Charge of the ... Brigade

Well, everybody knows about the charge of the gallant 600 (or 680 as they really where).
A great feat of arms in British history - but without success.

But how knows about the charge of Bredow's Brigade of nearly 800 Prussian cavalry (Cuirassiers and Ulans) at the battle of Mars la tour?

They charged several lines of French infantry, artillery an cavalry and broke through them.
The Cuirassiers lost 7 officers, 189 men and 209 horses, the Ulans lost 9 Officers, 174 men and 200 horses.

The difference? The Germans succeeded in their task:-)

Here a diorama of flat to this subject.

Samurai artillery and siege troops from Massimo

These guys he has done for Thomas's DT range in our shop.

I always thought I am the stubborn one who pushes a range forward with my Wellington in India.

But Thomas is much tougher than me, one figure after another for the Samurai invasion of Korea 1592...
