More CanCon Pictures


Courtesy of the very kind Mr Stephen Finlay:


Here and below, Victorian militia assigned to the fort stand to as the Russians enter the Bay. Note the gunners in the distance rushing to man their Nordenfeldt.

"Here they come..! Steady lads, steady..!" cries Sgt Bourne, his own voice cracking a little in the excitement of the moment.












Rough (!) terrain.






































The only way is up. Russian Infantry really had only one practicable way to attack - one unit at a time up the tram line.


Those cliffs were the only other means buy which the Russians could assauklt into te fort. A tough proposition.




Green pants infantry on the left; gunners on the right. About to come ashore for a hellish baptism of fire.





Fort Nepean; a tough nut to crack.



Cossacks in close country.





The last of the Fortress infantry desperately trying to hold out against the Cossacks who are on the Parade Ground. HM is not amused!

The Parade Ground formed a delta, the frontage of which the infantry could match their diminishing numbers to. It was excellent defensive terrain.

Just wanted to say thanks for a great game at CANCON and for the thoroughly inspiring terrain and models. Your demo game is a credit to VSFers everywhere! Huzzah!

Yours in a white wine sauce,
