We will be fighting the Battle of Minden (August 1, 1759) this weekend to celebrate the 260th anniversary of the battle. The game will be played with nearly 3,000 figures (28mm and 30mm) over three tables measuring 6ft by 36ft. The rules used will be Batailles dans l'Ancien Regime (or "B.A.R." for short).

Please visit my blog for more information about the game. I will be posting updates all this week prior to the game on Saturday.

What make are those cavalry figures Jim?

The first red squadron on the far left, of 12 figures (three stands deep) , are Elite Miniatures French cavalry.

The next two squadrons are a mix of Elite and I think some Eureka Saxon cavalry.

All of the blue figures on the far right are Elite Miniatures.

There might be some Stadden and Suren figures mixed in too. All of the French are part of Major General Pettygree's collection.

Darn, wish I was close enough to attend!

Thanks Jim. I was surprised (for some reason) at how good those Elite French cav look.

Yes, cavalry are probably the best figures in the Elite SYW figure range.

Jim (Col. Campbell)
Next time we should think to invite you. Remind me.
It's along way but an aeroplane would make it easy and you could perhaps bring some of your BAR units!

You and I have not seen each other and crossed swords since Millennium Con a decade or so ago! Too long.
