6 Mailed Fist Manchester Recreation of the Battle of Kunersdorf During the Seven Years' War more than 100000 men clashed in a decisive battle near Kunersdorf east of Frankfurt. On 12 August 1759 a combined allied army of 41000 Russians and 24000 Austrians under Field Marshall Pyotr Saltykov defeated and scattered Frederick the Great's Prussian army of 50900. So great was the defeat that after the battle only 3000 soldiers from Frederick's original army returned to Berlin. The battle represented the penultimate success of the Russian Empire under Tsarina Elizabeth Petrovna Romanov and arguably was Frederick's worst defeat and ultimately led to end of the war 7Yrs War 15mm

12 Lance and Longbow The Attack on Venlo 1372 from the First Guelders War of Succession. During the 14th century the Duchy of Guelders is one of the prominent regions of the Netherlands then still referred to as the Low Countries. After the death of Duke Reinald II in 1343 the throne is claimed by both sons Eduard and Reinard III but they are minors. Local noblemen seek to gain advantage so Eduard is supported by the Lord of Bronckhorst while the Lord of Heeckeren supports Reinald. Eduard won the civil war but was killed at the Battle of Baesweiler in August 1371 then Reinald III died in December that year. Neither brother had children so the succession moved to their half-sisters Maria (supported by the Bronckhorst party) and Mechteld (adopted by the Heeckerens). Venlo is one of the important towns in Guelders and joins Maria. In late summer 1372 the Heckeren party lay siege to the town. In our partly fictitious scenario the Heeckerens are laying siege to Venlo and a Bronckhorst relief army surprises the besiegers who have to fight the enemy mostly on foot. The demo game uses Hail Caesar rules and displays a broad selection of Low Countries Heraldry and 25-28mm wargame figures ranging from good old Lammings to the latest outstanding Claymore figures Medieval 28mm

19 St Helens Spartans Infinity Demo Game Infinity is a 28mm metal miniatures game simulating special operations and skirmishes in a high technology sci-fi universe. Infinity recreates Direct Action operations which are quick lethal and very risky. Missions are executed in the midst of a combat zone or behind enemy lines but always in critical areas where the level of risk is the highest. The player assumes command of a small group of elite troops specifically chosen before the battle begins to suit the mission's profile. This allows players to tailor their team's composition depending on the current mission fielding different operatives from different units to find the professional troops whose skills may be the most useful during the operation Sci-Fi 28mm

Very good, I'll probably go as it's my local show, Grim Tree must be popular as they appear to have two separate stalls (5 & 42)

Cheers Roger.

Always a good show, see you there.

GildasFacit Sponsoring Member of TMP09 Jun 2017 7:52 a.m. PST

Just to let people know so that they don't get upset when they can't see Tiny Tin Troops at Phalanx.

We do not do shows any more, we haven't done for 3 years.

I informed the club of this before this announcement was posted but they don't seem to think it important enough to remove TTT from the list and avoid the problems it may cause me when customers assume it is me that has failed to appear.

It isn't my fault – this is a mistake by the organisers.

Good Luck Shaun….. keep the flame burning!

A great show, Thanks to all those who put on games. It was nice to see people actually talking to the public (I chatted to plenty of people about the games they were running).

Barry Fee19 Jun 2017 1:50 a.m. PST

As one of the organisers I would like to thank everyone who turned out to the support the show again this year. We are a small club who work hard on the show but without the support of all the visitors, traders and demonstration/participation games the show would be a flop. It was the 25th anniversary of the show this year and the numbers of traders, clubs, and visitors to the show demonstrate it is stronger now than ever before. with online trade, an option now compared to 1992 when we started the show I can still see that people still value the facility to visit and browse lots of traders in the same place. another attraction these shows offer in my opinion is the chance to meet new and old friends. I cannot tell you how many times I have spoken at length with people I meet at shows and we become friends. so again thanks to everyone and see you next year.
