Big Ole GASLIGHT battle

I need an infusion of Victorian SciFi every few months to function as a human being. Followers of this blog will recognize most of the troops involved. They have long and storied histories. The Rokkitruppen almost always get slaughtered to a man. The L'Roue is near impossible to start. The Unicycle Uhlans are a risky bet at best. I'm almost afraid to paint up new troops.
I guess what I'm saying is, half the fun comes from the knowledge of the shared history of a game we've been playing for almost 20 years. 
 Billy Yank arrives to hold back the Hun.
 The German line advances
 L'Roue starts first turn and unleashes Electro Galvanic fury on the Germans!
 The thin Red Line makes the mistake on lining up on a hill.
 Uhlans roll up
 Klankers trudge forth

 The Lady Hussars tear the Wheel apart.
Lo and behold, the Rokkitruppen land and wipe out a group of British Naval troops. Huzzah! What a recruitment poster for the Imperial Air Korps. 
Another simple game full of classic moments. I'm good for a while now.
