  1. Wonderful shots, sir. What rules are you using? They look like they might be BAR . . . or are they something else?

  2. Yes Jeff, we were using BAR. I have found them to be fast playing and when a doubt about the rules arise, a frendly descussion brings us to a club agreement. Jim Pitts of ColCampbell's Barracks uses them in his battles here. 2011 looks to have many BAR battles with Jim or me providing the protagonist.

  3. Looks like a bit of a slugfest, with the Blue Guys faced with a high degree of difficulty shifting the Harzburgers off their ridge. They didn't succeed by the look of it...
    Nice pictures, and fine looking armies, Jeff!

  4. The Schwabian Leauge held their ground and forced Harzburg to pull back due to loisses
