Cuddalore - 1st Madras Europeans ./. Mysore

The battle started with an attack of the Madras Europeans on the British left flank who stormed the trenches of the Mysorean army.

On the diorama we showed how the Madras pushed the Mysoreans far away from their positions to open a gap through which the Grenadiers and Highlanders could march and attack the open French flank.

Two of the redoubts the British took

Here in the front corner the fighting went on. See behind them the taken redoubts.

 The Mysoreans tried to make a last stand, attacking the British again.

The cavalry supported their comrades. All figures from Fritz-Figures:-)

I hope you enjoy the photos.

  1. Great to see all those Airfix and Revell (?) plastics put to good use. They come out rather well. A fine diarama overall, too.

  2. Brilliant work, Uwe and friends! I'd love to wargame that period to find out how hard it was to fight those battles.
