Triples 2013 - Battle of Plattville

A rather late update to my blog with pictures of my game from
the recent show in Sheffield.  

We put on the Battle of Plattville set in 1763 as a tribute to the founder of modern Wargaming - Donald Featherstone. The game featured Prince August figures and we used the rules from Dons book War Games, first published in 1962, with a few amendments. Being gamers we came up with more rule ideas over the weekend.  

The game was fun and we all enjoyed the weekend including a nice 'Ruby' on Saturday night.

Certainly spectacular - a great looking battlefield and action! I'm just wondering: did the "Confederates" lose yet again? It seems that the troops on the south side of the river just can't catch a break!
Cheers,

Great to see the 'Gifted Cuirassiers' brought up to fighting strength and in the line of battle.

Great stuff, Mark. I always love to see the PA's get a good workout.

An excellent looking "old school" game and fitting tribute to a scenario that got many of us started. I like the ACW connection with the Gettysburg cemetery gateway.
