Today I caught up with old friends in the Glen. To get there I passed the palace and other historical sites. I thought some of the readers of this blog might enjoy seeing the photos l took. As ever click on them to make them bigger.

June 27, 2021 saw an opportunity to have the Saxe-Bearstien and Stagonian armies of Bluebear Jeff face one another again on 'the field of Mars'.

I just saw the announcement on The Miniatures Page that sculptor and wargamer Richard Ansell passed on Feb 11 due to a heart attack. You can read more about the sad event on the Two Fat Lardies blog .
Many of us have figures sculpted by Richard and his passing will leave a huge hole in the miniature gaming world.

Saxe-Bearstein shall be going silent as was Jeff's desire. There is no reason to stop posting here and continuing a game-filled conversation.

We are trying out the "Black Powder" rules (and making mistakes of course). So far we have fought two battles:
The Battle at Bittewasser (clicky) and The Bridge at Kronstadt (clicky).
|Early action at Bittewasser.|
|Early movement at Kronstadt.|
And a bit to my surprise, I have been liking the "Black Powder" rules . . . so we hope to fight more battles as my health permits.
Future encounters can be found at "The Wars of Stagonian Aggression" blog (so you might want to bookmark it).
