Ressurrecting Raab

Well, its been some huge break since my last post and just as long since any real progress has been made on preparations for refighting Raab.

I'm happy to report the board and scenery is nearly complete.

As a teaser, I will post a picture of the model for the Kigs-Meyer farm (see below) - it was the dominant (fortified) built up area on the battlefield. According to my research, it was fortified by the Austrians and a platform built around its perimeter so that the garrison could fire over the high walls that surrounded the farm buildings. Apparently the main building was akin to the famous granary of Essling, famous from the battle of Aspern-Essling.

More to come soon.
