Chainmail with Britains Deetails

The Third Crusade was turning out to be a bit of a disaster - the Turks were about to cross the Rhine!  Luckily Sir King Private Wierd was there with his army of knights.

But were they going to be able to stop the determined Deetails Turks with their new DSG recruits?

They must! 

First, the only bridge across the Rhine must be defended!

But it is stormed!

So Knights do what they do best - they charge!

Elsewhere, the bluffs overlooking the Rhine are surprisingly attacked thanks to the 30 inch charge range of the DSG Light Horse!!

However, The Grand Sultan did not count on the outstanding bravery of the hill's defenders!

O the Archers!  Let their songs of Praise and Glory be sung!

Vicious "Hand-to-Hand" combat rages on in the frigid winter waters of the raging River Rhine!

The tide begins to turn!

Night begins to fall.

And the Grand Sultan has had enough.  He leads his bodyguard off the field of battle muttering something about a bridge too far...

O Yeah, Britains and Chainmail!  A nice way to start off 2014.  Happy New Year!


  1. Great battle....those figures bring back some memories. The climax of my games always involved the chief baddy being trapped beneath the working portcullis of my wooden castle.....happy days.

  2. Thanks, Springinsfeld! I love playing with Britains. Sometimes I wish Britains also made Dwarves and Orcs and Elves and stuff like that too. 54mm is just such a great scale! I love the image you described of your battles - ah, the happy joys of toy soldiers! Thanks for visiting!
