Re: Borodino

THE TIN DICTATOR <TinDictator@...>



I doubt there is enough time to order unpainted figures and have them delivered, painted and ready for Labor Day.

Its only 5 weeks away. If you can do that you’re a maniac!


You have Prissians??

Are they prissy Prussians??

Do the other Prussians make fun of them?

Do they wear pink feathers in their hats?


Rolland says he’s working on the Italians.

But time has not been on his side and he’s woefully behind.

So we’re trying to assist where possible.


As I recall, you were light on Saxon Cavalry??

note. my prissian corps only lacks the reerve cav.  and the lutzow freicorps is complete


since you mentioned needing italians, i assume roland is no longer with us

Let me see how I do answering these:

1) Commands will depend on how many people we get. I am thinking we will have 3 or 4 per side so you may end up with an entire Corps. or possibly a Division
2)No requests as far as I know. This will be a multi-day event so you could be a Frenchy one day and a Ruski the next.
3) There is plenty of room for players. No worries about someone else not being able to play. We will have around 6,000 figures (conservative)

On a related note:

I noticed that Rolland has put his French Army and his Austrian Army for sale on TMP. This pprobably means WE NEED ITALIANS! I doubt Mark has enough time to paint a batch of Italians to cover them.  Anyone have anything we can use? I have British and Portuguese and a few Dutch. Not much help but in a pinch......

Just full of questions today!

So in prep for Borodino, What level are we playing at? will each player command a Division, a Corps? Also is there a preliminary head count  and any requested affiliations? I just want to make sure that by me signing up that I am not displacing anyone else :)

I do have a pre-disposition toward the French forces - however I have no qualms in killing them...I play Peninsular Brits and Portuguese so I have no qualms pouring hot lead on the frogs!

If I am the french I would love to command De'Izon's Brigade (I have a personal bone to pick with Tolstoy), or anyone under Davout. 

As the Russians I would like to play as Tuchkov so I can shoot the Poles. in true Russian fashion!

I am very excited about it all.
