Hotlead 2016: Assault on Dorkshire!

 Here are a few photos of the game I ran at Hotlead this year using my Heyde reproduction figures and my own Homebrew Toy Soldier rules inspired by an online set called Edwardian Splendour.  My bud Gary, supplied era suitable headwear for all participants including Picklehaube Fez, Kepi, Fur hat and more! I was happily able to condense my rules to be a letter sized one pager and so everyone seemed to catch on to the rules very quickly and enjoy themselves. These are still a work in progress but very close to complete. Some pictures below...I wish I had taken to time to take some of the attackers!

The Red Army British and their Green Coated Russian Allies are charged
with the defense of the last man!

The Russian MG nest wreaked havoc on the advancing Turk Brigade who
were swept from the field in minutes.

The valiant thin red line

Blue Coated Greek Troops join the red army as allies. They
won't fight on the same side as the Turks!

Greek Evzones support the rear of their firing line.

German Columns are spotted advancing from the East! Did anyone
remember to bring the armour piercing shells?

The Guards march out of camp to take up positions against the Germans.

Meanwhile our group's Eric ran a 15mm SYW

game of massive proportions! A few poor photos below.
