|As you can see, this was a very basic presentation. The scenario was one I had developed a few years back, designed to pack a good number of units on a standard 6' x 4' table. Austrians vs. Prussians in 28mm, of course.|
|The Austrians were faced with a weaker Prussian force, which they intended to attack. However, Prussian reserves in the form of a grenadier brigade were on their way.|
|That's Bruce and Paul. The Prussian cavalry threw themselves into a reckless charge to buy time,|
as you can just see in the centre of the photo.
|Our presentation came equal second in the "Most Junk Food Consumed' category.|
My Twix and cup cake were sadly eaten too rapidly to make it into the photo.
|This was the first time the recently modelled Count von Lenzbourg had seen active service in a wargame.|
Here he berates his dithering cavalry commander for lurking in a cowardly manner near the Austrian baseline.
|There is nothing like burger and chips to cheer up a wargamer.|
|My own quickly knocked up display was surrounded by games which had been the result of rather more hard work, and were consequently a bit more impressive. This was an ancients game using the 'To The Strongest' rules.|
|Right next to us was this impressively modelled naval game.|
|It was an unexpected and pleasant surprise to find my old friend Craig was at the show running a participation game of Skirmish Sangin. As usual, his great-looking terrain and professional display kept him busy with interested gamers all day.|
|Another great looking game across the way from us was this Rapid Fire desert game in 20mm. |
It is good to see how these rules have lasted and still have plenty of adherents.
