A trip to Fiasco

Jamie and I had our usual trip to Fiasco on Sunday (me from Sheffield, he from York).  This time I took along Tom which meant we got to talk gaming on the way up as well as while we were there.

I was planning a shopping trip but I was also under instructions to take some photos for Chris, who couldn't go.  Unfortunately I was so busy chatting to people that I didn't get that many pics taken.

This Seven Years War battle (Zorndorf) was nice:



Interesting way of doing unit status markers...


And I liked the windmill.

 
An interesting idea was this modern naval game in which the surface ships were on stands and the submarines manoeuvred beneath them.


There was a 28mm game that I didn't pay too much attention to at the time because I thought it was A Very British Civil War (which doesn't really do it for me) but looking at the pics now I see it seems to be Operation Sealion, which is far more my cup of tea-with-condensed-milk.



Finally, as far as my photos go, there was a large Napoleonic battle, billed as Gorodetschna.  Russians, Austrians and French all featured.

Thanks for the pics, the windmill looks like it is based on the old Airfix model.

Cheers, Will. I don't know Airfix had done a windmill. I shall Google for it.
