British Crimean War Army 1854

 As I have mentioned the Crimean war holds a fascination for me and has long been a favorite of mine to game.  Each of my armies are based on a historical organization at the time of the Battle of the Alma.  The figures are from Wargames Foundry 25mm Crimean War line with a few of the new North Star command figures mixed in.  Flags are from the Flag Dude, which he was kind enough to make for me based on research I provided.  Bases are from the sadly gone Renaissance Ink.  Rules used are "Charge of the Light Brigade" which many may think of as old school but provide an entertaining game while reflecting how I interpreted the Crimean War.  I intend to post a review of the rules in as later post.  But first a few pictures from my collections.
