|Contemporary sketch of the battle.|
The game itself is based on the Battle of Seneffe, south of Brussels, which took place in August 1674 between. French army under Louis de Bourbon, “The Great Conde”, and an army commanded by William III of Orange, the Stadtholder of the United Provinces, made up of Dutch, Spanish and Imperial troops, the latter mainly from such smaller states as Hanover, Brunswick and Celle.
I've taken some liberties with the orders of battle. Information is scarce but I do have the Dutch and French orbats but nothing for the Spanish or Imperial troops. Nevertheless the tabletop armies look the part and there are certainly plenty of troops destined to hit the table.

Do drop by and say hello on Saturday. You won't miss us as we're right by the door. Again, my heartfelt thanks to my 'army' of volunteers who will be helping play the game.
