Many readers will be aware of the contribution of Tony Bath to our hobby, and in particular his timeless epic book "Setting up a wargames campaign".
In that volume, he used his mythical Hyboria ancients campaign to illustrate every aspect of wargame campaigning, in fine detail.
At one point, for a few years, I had under my stewardship the collection of most of Tony's original flat figures used in his campaigns... and took the opportunity to photograph just a few.
It seems somehow fitting to include a few of these photos on this blog as a sort of museum piece!
Graf von Grunt commanded the Vereinigte Freie Stadt (?) at the battle of Mollwitz, the Grand Duchy of Lorraine being led by Fritz von Tarlenheim - 'no doubt', quoth the historian Charles Grant, 'He who played such a part in the affair of the Prisoner of Zenda', a century and a half later. Such is to be found in 'The War Game'by the same Mr Grant.
I recall reading Tony Bath's exciting account of his developing Hyboria campaign in Battle magazine, 40-odd years ago.
OOps... I meant 'an ancestor of him...' Yarooh...
