SDS Battles (Dec11)

Today Tony and I attempted to put on three introduction games at once.  I think it went pretty well.  We had a few players who had played before which helped us out.  We had 16 players show up to play and we had just enough troops.  Well, I say that, but it seems like new squads are coming out of the woodwork which is great.   I saw new squads of Royal Marines and Sailors with long boats!, Highlanders, Rifles, etc.

So we will be scheduling more battles through the winter and will start a semi formal like campaign which should be a lot of fun.

So here are some pictures I took and Tony on his blog will have more to check out.

Thanks to all that played!  I had a good time seeing everyone else having a good time.

Dan,
this is awesome! Great terrain, a lot of people and very nicely painted miniatures. It is a pleasure for me to see that so many people all around the world play my game enjoying themselves (I'm so proud :)
I signed up in your blog to follow your games more closely...
