I occasionally see fellow gamers posting about having a wargames day to mark their birthdays. This seems an excellent custom. My good mate Dave hosted such an event last weekend and we celebrated his birthday in style with not one but two Franco-Prussian War battles (one imperial, one republican). Some photos and reflections on the day here:

An excellent way to spend a birthday and great write-up.

Thanks, all.

@NottinghamWargames: I enjoyed your Franco-Prussian foray this week as well! Your figures look great (your games always do).
