I have set up my game table to play the Battle of Fontenoy over the weekend, using the Charles S. Grant scenario found in his book, "Wargaming in History – Volume 2, Dettingen, Fontenoy and Laufeld."

Keeping with the Grant theme for the game, I will substitute Prussians for British and Austrians for the French.

Redoubt d'Eu

Very nice! Love to see how it turns out

And fantastic to have poor old Saxe in his wicker carriage!

We played New Orleans once using Prussians and Austrians.

Here are a couple more pictures of the game table setup:

Frederick and staff plan some strategy at the town of Vezon.


The Prussian cavalry in reserve on the back table.


I will start the battle tomorrow and play through the weekend.
