  1. Looking good so far.... I look forward to tomorrow's battle.

  2. Tradgardmastare,

    A wonderfully evocative set of images! Really inspiring and the terrain is absolutely in keeping with the look of the figures. It reminds me of the photos in H G Wells' FLLOR GAMES.

    I really looking forward to the rest of your battle report.

    All the best,


  3. I eagerly await the battle report ! ,Tony

  4. Looks good! Big Wars is a solid set of rules should be about right for this.

  5. Excellent! I like the terrain and figures. Very evocative as Bob said.
