It's time to make a decision about who wants to attend this years event and what battle we want to put on. My two proposals are;
I have most of the figures and battlefield ready. It's an exotic location which I can enhance with a more elaborate Bengali fortified camp. Two elements I never included in the original game are a sloop of war, which covered Clive's river flank
and two batteries of fully mobile oxen propelled Bengali artillery
Not sure how I would go about making these monsters but for a show I would make the effort.
And the other offering would be;
Again, I think this game has a lot happening in it to make it interesting. We've played it and we have all the figures. But we would need to look at enhancing the terrain and I am not sure a 6'x4' table would be interesting enough unless I could increase the size without buggering up the game. Alternatively, we could do Tarawa which would look fantastic, but again, we would need to look at enhancing the scenery. Also, we could look at getting these;
Anyway, those are my ideas, you may have something better. However, it must be something we have already played and it should have enough of a scenic element to make an impact at the show. Basically, we will spend the next few months polishing a game we have already played.
Russ has checked out hotels and it seems something else is happening in Sheffield that weekend to make rooms more expensive than last year, so we will need to book soon. The new venue is very close to the old one but looks a lot smarter.
