We refought the Battle of Minden on August 3, 2019 on three 6ft by 36ft tables and approximately 3,000 30mm figures of various makes.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments.i really enjoyed the planning and staging of this game before hand, so the actual game played like clockwork. The pictures don't adequately convey how much table surface there was, so there was plenty of room for maneuvering and some distance created fog of war.

For example, I had little idea of what was happening at the other end of the table. As Ferdinand of Brunswick I was so engaged in my sector that I forgot that I had ordered our left wing to hold the villages at all costs. So once the French were defeated in that sector, they did not counterattack because they had no orders to do so.
