The battle from the French side, a lone French infantry regt Artois, can be seen hiding in the woods. I didn't expect the game to swing around sideways as it did? It was a fairly even game, although the Brits did seem to have a lot more dice throwing luck than the French.
And it was me throwing all the dice as well!!!
Next time I'll try and get some pics.

Today is Don't Throw a 1's 10th Birthday!
Where the hell did those 10 years go?
My first post all that time ago was on Nine Years War Huguenot flags 1184 hits (click link) at the time it created a hell of a lot of interest, receiving absolutely no comments what-so-ever, (I did pick up a few over the years though).
In the 10 years I've manged to post 794 posts, which is an average of 79 posts per year, not bad going? I've have a total of 834 Blog Followers and I've had a whopping 2,279.804 individual visits to my blog!
My top 5 posts are as follows
1. How to Build an Indian Longhouse 56645 hits
2 . Playing Favourites 29822
4. A Prize, A gift and a Guest Post 19430
5. 15mm NYW/League fo Augsberg Photos 17730
If I had to pick 1 post as my favourite its got to be a 15mm Napolonic battle report The Battle of Hal 1815, from back in 2012.
Me and Big Lee were chatting again about the game the other night saying what an utter disaster it was for the French side. Give it a read, its quite ridiculous what happened, if anything It'll make you laugh!!
This is what's great about the blog, we're all getting older, the memory seems be be going, if it wasn't for the blog, I wouldn't be able to rub salt into Lee, Fran and Smithy's nose every now and them.
So I'd advise any gamer to get themselves a blog, its a great help to the hobby.
Once again I just want to say thank you to all my followers, people who take the time and effort to commenters and to all the readers who just like to come and read my guff and look at the pictures!
Remember "Don't Throw a 1", unless you really really need to!
