A great 2-day event down in Reading, at the Rivermead Sports Complex on the 14th & 15th November.  More info can be found here: http://www.wargamesassociationreading.co.uk/ and we'll need any pre-orders in to us before Sat 7th.

Excellent show indeed. We will be running a Bloody Big Battles participation/demo game at Warfare, probably Franco-Prussian War (with Pendraken figures, of course). So put it in your diary, come on down to Reading, roll some dice with us, have a good time, and then pick up your new FPW armies from Leon.  Smiley

Chris,

I'll be coming to warfare (doing usual wings participation game for two days) so great to see that you are running a BBB game. I'll certainly like to participate to see how the rules go.

Can confirm that I, my brother and nephew will all be there (not my son - he rather disapproves of martial interests). Hope to see some of you southerners when I go. Staying over in Reading (Novotel) so will be there Sunday as well.

Hi Leman, I plan to be there both days too. It'll be good to meet you and the rest of your clan then.

If it's a participation FPW I'd happily give it a go.

Yes, the plan is to repeat our successful FPW participation game that we ran at Abingdon. It would be great to have you and yours join in. And indeed any other Forum members who may be passing.

The scenario will be the battle of St Quentin, 1871 - not just the assault of 19 January (which was a straight attack-defence and therefore of rather limited interest as a game), but the very mobile fighting on 18 January as well, complete with wagon trains.

(Incidentally, I've been playtesting an ACW scenario for the Battle of The Wilderness over the past few weeks, and was struck by how structurally similar the two battles are: a numerically superior army, advancing on two axes and encumbered by wagon trains, gets struck in flank by an aggressive and qualitatively superior force, likewise advancing on two axes. Quite different in other respects, of course, but the distinctive geometry makes for a great game in each case.)

Officially I think Leman is about right with 4pm, but the Sunday's tend to be quieter and most of the traders will have started packing away before 3pm usually.  We've got a 5-hour drive back up north after a long weekend, so we'll be hoping to be on road by 5pm if we can.
