Fontenoy

It has been a while since I posted anything on the blog so here is an update on my demo game I put on at the York Show (Vapnartak).  It was a very busy show but I did get time to get a copy of the Wolfenbbuttel War by Charles S Grant. 

The game featured  my Prince August 40mm armies with traditional Old School terrain. For rules I used a set published last year - Maurice by San Mustafa - so it was a case of Old School look and feel new School rules.     

The game went down well and as with previous outings I received many complementary comments about the Old School set up as well as plenty of question about Maurice which are a pretty good fun set of rules.  

Here a few pictures of the game

Great looking game - sad I could not make this show - how did the rules work ? , what size game are they aimed at ?

Mark,
the game looks fantastic. And I really appreciate that you are resisting the Old School current wave to build larger and larger units. I settled on 24 figure for my WAS/SYW armies, but these days it almost feels that, with units smaller than 36 figures, you are not *cool*. Your are 12-men strong, and they just more than fine. Congratulations on a beautiful game, and thanks for sharing! Adolfo

Hi Mark

As I said on TMP I saw your game at Vapnartak and thought it was the best of the show.

Very nice, can I change my units back to 16 again now?

That looks fine, Mark. Just goes to show the PA's can look good in their units, big or small.
