Battle of the Biscuits! The Volturno (1860)

Early in the life of the BBB project I was in Rome and met up with a fellow wargamer. Ottavio suggested I look at the battle of the Volturno. At that time I was still working my way through the huge epics like Solferino and Koniggratz, so I said that at 25,000-30,000 a side the Volturno was a bit small.

Well, since then we have had plenty of fun fighting Bloody Big Battles that size or smaller. Last night it was the turn of the Volturno. Crispin had created a scenario, painted up redshirted Garibaldini and even made a viaduct.
