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!

Did those French not see Raiders of the Lost Ark?  Absconding with religious artifacts can end badly.... :D

Really nice, mate!

(Cant help thinking that you should use white dice, though, to help them blend in visually a bit more.  ;) )
