    A few shots of a Zorndorf 1758 game earlier this year. This is why I love the period. Stately lines of determined troops on a wholly manageable scale. Zorndorf was a big battle for the time – yet it is still gamable. This game has one unit representing one regiment.

    The Russian centre and right await the Prussian onslaught.

    Seydlitz’s cavalry massed on the left – the stuff on the red card is ‘off table’.

    Great to see the table at the show in all its glory.

    Fantastic, James! I also like your idea of the red card for denoting off-table units.

    Thanks, Henry.

    I hate looking under the table for boxes of stuff, it’s so much easier to just remove a sheet of thin card, and for a demo game it is every figure to the pumps.

    I hadn’t seen the day of the show pics. Lovely!

    And I may borrow that method of marking for off-table status. Great idea.

    Thanks Mick. It’s a shame it all ended so badly. They’ll be no more visits by me, or my collections, to that show.
