It is probably the most apt name for a wargames show,as if you know Middlesbrough then you can understand the nick name Smoggy.
As you travel over the A19 flyover I always think of Mordor,as the flames fly from the chimneys at the large incinerator,pretty it ain't.
The show however is good,and has tried hard to replace the defunct Parade ground show that was staged at Stockton.
John and I weren't certain what to put on as a game,and due to time constraints, aren't there always,
I couldn't get my replacement terrain boards finished [or even started ] in time.
We decided to use Blackpowder rules and opted for a mid size encounter battle, French against Hanoverian Hessians.
John took command of the Hanoverians and I took my customary French.I gave each side ten battalions of foot and six regiments of cavalry,with the od extra light unit to make things interesting.
