That must have been quite an experience Kitty.

Nearest experience I had like that was visiting Waterloo in 2015, about 3 days after the reinactment finished. There was about 3 campervans left in the carpark. I was asked to get some stuff from the shop there but I all I could find was a reproduction poster of Napoleon crossing the Alps and a small silver bust of the man himself as the shop had been pretty well been picked clean.

As regards to Baccus TTT guess its a matter of choice - if you like them great, if not look for another method.     
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
we are not now that strength which in old days
moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.

It was jolly cold - I'd never taken the description "frozen like iron" seriously before, but the field was like that. The way it transmitted the vibrations of gunfire was terrifying, even knowing they weren't actually trying to kill us.
Other notes: hot mead in a Moravian midwinter is a most agreeable drink, and going to a spectacle with another man and a woman you both fancy can be quite...interesting, shall I say?

Just to state a position. I use 6mm structures with 10mm figures, 10mm structures with 25/28mm, and 1830mm structures in real life. In the first two, if a structure is in the way, I move it aside. In the latter, I glare at it and walk around or through.
