I was tidying up my PC today, and came across these pictures from 2003. They are of a refight of the 1822 Battle of Pichincha, using 'Principles of War'. A lot of it was made up; I didn't have a detailed map or order of battle, but I seem to recall that the games was OK, even if PoW never really fitted the bill for this particular conflict.

I found these pictures on my Flickr stream (and with over 9000 pictures on it, going back eight years, I really do find lost things sometimes). They were taken back at the beginning of 2006, and show a game of 'Principles of War' using my 6mm Mexican Adventure figures. I thought I'd post them here to show the figures being used en masse.
A of the figures are from Irregular Miniatures, mostly from their dedicated Maximilian Adventure range, but with odds and ends from the US-Mexican War and Franco-Prussian War ranges as well.
