More from Playtest #2 Day 1

The Prussians and Russians also got the feature treatment and their shots were of no less caliber!

All these pics were done with my wife's new camera (gift from her mom & dad = so that the grandchildren's pics would go to them often), I have only had this one opportunity to put the camera to use, and it has some great macro functions.

As these really close-up pictures should attest to!

These shots include:

Benningsen (or the mini I am using for him).

Bagration (again, just the mini planned).

Lestocq.

A Prussian Division Commander

Russian Artillery.

Pavlov Grenadiers.


and just for Jeff....


A Prussian unit (pressed into service for the Russians) wearing TRICORNES!
Tell me what you think of the effects?

Don't be surprised, my friend, if those tricorn troops turn out to be among the best on the tabletop.

Everything looks good.

Looks cold Murdock - but then that was the intention wasn't it?

Looks like a swirling fog about their feet...is that a photographic effect, or basing?

Very impressive

Yes Jeff, the ticornes did manage to send some Chasseurs a Cheval, whom had not lost in close combat before, off on their way away from the battlefield, inflicting a massive 5 hits in one half hour of close action!

Thanks grimsby, it was the intention to make one 'feel' cold on looking at these troops.

The 'swirling' or 'blowing snow' effect is caused by some dry ice fog that I had on hand for the 'close-ups' (since the dry ice is rather expensive and perishable).

I am planning to have some on hand for the convention so that the 'close-ups' of the battle actions will be similarly exciting to the eye!
