    Much to the wife’s disgust, I’ve been playing with myself in the dining room again… It’s been well over 20 years since I last played any 18th Century battles, so I needed to have a refresher of the rules. I decided upon Mollwitz, as with a bit of squeezing, I can just about fit it onto my dining room table! 🙂

    Lovely spectacle and a super era. I’ll never learn to love those dice and markers, I fear.

    Cheers!  Yes, I always mean to remove dice, tapes, straighten bases, etc before taking photographs, but rarely remember… Unfortunately the markers are a necessity of gameplay, but I always try to make them as unobtrusive as possible; either by using casualty figures, or using the ‘textured’ markers shown here, or by printing them on green card.  Unfortunately, they’re games in play, not dioramas, so needs must. 🙂

    Lovely looking game! I thought those markers looked pretty good actually, as being unobtrusive as markers will ever get (i.e. I may well steal this idea).

    Cheers Whirly!  They’re just pennies coated in PVA glue and sand, then painted.  Hold the pennies in tweezers to avoid coating yourself!  The 1s flip over to reveal 2s, the 3s flip over to 4s and the 5s flip over to either 6s or ‘B’ (for ‘Blown’ cavalry).
