Brigadier, Sir David Linienblatt crosses River Ales

Brigadier, Sir David Linienblatt and his Aide Capt Brewer cross the pontoon bridge over the River Ales into the Barony of Alesgarden. The St. Pauli Pontooniers and the San Miguel Pioneers labored hard the complete the span.

Sir David's Dragoons utilized the ford to cross the River Ales, as the Saxe-Bearstein Infantry cross the pontoon bridge. Bree's Battery covers the Foreign Legion's river crossing.

Another view of the crossing showing the deployment of the Engineers and the Monte-Cristo Vivandiere supply train. The Frankszonian Infantry are preparing to form column to cross into the Barony of Alesgarden.

As you can see, I'm looking a bit grim and concentrated - but then who wouldn't in the circumstances? ;-)

(Looking good, Bill. Fingers crossed it all works out!)

And more Frankszonian reinforcements are probably quick marching to reinforce Sir David ...

Great little photo-set! I like the pioneers fussing around the bridge!

If you've got some fusilier figures hanging about, Phaulie's Fusils and the Fusiliers v Futile are brigaded under Gen. Phaulie ... (who thinks he's the new Vaubaun, but actually really only understands earthworks ...
Just about any batch of Curassiers could do, I'm afraid, as most of the deployable ones are privately raised units ...

Good to see armies on the move, nicely set out river crossing.

I like the pioneers, the HAT pontoon set looks good too
