The Russian assault on Azov in 1696

Andrew Rader sent me these pictures of his game of the Russian assault on Azov in 1696. He put it on at Cangames 2005 in Ottawa, Canada, using 6mm figures based on 15mm bases. As I don't do DBR in this scale I found them interesting, and thought it could be of interest to others. The pictures are taken by Andrew, published here by his consent. Andrew describes the game:

"...It was a combined naval and land game based on the Russian assault on Azov in 1696 using 6mm based on 15mm bases.  There was a Russian assault on the Fortress, a cavalry skirmish on the flanks, and a Turkish fleet trying to fight its way past the Russians to bring reinforcements to the fortress... It won the prize for best terrain... The figures are mostly Irregular minis, but the Russian elite Preobrashenky and Semiovski regiments, their mounted infantry (like dragoons), and some artillery are Baccus. The ships are Langton miniatures in 1:1200 scale..."

With a great looking table, nice figures and a sizeable naval contingent as well as the armies, I really liked the visuals of this game. Enjoy!
