Napoleonic Caldiero 1805 Battle @ Time Machine 8-26-12

We finally got together to play another Napoleonic game using the Shako II rules and played a scenario out of the 1805 campaign. French vs. Austrians facing off in Italy.
Greg and James led the French, whereas Jacob and myself were on the Austrian side.
The game took place in the basement of the Time Machine on Sunday, August 26th for one of our HAHGS gaming days.
I got there early to set up the table and the Austrian troops minus the Austrian right flank where the Grenadiers were located. Those troopers were on a 'land-lease' basis from Greg's vast arsenal.
Greg also contributed all the French side. Not all were purely French troops, and had t be substituted for Spanish, Saxons, etc. due to being still short in the overall supply among us low-end Nappy players.
There are 38 pictures attached. I will add some more info later. I am running out of time right now. Sorry.


  1. Very nice photos of a handsome game. Your blog gets better with each post. Next you should put captions by some of the photos. Love those Austrian Hussar uniforms!

  2. Looks great, Thomas!

    And I second the comment on the beautiful Hussar regt - my favorite one. Of ourse, If Joe and I paint that huge pile of Foundry Hussars we got at HCon at a nice price, we'll have more Hussar regiments in Connecticut than they had in Austria, LOL.
