Each May we have a tradition; My Annual Birthday Game Day. This May we went to Arcot, India durint The Seven Years' War. It gave us a chance to field new uits germane to the location, elephants, Hindu Archers, billions of natives, European units, etc.

The story is told by briefly captioned photos with some narration and personality development. My AARs are written in a story or movie format. Something like that. Main Table: 6'x24'. Roughly 1,300 28mm miniatures.
