SDS in Germany!

Some pictures coming from a Con in Oldenburg (Germany) and sent by Michael (above with black shirt). The Con took place last week-end and Michael's Club now has more SDS player, thanks to this demo table.
The scenario designed by Michael was "Spain 1809" and the terrain is really attractive!
A couple of close-up on the miniatures (very nicely painted): above British infantry (light coy) with its Leader...
... and French Voltigeur firing. Michael uses small puffs of cotton for marking unloaded weapon, a very nice-looking way to do it.
Great job Michael, keep playing and sending pics!
