The Road to Rocoux

two weeks time will see me travel to Scotland and visit Charles Grant to refight the battle of Rocoux for another of his forthcoming books.
I have been privileged to participate in a number of these refights and most enjoyable they have been

Rocux is a little different in that Charles wanted to use my British troops so the last few weeks has seen much painting of cavalry, there is now one squadron of Scots Greys to go to complete the 12 squadrons asked for.



Hence the busy paint table - not helped bu my son who suddenly decided to take a break fro the Horus Heresy and start WWII and plonk 30 Panzer Grenadiers and a few Brits on the bench before he left for three weeks to America!

SO its back down now to prepping the last squadron and converting a couple of standard bearers.,

  2. You lucky so and so Graham. Thats a battle I have never fought and have always wanted to. I will be very interested about Charles's account when it gets done.

    1. Robbie,
      thanks. Apart from it being another allied defeat it's quite an intriguing one. I think Charles is focusing on the centre action - hence all the Brits
