Montebello certainly does work well with 10mm

My railway is from Irregular Miniatures.

The two BBB Bash Days so far were both great fun and I'd love to do another one. However, the format takes quite a lot of effort to organize, and unfortunately various other commitments mean I don't have the time right now. Nobody else has picked up the baton, so unless someone steps forward very soon, I think we'll give it a miss for 2018 and maybe focus on doing more games at shows instead.

Montebello is a great scenario and is popular for good reason. It is easy terrain to set up, only needs 4'x4', and is quick to play (we completed it three times in 5 hours with total novice players); the contrast between French quality and Austrian quality, in terms both of troops and of commanders, is really brought out well by the rules; and the scenario special rule that lets the outnumbered French delay the Austrian reinforcements by assaulting boldly makes for a good ding-dong scrap.

You should try it, even if you just use proxy armies.

That's what I'm looking to do - planning on First Bull Run at Joy of Six in Sheffield next July. May also look at a FPW scenario at Phalanx in June.

We were in the same hall as Gettysburg but tucked away in the furthest corner.
