This weekend saw me go to Perth to take part in the Battle of Vellinghausen.
Rather than go through a full background and excellent account can be found here
The Battle itself lasted over two days, commencing on the evening of Day 1 and for most of Day 2.
The game itself focused on the attack on the Allied left by the Duc de Broglie.
I played the part of the Allies whilst John Dougan commanded the French.
The British commander on the Field of Battle was the Marquis of Granby and Charles asked if I had a suitable model, I didn't so I set about converting one to look something like the picture of him at the Battle of Warburg.

Now of course I can't go into details of the game as this will be appearing in a future publication. But it was a hard fought and bloody affair.
Here's a picture of part way through day 1 with both the Prince and Granby praying for night to fall.
Once again a fantastic weekends gaming, superb hospitality from Charles and his wife Liz and great company with John, Charles and I discussing all things hobby and Crann Tara related late on the Saturday night. Watch out for more new releases - the list is long :)
