The Battle of Beaumont 1870 - Franco-Prussian action in the shed-o-war

Over the weekend the Rejects got together for another game of 'They Died for Glory' refighting part of the Battle of Beaumont which took place during the Franco-Prussian War. The game commenced a few hours into the start of the battle as the French began a fighting withdrawal and the Prussians did their utmost to catch and destroy this Corp before it crossed the Meuse. 

I was going to post a long, detailed battle report here...but I'm trying to knock a Quick Strike Battle report video instead. So in the meantime, I highly recommend checking out Richard's Blog My Wargaming Habit and his posts on the prep for the game and a review of the battle as it played out. I'm hoping to have my video ready by Friday or Saturday and of course, I will post a link to that here when I have it completed. In the meantime here are a couple of 'teaser' pictures of the game. 


  1. Excellent photos of the battlefield, Lee. I await the movie...

  2. Great photos Lee. Can't wait to see the video.

  3. Very impressive, thanks!
