which ...

Excellently photographed, and a good story in the making as well. Kudos to you, sir.

The first picture with the somewhat blurry columns of troops on the move reminds me of the opening scene in Gettysburg, when "Harrison" is observing the Union army on the march. Great stuff Bill.

Nothing much to add, except I enjoyed the pictures and story. :-)
