Please note I will not be hosting any Public events from 31st January 2023. Nothing too drastic from our side, just need a break.

I’ll be providing updates when we’re back, here and on my social media platforms.

Thank you for all the custom and friendship this has brought me to date.

I look forward to seeing you all again soon, both new and old customers.

Well here at the Wargames Holiday Centre we were very privileged to host the second General de Brigade weekend. This time however the excitement was generated by a new scale. Imagine 15mm scale fighting across a battlefield designed for 28mm. Nearly half as much space again to manoeuvre in!!

So 25 guys turned up, bringing a host of their 15mm collections along with them as well as terrain, fields, copse and villages! Thousands of excellently painted miniatures arrayed from many nationalities! Italians, Saxons, Poles, Germans, Prussians, Austrians, Russians and even some Swiss!

So without any further delay I bring you a small gallery of some of the images taken over the weekend. HOVER OVER THE IMAGE FOR THE TITLE!

My thanks go to Dave Brown and the rest of the support team that went toward making this a truly superb weekend. The whole look and feel of the battle was brilliant! I am looking forward to the next one in 2013. You can follow more of the GdB exploits an get a lot more photos here on the General de Brigade blog.

Over the last year Dresden has proved to be a very popular battle, with me hosting it no less than three times already! Each time it’s played different tactics are employed and very different results are achieved.

A nice shot of some Austrian Infantry advancing to the fight


Figures are by Elite Miniatures, painted and tweaked by Doug Mason

So I thought I would give you a taste of the most recent battle, just as a view through the looking glass as it were. Over the next few pictures I will just highlight the action or the unit in view and what it was doing. This will allow me to post up far more images of the figures (as that is what we all want to see….right?)

Just hover over the image for the description.


These were heavily converted Bicorne Miniatures by Doug Mason


More Connoisseur Miniatures

Sometimes we use troops that represent their compatriots in the fight, here Westphalians for French


Connoisseur Miniature Uhlans, Painted and tweaked by no other than One man and his Brushes, Dave Docherty….lovely!


Connoisseur Miniatures Russians, attacking the eastern side of the Gross Garten


While the Russian Guard attacks the southern face! Figures by Front Rank and painted by Reinforcements by Post



More of Dougs Handy work, figures by Connoisseur.

French artillery in redoubts await the Allied advance.

To take the pressure of the defenders of the Gross GArten the French Guard attacked.

While still providing something of the thrill of the battle itself.

I do hope you enjoy the images. I will get back to writing battle reports periodically, as time allows.
