First French officer to 2nd officer (observing the battle in front): 'Are we in a bit of trouble mon ami?'
2nd officer to 1st officer: 'Oui - judging from the noise behind us - we're screwed!'
The courier arrives: 'Well - if you REALLY want to give it to him... '
Bazaine - wishing they'd invented Aspro's in 1870
'I know where the Prussians are - it says so right here on this map!'
Other general: 'Imbecile!' Bazaine: [groan]'Mon Dieu!'
The chair, table and maps were part of the original Foundry set but I added the box with a spare Perry's French officer's sword and kepi. The flocking on the base was a flocking nightmare being about 35C today and being a clumsy old sod I got the muck everywhere. At least the tree turned out OK.
I love the FPW period and have also made up a number of casualty markers for the French included one of my artillery ones like I made for the Prussians. Don't know how if they'll make any difference playing the game but at least like the respective command stands - they'll be good eye-candy for the table - and you can't have too much of that I say!
