1644 Deluge game

Today a friend of mine Mark Temple came over and we decided to have a small but enjoyable 1644 game. Mark has a fine collection of English Civil War figures. To this we added some of my sons Brandenburg's to form some allies which were pitted against my Imperialist Austrian forces. The table is 6' x 14' and is down stairs in what i call the war games room which is equipped with some appropriate pictures on the wall.

It was a hard fought game with Austrian and Danish forces pressing home attacks in the centre allowing some Cavalry to sweep around on the left flank.

This picture is part of the Brandenburg allied centre and right we used the foundry set of 1644 rules which while enjoyable was disappointing. At the end of the day Mark and i have decided to try our hand at putting our own set of rules together and will certainly post any future information on this.

New Product lines

It has been our intention to increase our product lines by including other manufacturers figures and scenics. After talks with 1st Corp we can now say that Battleline Scenics is the sole distributor of their figure range including Curteys Miniatures. This is great news for us as it extends our product range to cover other periods outside of ACW. Other developments this week have also included the ability to stock the Perry Plastics ACW range which we hope to have in stock in the next few weeks and 2 more manufacturers which we can now distribute for, those being Sash and Sabre and Front Rank. If we can help anyone who is interested in these ranges please do not hesitate to contact us.

There were quite a number of games going open to all who wanted to play along with some great trade stands. The games varied from Dr. Who to Deluge to American Civil War. Great fun was had by all with the weekend held in fantastic spirit. Anyone who missed out going truly missed a great weekend. I have included some pictures of some of the games for suggest that everyone marks this weekend on there calendar for next year.
