Just uploaded and put on the web site an article from B.W. Kostwinner who has kindly sent us photo's of this set produced for the British Army.

It's a really nice looking set, and the troop blocks go very well with the 19th C UK Ordnance Survey maps.

The large number of game pieces in the set suggests that games could be run up to corps level, using individual battalions, squadrons etc as manoeuvre-units. That's larger than our normal Reisswitz detachments games, which are usually set at brigade or division level. When we do corps or army-level kriegsspiels, we tend to use brigades as manoeuvre-units.

Thanks to Bé for providing the article & phots.
