Tom used the ruleset "British Grenadier" which I think is a fore-runner of General D'Armee. It took us a while to get the rules down and they did work, but I prefer Gd'A a lot better. I do have the point out that the writing style in British Grenadier is almost unreadable. It's like they had 20 pages of rules that were stretched into 80. The rule book itself is beautiful, just don't try to read the rules.
We left the table set up in the club and I'm going to try a crack at running the same battle using GdA and lets see how that goes.

Of course, my first encounter with these guys wasn't so fun.

I ran a game of Legion to teach the rules. I really like Legion and think it's a much more refined version of Bolt Action.
The overall opinion on Legion was very positive so I think you'll see more at the club in the future.

Thanks fro the very nice coverage - Dave Taylor is a superb photographer and his skills make even the schlock I put on look good.

All the stuff behind the divisions is "extras" that came with the French Division set I purchased from Perter at Baccus.
This is the first time I've painted up 6mm figures in a long time. How long - maybe all the way back to 2012.
I had forgotten how freeing painting 6mm minis are - there isn't a lot of detail that I can paint so rather than focus on individual minis one focus on the entire basing to convey the setting and time period. It was a lot of fun. I suspect you'll see some more 6mm in the future.

It's an interesting force with a mix of troops in French blue and a range of colonial and Senegalese troops.
I am not the most skilled painter in 6mm so am trying to make the basing look good - see the "barbed wire" to distract people from my really awful paint job.
I suspect Peter Baccus will see some additional orders from me for his WW1 line

Oh, there may have been a beach being taken away from the Brits. Just saying.....
There will be no pictures from the second game but the table and mini's are equally stunning. Why no pic's? - cause you just might see the game this season on LWTV and I don't want to "spill the beans"
I also recorded my first two rules reviews for the channel so it was a busy day - please be kind in your complaints about my ugly visage on the You-Tube. I am a delicate flower.

This next part may be too much for those of you with delicate constitutions - using nothing but my hand I lifted the trapped skink out of the pool.
I love it when a plan comes together.
