Ottoman invasion of Poland

Phil and I brought down our 28mm Eastern Renaissance figures for a club night game on Friday 29 June 2018.

Phil, Patrick and Noel were on the Russian side, defending a line of redoubts, hills, and streams, on high ground. Rob, Simon, Mike, and Mal, played the French. Set up was not historical, so each side could deploy as they saw fit.
