Franco-Prussian War Game 0

A test-run of the new rules, this was an exciting game that showed the potential of the square/grid based ruleset over conventional "measure and move" rules.



The boards need a bit more dressing up, but on the whole, we were quite pleased with the way this game looked.

Since this was the test-run for the campaign, I'm calling this Game Zero, so we number them right =)

I am quite impressed by how good the figures and buildings look in the photos.

Captain Arjun, your table looks great with great looking figures! How did you put the grid down since I don't see any lines?

Awesome mass cavalry charge. Also like the look of the buldings. Are they paper?

Thanks, Dale.

Yes, those are paper buildings from Paper Terrain:
