6 Mailed Fist – Manchester Recreation of the Battle of Kunersdorf – During the Seven Years' War more than 100000 men clashed in a decisive battle near Kunersdorf – east of Frankfurt. On 12 August 1759 a combined allied army of 41000 Russians and 24000 Austrians – under Field Marshall Pyotr Saltykov – defeated and scattered Frederick the Great's Prussian army of 50900. So great was the defeat that after the battle only 3000 soldiers from Frederick's original army returned to Berlin. The battle represented the penultimate success of the Russian Empire under Tsarina Elizabeth Petrovna Romanov and arguably was Frederick's worst defeat and ultimately led to end of the war 7Yrs War 15mm

13 Lance and Longbow The Attack on Venlo 1372 from the First Guelders War of Succession. During the 14th century the Duchy of Guelders is one of the prominent regions of the Netherlands then still referred to as the Low Countries. After the death of Duke Reinald II in 1343 the throne is claimed by both sons Eduard and Reinard III but they are minors. Local noblemen seek to gain advantage so Eduard is supported by the Lord of Bronckhorst while the Lord of Heeckeren supports Reinald. Eduard won the civil war but was killed at the Battle of Baesweiler in August 1371 then Reinald III died in December that year. Neither brother had children so the succession moved to their half-sisters Maria (supported by the Bronckhorst party) and Mechteld (adopted by the Heeckerens). Venlo is one of the important towns in Guelders and joins Maria. In late summer 1372 the Heckeren party lay siege to the town. In our partly fictitious scenario the Heeckerens are laying siege to Venlo and a Bronckhorst relief army surprises the besiegers who have to fight the enemy mostly on foot. The demo game uses Hail Caesar rules and displays a broad selection of Low Countries Heraldry and 25-28mm wargame figures ranging from good old Lammings to the latest outstanding Claymore figures Medieval 28mm

20 St Helens Spartans Infinity Demo Game – Infinity is a 28mm metal miniatures game simulating special operations and skirmishes in a high technology sci-fi universe. Infinity recreates Direct Action operations which are quick lethal and very risky. Missions are executed in the midst of a combat zone or behind enemy lines but always in critical areas where the level of risk is the highest. The player assumes command of a small group of elite troops specifically chosen before the battle begins to suit the mission's profile. This allows players to tailor their team's composition depending on the current mission fielding different operatives from different units to find the professional troops whose skills may be the most useful during the operation Sci-Fi 28mm
