Hope everyone is doing well & staying healthy. And if you are a Medical professional out on the front lines, or an Essential Worker risking exposure on a daily basis to help keep the trains and everything else our society needs in order to keep on keeping on, THANK YOU and Godspeed.

Now to the Hobby stuff…

With help from an old friend and long-time book collector I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of the fold-out map of the battle from the British Army Intelligence Branch. This led me to make a bunch of adjustments to the table layout. Also I was convinced by Sgt. Guinness to go ahead and EXTEND THE TABLE 2', in order to include the second pass over the ridge-line, known as the MURZA KOTAL (AKA: Mirza, Marza, Murcha, etc).

Meantime, here's just a taste of the visuals:

That's a great looking table!

Great finds. This is going to be the ultimate replay of the battle! Anyone wanting to game this in future should definitely learn from your work.

If one had the time, space and talent this is what gaming should be! Looking forward to more installments of this project.

The more I look at this the more I'm utterly impressed with not only the unfolding terrain, but the level of research and insight into the game. I'm collecting in 28mm but beginning to think there is scope to do this in the Grand Manner with Pendraken 10mm as well.

MG, well, know that I've "encouraged" you to add the extra terrain I will do everything I can to assist you with this project my friend. It truly looks amazing already. I'm impressed and am looking forward to your posting the progress.

Thanks very much guys! And Chris -- great to see you here at TMP! Such high praise from you for the look of my games is like winning "Best In Show" at a wargaming convention!
