Beautifull wargame table.
"This was our display game at the Targe 2012 show. Fort Ticonderoga was built by the French in 1755 at a strategically important point on Lake Champlain. In May 1775 at the start of the American War of Independence Fort Ticonderoga was captured in a surprise attack by the Green Mountain Boys. Later that year it was the staging post for the failed American invasion of Quebec…"

Yes … I must admit I was expecting to see something of Fort Ticonderoga from the title … but worth a look nonetheless (with 28mm there are limitations, I guess …) …

Must get back to Scotland soon … they have some great wargaming clubs up there …

As one of the judges at the show I had a good close look at it and it was very nice, it's just unfortunate that nobody at game decided to speak to the guy that was hanging around so much which meant that they scored 0 for public interaction as did a number of other display games.

Nice Looking Game. I happen to own a model of the Fort,which I helped my late father to build it is Big as it was made to use the 25mm figures.

I helped the guys who put the table together for most of the day. I certainly don't recall anyone who raised a friendly query or comment being ignored or shunned. It's possible that blokes who were just "hanging around so much" we're regarded with a cautious eye, or perhaps the guys at the table were just getting worried about their wallets.

Perhaps if the judges tried some human interaction rather than lurking there wouldn't have been so many zero scores…..

And well done to the guys who put the table together, I thought it was terrific.

Oh, and thanks very much Armand, for putting up the piccie, salut, mon ami!
