A group of Great War Spearhead gamers (including the rules author Shawn Taylor) are planning a refight of the battle of the Marne 1914, in August 2014, using 6mm figures, in a chateau in northern France (sigh... think of the wine).

While I was keen to attend, it's simply not practicable (being in the middle of a school term). So ..

I've floated the idea of doing a parallel refight here in New Zealand, not of the whole battle but of something appropriate from 1914 (maybe Liege, or one of the battles of the Frontiers etc).

I'm floating the idea to see what interest there might be in participation in such an event. There are three of us interested in the idea so far.

NO decisions have been taken about which battle, or which scale of figure we would use (most likely either 6mm or 20mm). At the moment it is just an idea.

In 207 at Natcon Shawn and Robert Dunlop joined a small group of us in Christchurch to fight a part of the battle. Photos of that refight can be found here:

If you think you might be interested, please feel free to PM me.

Kind regards
Robin
