Sawmill Village

Here a few pictures of my recent Sawmill Village game at the York Wargame show.  


Firstly it was a pleasure to meet Charles S Grant who spent some time chatting to me about the hobby and the game. Charles Wesencraft then strolled over - it was the first time in 12 years that the two had met.    

The game featured my take on the Classic Wargame look using 40mm Prince August figures. I spent the whole day chatting away and was surprised at how well then game was received and how much interest it generated.   

Here are some shots of the game which was a hard fought victory for the Grand Duchy of Calvados over their arch enemy the Electorate of Furstenburg-Lederhosen. 

I am now planning to put on another game using these figures at Triples in Sheffield and hope to  organised a much bigger game using figures from two other gamers collections which will see nearly a 1000 figures on the table - Fontenoy perhaps ?

Looks great, classic one might say. Fontenoy would be good. Perhpas the version as Grant senior laid it out in his book?

We fought the Scenario for Wargamers vaguley Fontenoy version with PA figures and Charge! at Cold Wars a decade ago now.

Don't be surprised at the attention, Dude: that is a very eye catching and attractive set up. I seem to recognise the scenario from somewhere... :)
