Some photos of the game, some are better than others, but it was a busy day!

The Crown army ran out of steam and a rebel victory was declared.

...and the game won the "Best Painting Award" this is also the "Bill Brewer" award and as such is the best thing to win as Bill really set the standard back in the day.

Thanks to everyone who helped or stopped by.

More on Scrivsland.

Next year we are promised a Verdun extravaganza by James and Scrivs so I get 2 years to plan my next game...

cheers
