Miniature Wargames with Battlegames & The Battle of the Boyne.....



............or Blowin' me own Trumpet!!

Just picked up my copy of Miniature Wargames with Battlefields and I was very pleased to see a photo of the Posties Rejects game The Battle of the Boyne that we put on at this years Broadside show in early June.
You can, if you so wish, find it and 11 other pics from the show on page 75 of the mag, including Clint's Naval game, no4 on the right and Gravesend Wargames Club's AWI game on the left, no12.
Now its only a small one, but small one's always count (so my mrs keeps reminding me?, don't know what she means by that?)
In the pic are the 2nd Battalion of the Dutch Blew Guard, with their orange flags flying high and also the Huguenot regt la Caillmotte who are in column. I've got to admit to being pretty chuffed seeing my figures and the game in a Wargames mag!!!!



Henry also gave a link to his Flickr account, so if you want to see a few more pics of the show click this link here Henry Hyde, I've got to admit there are some cracking photos there!


This is the second time we've made it into a mag, the first was a few years ago in First Empire mag,
we had The Battle of Zakharina a Napoleonic batrep published.

  9. Thanks for the back link and most importantly the heads up about the show in the mag. I have Just phoned Alan Abbey to let him know as we were both unaware of it. So a BIG thank you mate I really appreciate it.

    2. No identification on it, just a "Blood bilge and Iron Balls " Game. Which is fair as we where right in front of the publishers and Mr Hyde was not to know if we were independent of the publishers or not. But I shall use it as inspiration to do bigger and better next time out.. But will see how the TAR7AN board turns out before I do much more planning!

  14. This is wonderful Ray! I know just how hard you worked on those figures and to see them in a mag must be satisfying indeed. Go Rejects!!!!

  15. I was afraid they'd have pictures of the 'Rejects themselves...

    1. That would be a bad idea, they'd have to sell the mag in a brown paper bag, with a severe health warning!!

  16. That has so many style points I don't know where to begin.

    Do you need renomination for your presence at Blog-Con?
