While I Am Away...

...the troops prepare for battle.

I have been away for work at the home office in Seattle this week.  One of the few good things about a six hundred mile round trip for work is that it gives me plenty of commute time for podcast listening and thought pondering.

One such rumination focused on how to see a better performance out of the British in the last tabletop battle.  After the first Battle of Arroyo con Pollo, the British take up positions to relive the action upon my return.





Will we witness another French victory or have the British learned a thing or two from their earlier defeat?

  1. Great pictures.

    As a Brit, I can assure you that we Brits didn't get where we are today by learning a thing or two...

  7. Nice work. Are the interchangeable terrain boards your own creation?

    1. Thank you! Yes, I built those terrain boards close to 20 years ago. The boards are showing some wear after years of hard use and the gaps between boards are not exactly to my liking (and not so photogenic) but it is an acceptable solution for me. The tiles with river cut into some of the boards are geomorphic so they always connect regardless of positioning.
