St Quentin - Franco-Prussian War battle - BBB demo game

We are planning to put on a BBB demo/participation/display game at the Overlord show in Abingdon on Sunday 1 March.

The game we chose is the battle of St Quentin, 1871, from the Franco-Prussian War: not just the simple assault of 19 January, but also the far more interesting mobile action (wagon trains and all) of the day before. Earlier this week we had a rehearsal to make sure we were all familiar with the scenario and to lay out for the first time some of the custom terrain we've made for it. Our master craftsman, Colin, has scratchbuilt this model of St Quentin town hall:








Which is an amazing scale representation of the real thing:






See you in Abingdon!
