Photo dump AAR! Capture the Crossing - PLC vs. Sweden

Kato and I rang in the new year with a battle over a river (thrilling!).
We both had FSP 11 forces, with a large proportion of cavalry. We rolled up the Capture the Crossing scenario, which sends the two skirmish forces at a bridge & ford to take a key river.
My minor reconnaissance advantage bought me a forced march that I made really poor use of. 
The battle was a back and forth affair, as I was able to get some dragoons and Cossack-style across both the bridge and the ford, before summarily being pushed back across the river and routed. It was a really fun game!
The Swedes took the day with a strategic victory (though I at least got the point for having my dragoons holding on for dear life on the enemy side of the river.
To the photos!

Accidental Airbrush Army

Well, I felt like airbrushing something last night, and, in an effort to procrastinate from any/all more time-sensitive projects, I grabbed my ready-to-paint Ottomans. A few hours later between last night and this morning and I am well on my way to finishing them!

Defend the Crossing! Muscovites vs. Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth

I was able to lure my brother up from the wasteland of Virginia for a game. I pulled together two forces quickly and rolled up a scenario. The Polish force was weaker by 1 point, but after rolling 3 potential scenarios (Commander had 3 command points), the only valid option was Defend the Crossing, as the other two had scenario values greater than 1 (the difference in force strength).
As such, the PLC force found itself defending a river crossing against a slightly larger force from the Tsardom.
