wargaming Solferino

It was the bloodiest battle since waterloo .In 1859 Mars was to the good cause and there died a myriad.The wounded were bayoneted where they fell and the peasants robbed the dead and the dying of what they had as night fell.Two armies wandering the plains of Lombardy met by chance and then all hell was let loose
42 mm Figures by Irregular. These are perfect as French Zouaves at solferino. Alongside is how the Legion fought in 1859 although one does wonder if they fought like this in the sweltering heat.Some say they wore blue tunics and white trousers in that Italian summer
