The table and figures are beautiful. A labor of love and a great amount of work. It came out great!

Fantastic work!

Looking at your table it makes me feel like I am the guy in Crocodile Dundee that pulls the knife on Mick-- "That's not a board, mate-- THIS is a board!"

Wow!! Very very awesome,

which shows are you planning to take it to? I'd love to have a look at it for real.

Amazing. Very well done. Excellent landscape.

Is yours an actual representation of Marston Moor battlefield or have you used some artistic licence? Curiosity, not criticism.

As aye,
Captain D'Ewell

thanks am pleased with it. Its based on the main bit of the battlefiled altho it should be 12ft wide really. The osprey book map shows the field well. But its a fair close approximation really. i will be at scarborough on 30 june and 1 july so far. see

I am speechless – this is a phenominal table…

I think a trip to Scarborough is now on the cards if only to see this layout.

paul in rhb08 May 2012 12:03 a.m. PST

am sure will be worth it- there are some other big games there too. Gettysburgh, dark age and napoleonics- all 24ft long tables etc

Looks great Paul.

What are your perceptions on the FOG renaissance rules please?

(and are you still married !!!! :o) )

very good 1815 guy… you're not really the hot blonde chick i met in the pub last night are you?

I have had ecw 25mm figures for about 5 years but never played properly with them because I couldnt find a set of rules that I enjoyed using.

I play Fog- ancients so when Fog-R came out I gave them a try. I really enjoy them as they are relatively simple and straight forward.

At the recent Wartorn show in Scarborough me and one other chap could have played Marston Moor in one day had we pushed on. We referred to the rule book just once. Like all rules they need some time to digest and are best understood when taught by someone else but in summary Fog-r has rejuvented my interest in ECW- stemming back from buying my first Minifigs in the late 70s! Which i still have in my display cupboard.

And.. no !
