The day after the battle of Lesnaya (Great Northern War)

Post by Sorandir » Tue Mar 01, 2016 10:08 am

Here are some pictures of my Donnybrook-presentation at this years TACTICA, Hamburg, Germany.
Historical background is the attack of cossacks and russians against the defeated swedes of general Lewenhaupt after the battle of Lesnaya 1708 AD.
All my players enjoy the scenario and the rules, so (again) a huge Thank YOU to Barry Hilton and Clarence Harrison for this elegant ruleset.

The game looked fantastic, the figures are very nicely painted & the terrain was superb, you should be very pleased with the result.

Lots of guys came to the League of Augsburg table after playing your game & said how much they enjoyed it.

Also thanks for lending us your dice :D :D :D

Great looking game.

Typical of Bob and Barry going all that way to put on a game and forget to take any dice 8-)
Thankfully they have Gerry and myself to keep them organised normally.
Cheers
