I'd run this battle - one of the opening encounters in East Prussian in August 1914 - several times previously using Op14 and 6mm toys on a 3x4 foot table. This time we has rather a lot of 54mm toy soldiers and a 20x20 foot floor! I used my cut-down version of Funny Little Wars, adapted for the Great War.

Gumbinnen yet again....in 54mm!
Toys were provided pretty much equally by Lloyd (that's his Russians in the photo) and myself. We had an excellent turnout of players: John, Martin, Lloyd, Pete, Matt, Jack, Bish, Andrew and FLW author Mr PHW. My thanks as always to all who participated and provided photos.
...and another Russian attack sees them reach the town. But watch out for those newly-arrived Germans!
A very enjoyable game to plan and run. It's always nice to get the toys out and this was the first time that my Great War Russians have been deployed en masse.
More of this sort of thig coming soon!
