The back story of our third Seven Years' War table top battle in India appears at the link below.

It's December 2, 1757 (2017) at Nawab Basmati's stone hill fort hours before the battle on The Plain of Sorrows.


The story is told by my customary captioned photos. However, this time characters tell the tale by dialogue similar to a motion picture. Unusual suspense, tension and treachery add to the mix too.

I hope you will find the story appealing.

Thank you!

If it's not too much of an imposition, how tall is the elephant at the shoulder?

The Tipooh needs one too, as do all Princes, and while I have two non-Redoubt elephants in the stable already, nether is properly accoutered and both need howdahs constructed.

Thank you again.


Thank you again.
