A few weeks back we asked our followers to let us know what project they wanted us to work on next. We had a fairly good response and the overwhelming majority voted for us to work on one of the few “classic” Napoleonic clashes that we’ve not yet tackled – the Battle of Borodino for “Blücher” by Sam Mustafa.
The Battle of Borodino took place on the 7th September, 1812 during Napoleons ill-fated invasion of Russia and is infamous as the deadliest day of the Napoleonic Wars and the bloodiest single day in the history of warfare until the First Battle of the Marne in 1914.
We’ve already started gathering the reference information together (normally starting with the maps and OoB’s) and will progress this over the coming weeks. It may take a little longer than usual to get finished as the club are focussing on putting the finishing touches to their D-Day game which is due to be played out on the weekend of the 4th – 6th June.
You can rest assured though, we’ll give it the same attention to detail as you’ve come to expect – hopefully it’ll be worth the wait!
