    Loughton Strike Force put on a game at Colours this year where we depicted the French assaults in the afternoon of the 6th July against the final Austrian held positions in Deutsch-Wagram and on the Russbach Heights during the Battle of Wagram, 1809.

    For the full report see:

    Figures were mainly AB, with a smattering of Old Glory and Minifigs.
    Buildings were a mix of Total Battle Miniatures, old Architectural Hertitage and some Timecast and Hovels.
    Rules were General d’Armee.

    M,

    Colours is always a good day!

    Not too crowded but certainly not sparse on punters either.

    As we run a mixed demo and participation game we easily had room for our three Colours participants to join in the game, one on the Austrian side and two willing French commanders!

    I hope this doesn’t sound as if I’m carping: why is the terrain so dry looking?

    Obviously a great looking game but I’d’ve thought a greener battlefield?

    D,

    It was greener on the day – honest!

    The terrain matt used is a mix of green (mostly) and tan. However when reproduced in photos the green becomes far more brown, if that makes sense.

    I have a green/brown terrain mat that my digital camera decides is mostly brown from time to time. My condolences.

    Thanks. I’ve had my share of colour-correction issues: famously, my ‘licorice all-sorts Gauls’.
