It is very easy to be cynical about the value of on-line polls, but I can assure everyone that we are very flattered to see Charlie Don’t Surf win the TMP Award for the best set of historical rules for 2010. This great result maintains our fantastic track record, winning first place with Sharp Practice in the inaugural awards in 2008 and then coming second with Through the Mud and the Blood in 2009. Thanks very much to all of you from Lard Island.

They were enthusiastic and well disciplined troops who were recognised by Napoleon as one of, if not the, best foreign contingents to fight under French command.
