    This last weekend I had a weekend around Newark playing games! Saturday was a 6mm Franco Prussian War game. Writeup on my blog: http://blog.belisarius.org.uk/2015/03/march-2015-gaming-weekend-part-1.html

    Lots of pics here: http://blog.belisarius.org.uk/fpw-game-2015/nggallery/page/1

    And some teasers:

    It was a great fun game. Thanks to Dave for all the effort. His setup is excellent!

    On Sunday we went for a 28mm Sharp Practice game using our C18th ImagiNations as background.

    Impressive tables. Nice to have a wargame ‘fest’ every now and then. I was trying to find the grid that you used for movement in the 6mm game – but couldn’t. Very nice to get such nice terrain and a grid working together.

    The tiles were 12″ square and the dominant terrain type ‘defined’ each quadrant so it was easy to ‘see’ the grid without any need for markers that would detract from the excellent terrain. I really enjoyed the rules and as the number of bases in each unit defined combat strengths no markers were needed there either. It was a pleasure to play!

    Mm mmmmm that looks gorgeous, I was a bit dubious about the piece on the bridge what with recoil, room to manouvre, etc. But no doubt the artillerists were aware of this as the 2nd piece was sitting in the drink

    This was raised in the game 🙂 We had long discussions about it and the owner insisted it was firmly lashed down with a complex series of ropes and pulleys! Very ingenious those Gateway chaps! I think it only fired once anyway!
