Lasalle 18mm CANCON 2010 Demo Game

Hi All
Here are some pictures from the LASALLE Demo game that I participated in at CANCON 2010, (CANCON: The Canberra Games Convetion).
My daughter Hayley and I played a game of Lasalle against some friends, (Dave and Zels). Hayley and I trotted out our Penisular British, whilst David and Zels attacked with a French Division. We picked a British Dragoons Brigade (BDE) as our optional Brigade, (and they arrived in the nick of time)!

Most figures ar AB Miniatures, with some FANTASSIN Miniatures thrown in.
The Game was great fun. The highlight was the fist full of 5s and 6s Hayley seem to consistantly throw during the Fire Fights with the French attacking her,...
The game seem to get a fair share of passing interest. The EUREKA MINIATURES trade stall sold out all their coppies of LASALLE over the 3 days.
