Ah - my list clearly didn't run as far as 1854, but that makes a lot more sense! Time to hunker down and pull on my Balaclava, I think...

Good point, Andy. I might hazard a guess (i'm clearly not going well with the film references...), but were you specifically thinking of:

 - 1147 occupation of Lisbon?
 - 1147 Battle of Dorylaeum?
 - 1415 Battle of Agincourt (whoops - apologies again to our French friends...)?

There's so much history out there!

I think Martin must be way cooler than he'd have us believe  :D

I'm surprised that none of our younger audience (or it may just be a sign of the typical age of this Forum's membership...) pointed out the wounded MexRev figure "doing the Dab" as a favourite:

Sounds like a close-run thing. Well done Stewart, and thanks for the write-up.

Regarding other games played, I wasn't aware that FM6 had been issued to the group?

That would be nice,  Matias!

The only thing that seemed to be missing was the new 1/600 ACW rules pdf.

The clue could be in the 27th September date of the document,  which predates the resurrection of the ACW land rules? The focus on publicising things for sale rather than freebies seems quite sensible.

That does look very slick, Simon.

What figures are you using?

Switching from Chrome to Edge Chromium has done the trick for me - I can now see the pretty pictures!

Thanks Ray.

Is this the same programme that was shown (BBC?) a couple of years back?

Simon,

Thanks for this explanation. I actually have the same problem with (not) seeing the Walter Schnaffs images you've just posted too ;)

Good to hear, Stewart.

Sober or not, on past performance I think you stand a good chance tonight, unless Martin has made some cheeky changes to the rules...?

Best of luck to you both!

Thanks Martin, and good point on the new board.

Unfortunately I don't have the Admin powers to create such a thing. If there is sufficient support, perhaps Simon C can do the honours for us?

I thought I'd start a new thread for your delectation, Ladies and Gentlemen, on the basis that it might be appropriate to remember and discuss important dates in the military past.

With suitable apologies to our French friends (pour ce coup de Trafalgar...), today is Trafalgar Day. Stewart may have some choice thoughts on this topic for us all?

Me too, Andy. Same thing with Lluis's previous post, but I went back to his original link in that case. I think I may need to reboot my PC at some point as I suspect it's some cache-clearing issue.

The links that Lluis kindly provided below each picture (or empty white rectangles in our case) worked for me.

Simon C may be able to offer some advice on why these pictures aren't showing for some of us?
