The pictures - and remember my thoughts on what needs to be reviewed are at the end
1. The Set Up
|200 tables in four rows down the hall|
|The topped with a very large Battlemat|
On top of the battle mat were placed the buildings
As figures arrived they were catalogued before being sent to the front....believe it or not the chap in the centre used to be the Chief Exec of a business I used to work for...its a small world
By the following day there were hundreds of boxes...well done to the team that managed this.
That afternoon and the following morning I was able to sneak in and get some pictures before the crowds arrived. Each brigade and division had a card denoting its starting position on the table. The Prussians are massed on tables at the back of the room
|The Prussians (one of two tables)|
|The French started to arrive|
You might notice the colours of the tshirts - blue for French, Red for Allies, Green for Prussians, and White for Umpires
|There is an historical fiction writer in this picture and I think he was quite impressed that I I had read his books|
The players briefing by Tony Pollard on day 1
Tony has been taking pictures of Napoleon's command stand all round the world over the past year - managed to get him to pose for a picture of it at the game itself
The Great Game
All the following pictures are of the Great Game
Some of these pictures were taken in the breaks when nobody was around
That said, it was a fine game to watch and I know all participants had a great time.
Once again a big thank you to the organisers...
Until next time..
