Here we setting up in the village hall. It's a really nice, light airy venue with probably enough room for two such large games. We travel down on the Friday and spend an hour or so getting the tables ready. One of the chaps bought 3 or 4 table cloths for about £8 each and offered to sell them to us as wargame mats for £40 each! Bless!
The all important drinks and snacks section.
I think we are just about done.
We then went to pub.
Next day the troops were positioned. Here are my Mexicans on the table. I then took photos of some of the others guys troops prior to entry of the table. A lot were reserves and didn't even make it into the game. I think the OOB had just under 3,000 28/25mm figures. Sunday afternoon at about 2:30ish we (Confederates) admitted defeat. My force of one Confederate brigade routed off piecemeal and my lancers were vaporized by three 12lb batteries. The white-coated Mexican line battalion routed. I then called a withdrawal on what was left. Plenty of stories and anecdotes to tell that night in the pub!
The game in progress...
