Crisis 2019: again a very nice show this year

As always, the Alde Garde tries to be at the Antwerp "Crisis" wargames show.
So this year we managed that again and had our new 15mm "Siege of Maestricht 1748" demo with us. Used rules were "Honours of War".
We, as can be seen at earlier blogposts, build a part of the Vaubanesque fortress works of Maestricht.

Of course there are a lot of 15mm figures which are used before but as every time, we expand the amount of figures on the table.
This time we portrayed a part of the defenses of Maestricht on the northern side as they were in 1748 (see picture underneath of the north side of the fortress) when the French army of Louis XV besieged the town.
The scenario of getting a supply column into the city was fictional.

Some pictures of our table:

Organised by the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp the show is the highlight for our wargames year and we were not disappointed with it.
It seemed to us that there were less visitors this year then last year but that could just be an illusion as we have only little time to look around the 2 halls.
Some pictures of the show underneath although on TMP a lot of other clubs have already put pictures of the show online.
Sorry that we don't have the names and pictures  of the demos and participation games of all the various clubs but we have had very little time to stroll the two halls.



  1. Great work guys, hope to see you again next year

    1. Will,
      thanks for your kind words. Hope to see you again also.

  2. You had a great looking table!

    I can also say we had actually MORE visitors then last year as the numbers dribble in

    1. Tomsche, thanks. We do our best!
      It is great that there were more visitors and TSoA deserves that as they put on a great show each year!
