Wow! Some cracking stuff there, love the command elephant especially.

Shots of the players on Day 2 seem to show them sitting down a lot? 8-)
I get lockdown, but I get up again.

Indeed! Back and hammies are knackered from trying to reach into the other half of the table for two days

A really impressive looking game Gents with some lovely figures on display
What impresses me most though is that I didn't see any Mexicans lying down :D

Awesome pics Simon, well done for taking so many and getting them on here so quickly.

Tell Purps this is what happens when you borrow someone's pretty, but syphilitic, hussars and ask them to make a crucial charge, needing a 3 or more on 2d6. It happened again the following turn with the white unit. Unbelievable.

Realising he can't win a cavalry melee to save his life, Andy decides to abandon wargaming and take up fishing. Jamie provides the first lesson, and the Currybad river looks promising for brown trout.

If it's any consolation, Dave, I threw away more of my own cavalry than yours...

And NO ONE could have done differently against Peeler's dodgy dice...

The sixes on each side were all painted on professionally!
