    you find that the miniatures are fantastic clean and full of detail There was so little flash and minimal mould lines that after a very quick spruce up they were being washed ready to paint The only exception to this was the bald guys who had a mould line running down the face and needed a steady hand with the scalpel not to remove the facial features The figures stand 20mm from toe to top of head 2 Painting I will state here and now that the clothing colours I have picked will probably not be historically accurate as I know very little about the period and have limited reference material on the subject However I am reviewing the figure for painting and presentation and not for a history lesson so please forgive me if the colours are wrong First off was my preferred dark grey undercoat and wow these figures have very good detailing well cut clothing hands faces and weapons On went the flesh and the detail cut into the faces was very good each having clear facial expression and the cut made highlighting and toning easy Next went the clothing same as the face followed lastly by

    yep they did it again and rolled to rally on the spot This minor success stemmed some of the French advance More British were now arriving including a Portuguese brigade and De Grays heavy cavalry but over on the very far right another fresh French infantry division arrived Five o clock already 12 turns played and time to call a halt to proceedings for the day On reflection the French had achieved most of their objectives the allies were starting to run out of space and troops they were desperate for their remaining troops to arrive and deploy quickly Oh yep that Spanish brigade did eventually accept the order to go support Albuera on turn 7 just as Gerard s columns reached the ridge crest and routed the Spanish in effect in moving all they had done was offer an exposed flank to the Frenchies I think that most of the people who looked in on the game enjoyed watching the day s action there were some very nice comments made about the game which are always appreciated Home to try and explain the purchases to the Paymaster General real fear at this point Did I really need all those paints the Bavarians the Vikings oh and those few Perry s AWI enough to roof a church oh dear oh dear never mind she might fail her observation role like yep Sunday morning 8 30 I m on my way It actually happened HQ failed its spotting role Actual my dear wife was out walking the dog but it s the same thing that means I can get away with additional Sunday purchases should I see that really needed odd item or so I arrived at the show fresh and ready for battle at nine most of the guys were there or arriving so we decided to have a heads up on both sides and plan the day s operations I can t comment on the French plans as for the allies we agreed to get the De Greys British heavy cavalry into the small French light brigade over near Albuera itself and then try to get round the back of the front of the ridge I new what was expected of me In the centre pull out the Spanish deploy a strong British line and let the Portuguese launch a counter attack in support of the heavy cavalry Over to the right the British fusiliers were due to arrive on the first turn so they would have to stem the tide of blue We all agreed a hard days fighting the only secure point on our whole front was the village itself Battle commenced with the British taking the initiative order changes required and Brigade actions completed and De Grey s heavy Cavalry brigade successfully requested the Light dragoons attached to Von Alton were released back to his command The British Fusiliers arrived on the British right in line as the British line battalions started deploying into line on

    also wants realistic and well made terrain for them to fight over The GW approach has been to develop the whole package and they have always encouraged excellence in terrain features as well as in the figures themselves This publication builds on this already succesful strategy by revealing a host of tips and shortcuts for producing professional standard terrain Everything is covered in detail and on a step by step basis so the process can be undertaken fairly easily by everyone and some of the projects are great for grown ups to undertake with their kids For those who already create their own terrain there are loads of ideas that may be new to you and techniques that you may wish to experiment with I particularly like thr inclusion of a variety of Tip boxes especially welcome being the health and safety advice I was particularly impressed by the section covering the construction of buildings The Building menu includes the following stages and options Drawing the plan Dimensions The Shell Making the house stonework wattle and daub timber timber brick corrugated iron concrete cloth Roofs Tile sheet metal pantile thatch timber felt Windows suttered leaded masonry gothic etc etc If

    after all they were not line of battle troops and are unlikely to feature alongside our treasured redcoats Indeed we know from such contemporary sources as Napier that these fellows were little less than brigands who would simply fade away in the face of organised French resistance Well thank God that this little volume seeks to set the record straight By tracing the origins of these patriotic bands to the tough seasoned remnants of the badly led and organised Spanish Regular forces and to the almost tribal communities of hardy mountain men who lived a life ruled by personal honour the flash of a musket shot or whisper of a knife in the sunlight we are given an insight into the reality behind these fighters I was not aware to the extent that the guerillas provided with uniforms and arms by the British formed regular divisions that fought alongside the Allied troops in the later Peninsular battlefields The chapters also include some fascinating details about the guerilla commanders I was already familiar with Don Julian Sanchez who operated on the Portugese border in the region around Cuidad Rodrigo and whose cavalry participated in a number of actions alongside the British

    usually growing rapidly in periods of war and then either being cut back to a small cadre or dissolved once peace came What is particularly interesting is the description of the organisation of some of these light corps with both mounted and foot elements sometimes in the same company and the fact that some had their own light artillery and even companies of workmen It also covers units raised for mountain warfare Uniform details are given for some of the units though not all The book concludes with a brief summary of the history of light units up to 1776 and some useful tables showing which units were in existence at particular times useful for settling those arguments about how many light units can be deployed in a particular game At the back is a brief glossary of French military terms There are one or two small slips in the production of the book for example in one of the tables and some of the diagrams but these are fairly obvious What the book does not cover is anything on the tactical use of these units or their history in combat though it does indicate which army or theatre a

    fear or fury Everyone I suppose will use these minutes to look back to hear music and recall what we were doing and saying that year during our last few months as people near the sucking mouth of the day that swallowed us all into the stomach of a war Now we are in it and no more people just little pieces of food swirling in an uncomfortable digestive journey what we said and did then has a slightly fairytale quality There is an excitement in seeing our ghosts wandering The final stanza of this poem is incomplete Keith Douglas D Day and death On 6 April he was moved to a top security camp for final training in sea borne invasion Exactly two months later he was in command of a tank troop in the main assault on Gold Beach in Normandy As he waited to embark on the journey across the Channel he wrote Actors waiting in the wings of Europe He never finished the poem The regiment helped liberate Bayeux and then on D Day 3 arrived outside the little village of St Pierre The 24 year old Douglas and a comrade left their tank and walked
