Nevertheless getting all the right kit in the right order at the right place at the right time is not always the easiest task in the world - especially as this year being a 25/8mm game most of the gear is bigger and chunkier and yes a sight heavier. Last year the2 modern armies could be carried in 3 boxes- they were 15mm . This year - just for the troops the count is 7 boxes - mostly bigger than last years mere 3 , and whilst weight is a factor using plastikrap would save no space whatsoever not to mention giving me less choice and lots more breakage so proper "man toys" are the thing and no kiddies plastic in sight..
The scenario for the game will be loosely based on the first Battle of Newbury in 1643 with the Roundheads on the stategic Offensive- they needed to break through the Cavaliers and get back to London - and the Cavalry heavy Royalists trying to stop this
