Myself and Anthony Morton, a fellow member of the Little Wars Revisited 54mm Wargames Forum, ran a participation game at the Cavalier Convention in Tonbridge, Kent yesterday using 54mm figures, the portable wargames rules and a scenery board I made.

Beautiful setup. Thanks for posting.

I can only second Durban Gamer's comment above!Inspiring.

The way you've portrayed forests is simple but very stylish and effective. I can see myself doing something similar, but with the smaller figures I own so it will be more truly 'portable'.

Mike, Look slike a great game. The terrain is an very interesting idea.

I must say Mike's set up was the most aesthetically pleasing environment I've ever seen for a game of glossy toy soldiers. A lot of the punters seemed to think so too. It's a shame Bob Cordery was ill on the day as I'm quite sure he would have sold a good number of copies of his rules had he been there.


PS Hope you're recovering Bob.

Many thanks for the comments – it was a fun game to run and we had a lot of interest. Those joining in seemed to enjoy themselves.
