BIG WARS, wee game. The Battle of Bee Keeper’ Cotttage a Stuart Asquith tribute game.I

Set up this game as a tribute game to Stuart Asquith. A Swedish landing party ( comprising sailors, soldiers and volunteer riflemen) has landed on Holy Isle , Northumbria in an attempt to raid the mead distillery. Albion troops have crossed the sands from the mainland only to find the Swedes in a fortified position at Bee Keeper’s Cottage. A battle ensues...

  3. Some Britains trees & hedging, Lemax walls and benches, sign lamppost hedges fencing replica metal soldiers. My favourite is the beehive from my boyhood Britains farm which has been used in so many ways over the years.

    1. Looks good. The campfire from my old Marx Robin Hood set still appears on the table occasionally.

  4. Lovely set up Alan. Like you my favourite is the beehive-I think I must have missed out in my childhood as I never had any Britains farm toys!

    1. Never to late to start a collection, the pre war metal range looks great too.

  5. Nice setup, very evocative of toy soldier gaming in the manner of HG Wells and RL Stevenson.

  6. That's the Bees Knees, Alan! I'm sure Stuart Asquith would be very pleased how your tribute game turned out. Great how one tiny piece of terrain or scenery such as the beehive suggested a whole scenario.
