Black Powder: Austria vs Russia, somewhere in Galizia Piątek, Lip 23 2021 

Today we played small, fast game in Black Powder with Marian from Maniexite – direct link to his Austrians is here. He played 6th army corps of Hiller,
2nd division of Kottulinski:
– Hoffmeister’s brigade, 31st pulk of Bieniowskis Hungarian infantry.
– Wallmoden’s brigade, 7th pulk of Liechtensteins hussars, 8th pulk of Kienmayers hussars, half battery of 6th pounders guns.
Reserve corps of Liechtenstein:
– 2nd division of Prochaszkas grenadiers, brigade Steyrer composed of Legrad grenadiers from 9, 55 i 56 infantry pulks.
4th army corps of Rozenberg:
– 4th column of Bartenstein, Newstädters brigade, 9th pulk of Czartoryskis German infantry (Galizien).
Awangards of Klenau:
– 1st Jagers batallion.

My Russians were composed of three batallions of infantry from modern day eastern Poland and Bialorussia (former territories of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth), Polish Uhlans in Tzar service and battery of cannons.

We played in centre of Wrocław – Bolter.pl, thank you for table and terrains.

Summary:
it was great, fast game of forces composed of one brigade per side – this game is great in big battles as well as in smaller ones.
– as Marian said many times – forces many times weren’t equal – we weren’t sure if this time they were – it’s observation after the battle. But everyone can imagine 300 of Spartans against much more Persians, Wohlynian cavalry brigade fighting against German panzers during 1939′, defense of Paris against Vikings, battle of Vienna 1683 were besieged capital of Austria held until release force of Poland, German states and Austria itself released city from the siege, Rohan warriors defending Helms Deep, Gotrek and Felix fighting to the last goblin – forces weren’t equal many times. Our history or fantasy – doesn’t matter. Battles weren’t equal. Thank you Marian for those words.
– I will try in the future write something more about this system – at least about orders, as this is that kind of game – when you give order to batallion or brigade you need to tell – march to the crossroads with a chapel, reform into battle column and march to bridge – if you fail, unit can read map and say – that village is not exist, are we on the appropriate road?
– our community is located in Wrocław and we are open for international contacts as well as contacts inside our country – here is our page: Wrocławscy Bonapartyści.
– let’s have nice weekend friends!

Black Powder: Battle of many nations Niedziela, Lip 18 2021 

Today we played a battle which we play monthly – big battle with many participants – there were two Russian brigades my and Michał, Marian’s Austrian brigade, British brigade of Bartosz and on the other side French brigades of Mikołaj, Gargamel’s Italian brigade and Spanish brigade of Grzegorze. Thank you Bolter.pl for terrains and place we played. Our brigades started marching on the roads – each player came from different direction. There were three sides of conflict – Austria and Russia, United Kingdom and Spain and French with Italy. There were also Krzysiek as gamekeeper.

Summary:
It was great game, thanks everyone – will try to update some informations about this battle soon.
– Next time need to split my brigade on two – one composed of infantry and another one of cavalry, as I had all time issues with giving order. Need to paint more cavalry – not sure if I can do it, I have a month.
– in Wrocław we are avaible under this page: Wrocławscy bonapartyści.
– After game with Bartosz we went for some lunch to the nearest pub SOTE – wine pub & food and next to Tacos Locos – hope next time more people will go with us.
