So our game was cut short and our pub session lengthened, which wasn't all bad, but I am suffering a serious case of wargamer's cold turkey. To be compounded as I can't get a game in again until the 22nd.
But at least for then I have Katseljevo-Ablava to look forward to. This is almost the only action in the Russo-Turkish War in which Gorloff guns were used (Russian Gatlings), so I had to write a "Bloody Big Battles" scenario for it. Looks like an interesting fight in its own right, even without the exotic element, so it should be fun. (Scenario in the BBB Yahoo group files as usual.)

Then looking further ahead, the boys will probably fight Coulmiers (Franco-Prussian BBB) while I'm away; and, prompted partly by some discussion on TMP, I have got enthused about the Wilderness (ACW) and have started work on a scenario for that too.
Final footnote for this week: I don't do FaceBook, but if you do, you might want to check out Konstantinos Travlos's "19th Century Warfare and Wargaming" FB page. This is very new but already becoming a nice resource.
