A report (with photos) of a recent game using the FLW rules and 54mm toys can now be viewed on my blog :

Most entertaining.

Do you have any more pictures of dead Prussian gunners?

Now that is a proper wargame! Big units, big figures, high adventure and properly severe commanders

Well done – thanks for posting

We wanted to start off with a smallish game and so used a 13x7 foot table.

I like your style!

Well, it was smaller than using a lawn…. we had to halve the ranges and movement distances in any case.

I have already lodged my protest with the Forbodian ambassador at their claim of a 'victory' We might have lost a few horses and wagons, but at least we didn't have an entire infantry regiment wiped out in close combat.

…just a cavalry regiment and all your artillery…..

The battle is over but the propaganda war continues!

The Forbodian Ministry of Information has come into many pictures of the dead gunners. Most were taken by a neutral correspondent.

Good on you, Pink Panzer!

Saw your report earlier, but grateful you chose to share with the wider world.

"…just a cavalry regiment and all your artillery….."

As I said, a few horses and wagons. Cavalry is an irrelevance on the modern battlefield and our sturdy Landsers can push our artillery home.

We might have to recruit some more gunners though. Posters are already going up throughout the the kingdom.

I'm just glad I got the money for the limbers before the game!

Great looking game. 54mm is the only way to go, painted or unpainted.
