    I know Scotty has done a write up of our game last week but I’ve written an AAR on my blog The Northumbrian Wargamer here
    so I thought I’d pitch in.

    Here are a few pictures as a taster:

    Credit to Chris (one of the other lads who went that day) for the photos.
    I’ll put the second part of the write up later this week.

    The concluding part of the refight sees the pressure of the Prussian assault continuing and a valiant desperate charge by French cavalry trying to save the day.

    A great time was had by all of the lads. If you guy would like to read the compleate write up then procede here
    scrole down to read part one.

    Dave – what are the actual dimensions of the table. It looks quite deep – is it over 6 feet? Excellent looking game.

    Now there’s a thing Henry, I’d have to ask Mick Nichol as it’s his gaming room the lucky sod! Many of us have had to make do with (at best) a table tennis sized table. Mick designed and built this beast about fifteen years ago marked it out with the hexes, flocked the lot and away he went. It’s a real privalige to get up into the boarders to game there, the guy is a great host too.
    Dave.
    P.S. Most of us can just reach to the center but Neal (pictured) struggles as he is an accountant and can’t get his hands out of his pockets!!!!
