It was enjoyable at Crisis 2015 to discuss the BLB rules with author Barry Hilton.
We had upgraded our 9 Years War Game with several new units, especially cavalry, to play a rearguard attack scenario with much cavalry involved.
This created however some situations, originating from the 'all or nothing charge', which we thought were not easy to tackle from the BLB rules.

I've now started painting up a Bavarian Cuissassier Brigade. It served the French army up to 1692, when it changed sides to the Grand Alliance. Although hardly seeing service in Flanders, the Bavarians may flourish the cavalry of the Dutch/Spanish forces.

I'm looking for the right standards now to complete my first units.

Crisis 2015

Well, Crisis 2015 is gone already.
A very nice show again, It is every year a joy to see a lot of people you know, talk to them about wargaming, rules, figures, olans etc etc.
Crisis was imho wel organised (parking was a problem, but that was not the fault of TSoa) so a big thanks to all the memebers of TSoA who made this show possible; it is a lot of work each year.

Some pictures of the show underneath. of other clubs and their presentations. Sorry but we haven't their names. Exept of course he first two as these are Barry Hiltons'presentations and we used BlB for our game at Crisis with our 1960 demo.

Some pictures of our Nine Years War demo using, as said, the BLB rules and 25mm.
