Inside where a dozen each of French Old Guard and Hungarian Grenadiers firing. I had been short of these figures to make up my 24 figure units.
The JC figures are seen here posing next to a couple of my original figures still wearing my rather poor 70s paint job.
The standard of the demo and participation games was exceptional and with the trade and airy location this is now the best show of the year.
Being rather attracted to things old I rather liked the simplicity of this game using flats from Tony Bath and Peter Guylers collection. The battle of Trimsos from Featherstones book War Games.
There were so many other games on show but I was also taken with this game using Command and Colours Napoleonics.
I also bought a few books. Firstly a couple of Summerfield books on the Prussian Army. These are as new and cost a less than a third of the original price.
I also bought a book on Wellingtons campaign in Southern France for less than a price of a Wargame Magazine. This is a campaign that I know very little about.
I was also particularly pleased to get a new copy of Skrine book Fontenoy on the War of the Austrian. This is Terry Wise produced facsimile and is book 152 of a limited run of 250. This I got for a fiver.
