We decided to play a Song of Drums and Shakos Napoleonic skirmish and decided to go exotic so headed to the Balkans. Russians vs Ottomans!

We played the Supply Convoy Ambush scenario from the More Song of Drums and Shakos Rules. It all looked easy for the Russians but the wheels fell off during turn one and the initiative turned over early! Given the opportunity a sudden rush of Ottomans looked on the point of overwhelming the Tsar's men but the defenders held on. Beset from two directions and even though there just seemed never to be enough men to cover both avenues of attack the Russians continued to inflict casualties on the Bashi Bazouks. In a violent seesawing five turn game either side could win as both took casualties at an alarming rate. In the end the Ottomans with the initiative on turn five and inflicted a couple of crucial hits that put the Russians to flight.
