Title: Retreat minis,Russia 1812.Rebels and Patriots,Updated 03/08/2022.
Post by: Romark on June 03, 2019, 08:28:10 AM
Hi
My first painted mins after an enforced break due to "real life".
Just to get back into the swing of things I decided to paint up the Alternative Armies abandoned beer wagon and Warlord Games Marshal Ney mini.
Both were fun and just what I needed after a break from the hobby.
The wagon is very nice and with the right paint job should do for a multitude of periods as an objective or just table dressing.
Thanks for looking in  :)

Always nice to have table clutter.
Nice to hide behind & great objective if it is BEER!
Interesting to see how it effects the unit that gets to it first.
I am reminded of Asterix in Britain, where the Legionaries are
busy testing the Britons' 'warm beer' looking to find the one that
contains the magic potion. the line I most remember is,
'Dish his by marrel!'

A great way to get back into it. Never seen that wagon before, its great marker/terrain piece. Ney ain't too shabby either ;D

Where are all the looters?
A wagon like that, left alone,
stuff would be gone in no time. ;)

I also have that Alternative Armies model wagon and really should get around to painting it!

I thought your painting of the wagon and Ney was great and it may be just the push I was looking for.

Thank you for posting the images.

Some Russian bases added.
A base of Russian peasants could represent a skirmishing unit or a small unit of "natives" for R and P games and the Jagers a skirmish unit or a small light infantry unit.Next up another base of peasants.
Thanks for looking in :)

Well, this is all looking a bit splendid. Lovely work mate. I bottled basing my Russian 1812 stuff up in a winter theme and went with the dry and dusty advance instead. Your winter stuff just pops more though.

Ran a game tonight,umpired for Jeff and Meirion1955,used the Rebel and Patriot rules by Osprey.
French were bivouacked in the houses and had to beat off the Russian troops who were trying to set them alight.
Managed to get two games in ,both closely contested.The guys swopped sides at the interval,honours even at close of play.

Aar of tonight's game,French trying to reach safety but having to run the gauntlet of angry Russians.
Pic 1. French starting position.
Pic 2. Russian troops lie in wait.
Pic 3. French cavalry abandoning their infantry and making a dash for it!
Pic 4. French casualties mounting from the incessant sniping.
Pic 5. Looking sticky for Ney and the other unit which routed and took the Marshal's unit with it!
Rolling on the casualty table Ney recieved a severe wound but will recover ,however, he'll never play the violin again  :o lol
Pic 6. Where'd everyone go? French skirmishers, abandoned by the cowardly cavalry and Ney's retreating units , are left to their icy fate  :(
All in all an enjoyable game with the Russians scoring a win with 7 points to 2.
Thanks for looking in  :)

A really good project this.  The main reason I bought the black powder Clash of Eagles supplement was to ogle the winter retreat pictures in it.  These look as good and having not seen this game system played out, I’m liking the basing.  Every base is its own vignette making for a striking looking set of forces.  Great scenery too.

Yes, great to see the group shots. I'm very impressed with this project. If you're interested, there is an excellent book on the Russian campaign by Adam Zamoyski called '1812 Napoleon's Fatal March on Moscow'.

Another Retreat from Moscow game tonight,OHW rules,scenario five, Bridgehead.

Thanks Keith , one of the figures I haven’t got . If you’re looking for a suitable read , while painting these figures, I can recommend 1812 Napoleon’s Invasion of Russia by Paul Britten Austin . A Paperback trilogy under one cover which I picked up from EBay .  Three books in one The March on Moscow , Napoleon in Moscow , and The Great Retreat. It’s a tapestry of eyewitness accounts which reads almost , like a movie script . Happy Painting . 😁

A small update on this collection ,delay enforced by "real life" :?
I bought a sprue of plastic French infantry ,by Warlord Games off Caliver, to add a couple of men to make up a twelve figure Shock unit for Rebels and Patriots to the French Engineers in the last post,these are the two in blue to the left of the group.
With the remaining figures from the sprue I swopped out the heads with some spare Perry's and made up another base of French to add to the collection.
Hopefully these will see a game shortly  :)
Cheers.

Tonight's game of Rebels and Patriots, we finally played the Bridge to Victory scenario,French Engineers attempting to span the river (pic no.3), with the Russians tasked with trying to stop them.
A close game ending in a Russian victory,a bonus being their artillery causing Ney ,who was leading from the front (pic no.1), to become a casualty and being carried from the field of battle severely wounded. Urrah!
Thanks for looking in  :)

Small update,
A couple of bases of abandoned equipment pieces,gun and limber and supply wagon,from War bases and a couple of casualty figures.
Will use the equipment as scenic items to decorate the gaming table or can do double duty as scenario objectives perhaps? The casualties as permanent disorder markers?
Next up some Russian Dragoons as Shock cavalry for Rebels and Patriot games.

Excellent, Keith , you’re amassing quite a collection. Russian Dragoons in greatcoats , the sulphur yellow facings contrast nicely with the green uniforms. The carts are little gems , I particularly like the tarpaulin, pulled back , and the barrels spilling off the base .  I’m wondering which other units you have in the pipeline......?

Hi Colin,hope all is well with you and yours? :)
Yep,growing slowly but surely :)
The Perry's have just released some greatcoated Russians incl some Pavlov Grenadiers in mitre headgear, they're just the job for the Russian Shock Troops for R and P games.
Loads more to add in the future,Russian hussars wearing pelisse are on the list too ! :)

Pictures of tonight's game.Scenario A from Rebels and Patriots rulebook.
Sorry for the poor picture quality,my tablet is not the best  :(
Pic 1. Russian forces advance to deny the French an opportunity to reach the supply wagon bravely led by my freshly painted Dragoon unit which naturally became the first unit destroyed by the French lol
Pic 2.the French centre line unit reach the broken wagon and start scoring victory points.The musket at the rear of the unit is a first -fire marker.
Pic 3. The Russian advance led by the Jaegers approaches the wagon.
Pic 4.a rear view of the victorious Russian forces after beating back the French centre line unit.
Another good game with the French enjoying initial successes but the centre column was destroyed and caused some unfavourable morale results which the French player struggled to recover from.
In the end  Russian victory 5-2 Urrah!

I have always wanted to play a retreat from Moscow Napoleonic-themed game - so this has really sparked my interest. Your French, in particular, certainly look the part.

I would not have thought of using Rebels and Patriots for such a theme - why did you decide on these rules? I have played these rules for ACW and AWI games and enjoyed them.

I have been considering Drums and Shakos as well as Fistful of Lead Horse and Musket for small Napoleonic games. Many seem to go for TFL Sharpe Practice, which I found require some effort.

Certainly house rules for weather, fatigue and lack of ammunition can be fun here I would imagine...

I think this graph from https://www.britannica.com/event/Napoleonic-Wars/The-Austrian-attempt-at-mediation, brings home the full horror facing the French army in their retreat...

(https://cdn.britannica.com/87/75087-050-243A02EA/size-army-Napoleon-campaign-retreat-lines-advance-1869.jpg)

Given descriptions such as these...

https://psource.sitehost.iu.edu/PDF/Archive%20Articles/Spring2011/LynchBennettArticle.pdf

One could have a game of French fighting among themselves for resources like food.

Certainly presents loads of skirmish opportunities. The reality of war certainly offers more horror than a game like Silver Bayonet can. lol

Interesting terrain options exist too - evidently at one point during the retreat frozen horse legs were being used as markers to show the way home...

Thanks for taking time to reply Golgotha,pleased you like the minis 👍
We've gamed using the Rampant series since their release and this was a natural progression,the rules are designed for this period so a no brainer really.
Only ever dabbled in Drums and Shakos and FFoL,don't like SP2 but I know all three are very popular :)
Thanks for the graph,it certainly brings home the ghastliness the troops must have endured and the  attrition rates it indicates are truly horrific.

Yep, the scenarios are fun , it helps tho' if you're playing with mates and any contentious decisions aren't  the being and end all! It's just about rolling dice and enjoying each others company.

Pictures from last night's game of Rebels and Patriots.
After overnighting in a Russian village and discovering the Holy Icon of the Venerable Isaak of Ukkert,beneath the church floorboards , the looting French determine to scarper with the treasure.
The angry locals,with some military assistance , are trying to stop them escaping and recover the Icon.
Pic 1.The French preparing to leave the village.
Pic 2.Part of the Russian blocking force,guided by the villagers.
Pic 3.Russian Jagers not faring well in the woods.
Pic 4.French cavalry vanguard.
Pic 5.Russian infantry,not doing very well too on the French flank,minor casualties but terrible morale and rally dice.
Pic 6.French light infantry "escorting" the looted icon off the board.
Another fun game ending in favour of the French who ,comfortably in the end, exited the board with the treasure and thereby winning the game,Vive L'Emperor!
