I have made a major change to the game being played over the Easter weekend at Gerry's great and fun convention, I have had to cancel the Sudan game as I just didn't get everything done that I was happy with. I like to see games with all the trimmings, personalities, vignetes, great scenary pieces and the all important civilians but these are the things that I have not yet completed so it will have you have to wait until next year to don the pithe helmet or red fez. I am now going to do a 12x6 foot Deluge period game set in the Ukraine in 1660, with Muscovites and Cossacks besieging a small Polish force in a fortified town. The Muscovites and Cossacks are unaware of a strong relief force of Polish and German (mercenary) regulars and Tartars coming to their rescue and have to fight on two fronts (lucky they have lots of troops), should be fun.
The game will look similar to the one illustrated above that we played over a year ago but with more troops, scenary and terrain. I will be using 'Winged Fury' as the rules with infantry units of 20 men and cavalry units of 8 men, I will use a D10 for command rolls for the better trained Polish units whilst the Muscovite and Cossacks will use a D6. Come along and have a game if you are in Brisbane over the Easter Weekend, I will post lots of photos after the weekend. Cheers Scott
