Sharp Practice: Russia vs Wittenberg Poniedziałek, Lip 26 2021 

Today we started new campaing with Krzysiek – during last one my Russians did not found moonshine recipe, so they changed area. Last time we played Russian – French campaign, now we started with Russia vs Wittenberg.

I guess that if you want to have fun from cavalry – u need to take them more – they are really cheap – group of 8 costs 5 points plus leader in case of uhlans. Maybe two groups of 16 can do special things.
– we played on 61 points in
– Sharp Practice is great system for narrative playing – one Krzysiek leaders broke his leg, other one was heavily wounded by Russian Jagers bullet.

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 –, thank you for table and terrains.

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 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.

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.

Black Powder: Austrians vs Russians Piątek, Lip 9 2021 

Today we played with Marian from Maniexite a game in Thank you Rafał and Piotr for help with terrains. Any time, any way – good game.

fast and nice game won by Marian Austrians.
– lost of my main batallion happened too fast.

Black Powder: UK vs Russia – smaller games were tested Niedziela, Lip 4 2021 

With Damian we played last Friday two games – armies were small and the games were great. Smaller battles can be good in this system as well as bigger ones. We played in in Wrocław.

– thank you Damian for a game, Piotrek and Rafał for everything best in It was a best part of this fucking weekend.

Hope to see you again Bafik, my four leg friend Sobota, Lip 3 2021 

With Damian we played two nice games on Friday – both games were great, then everything worst happened in my life. I had to go to meet my cousin and his girlfriend – jet to get to them I went home before, to leave miniatures. At home I started looking for my cat Bafik – one of three of my cats. I looked in bathroom, then around a flat which is big one, then came back again to toilet, to find Bafik on the floor – I guess he was hiding well in bathroom. Tried to look on him, but he looked like he needs a help – after I saw that he is crying I runned with him to veterinarian. In first veterinarian I spend two hours – they checked his blood and temperature – both were bad and low – they say, that I should do some more in other veterinarian – like checking if there is no open wound inside etc. We went to another one and they checked more things, because they have possibility to do it. I agreed for transfussion of blood and left him in hospital for a night and next day. It was a chance for him, I believed in it, as document’s said – transfussion was succesfull.

Trying to find hope I started assembling church on 2:00, I cannot slept. Few hours later, around 7:00 I started cleaning, then did some shopping and came back home. Went to bed around 11:00, as I wasn’t sleeping. Around 12:00 phone called, that there are problems with Bafik, I was scared. Then sometime later they called again, to tell me, that Bafik heart stopped working after they tried to make it workable.

Black Powder: Hold the ground! Sobota, Czer 26 2021 

Today we played a bigger battle in Black Powder. There were two manors – one held by my Russians and another held by Gargamels Italians. There were two British – forces of Damian and Tomek – my Russians were on their side. There were Marians French, Kris Württemberg and Barteks Neapolitanians and Würzburg. I don’t remember how manors were threated at the end.

– Black Powder is really nice game, thank you to my game dealer Marian – I’m involved, jet not so fast with painting – unhapilly there is Cyberpunk 2077 which is blocker.
-I guess that we have a chance to build great community in all systems related to Black Powder era – I mean Black Powder, Sharp Practice etc.
– from Bartek we know, that in Praga there is local community playing Black Powder, hope we can find a contact with them.
– thanks for Rafał for terrains and for place to play.
– thank you Bartek, Damian, Grzesiek, Krzysiek, Marian and Tomek for great game.
Bistro Narożnik have great dumplings – they are my favourite pub on Nadodrze in Wrocław. Great that they survived plandemy.
– I want to support our hobby in Wrocław –,, Ada i Aga – whenever we will play, I will add it under raport. I miss Centrum Gier Bitewnych, old Bard and Sfan, but they got great replacement.

Black Powder: Polish Uhlan Regiment – Russian Empire Wtorek, Czer 8 2021 

After painting batallion of Russian infantry year ago, I started investigating if there were any Polish units in Russian army and I discovered, that there were Polish uhlans. It was fast decision – I wanted to have them in my Tzar army. Many thanks to friend from Maniexite for help in case of sending me this URL and then great pictures of different uhlan units uniforms in Russian Empire army (if I want more uhlans, next one unit will be Wohlynian Uhlans) – I added picture of Polish uhlans I got at the end. As we have discussion on our FB group about banners in light cavalry, I will give standard bearer banner I found here. First unit for light cavalry brigade is finished, more to be done in the future.

Black Powder: Unexpected alliance Sobota, Maj 29 2021 

Saturday 29.05.2021 we played game with Marian, Jędrzej and me on one side (French, Polish, Russian) and Tomek and Damian on the British/Hannoverian side. Each side had six brigades. I assume that Tzar recognized Napoleon reign and splited Europe beetwen them – but there were still United Kingdom.

– nice game with many miniatures, need to finish my Russian brigade by adding one more batallion.
– do not roll before giving unit order.
– hope to have more painted soldiers next time, including maybe Russian uhlans.

Black Powder: First game Sobota, Mar 20 2021 

Today I played my first game in Black Powder and first game in Bolter shop. We played three on three in scenario when main object is to secure and held monastery. As I don’t have too many painted Russians I used borrowed models plus my only painted battalion with command group. It was interesting game. I played with Damian (Portuguese) and Rafał (British) vs Adam (Vistula Legion), Marian and Mikołaj (French).

– nice return to Napoleonic era. I guess it could be good idea to read about those times and units.
– game written by Rick Priestley and Jerwish Johnson cannot be bad and is really nice, a little bit different to games I know.
– shame on my, that my army is not painted with exception of commander, infantry batallion and two cannons. Need to finish some WFB and go back to Black Powder.
– hopefully it’s not last game. We played this game in Wrocław, Lower Silesia – there is group on Facebook – Wrocławscy Bonapartyści.
– my first game in Bolter, first game in Black Powder. List of nice places to play in Wrocław extended – as I like all time to play in (I returned to playing by ordering from them WFB/Bolt Action before AoS started) and in Aga and Ada, I hope to return to Bolter, at least to play and learn Black Powder.
