5th June Games

Greetings

We were able to run the planned Gangster and Dark Ages games last night - the latter involved two forces (Norse and Anglo-Saxon) on each side with myself, Steve H and B plus Mike commanding. This was about as messy a Dark Ages game as one could hope for and ended in a bloody draw with three out of four leaders dead - two from the same combat!


  
 
Neil's concept of sheep is slightly confused.

I didn't have time to follow the Mad Dogs with Guns game but it seemed to go all right as there were no raised voices . . .



Next week, I've agreed to look out my Angel's 20 WW2 aerial stuff. Not sure what else is planned.

Finally, Steve H and I are off to Broadside at Sittingbourne on Sunday to run The Men Who Would Be Kings with scenarios for the Zulu War and the Sudan planned. Hopefully, we'll see some of our extended membership on the day.

See yer soon

29th May Games

Greetings

Down on numbers again this week, so I ran a Wings of War game for Mark, Andy P, Steve S, Mike and Steve B. Based around a bombing raid by a French Breguet bomber escorted by Spad XIII's and SE5a's against Fokker D VII's, the action was suitably fast and furious.
 





Next week Dave K has already arranged a Mad Dogs with Guns game, whilst I propose a Lion Rampant game using the available Dark Ages figures.

See yer soon

22rnd May Games

Greetings

Dave K reprised his Song of Fire and Ice battle game for Mark, Andy P and Steve S last night; this time it was a victory for the Starks (the North remembers!).

Game of Thrones GoT Battle Games Wayland Hockley

I set up my Bronze Age Greeks for a game using a Lion Rampant variant. Matt showed up after a lengthy absence from club nights, and since it was his first game with the rules and the period I graciously allowed him to win by losing my leader (Achilles) to archery - this hasn't happened before? - and dismally failing a number of morale tests, losing half my army in the process.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it . . .


We appear to be a bit thin on the ground next week, so I'll bring the Wings of War/Glory WW1 aircraft. The following Wednesday a game of Mad Dogs with Guns has been agreed.

A reminder that Steve H and I will be running The Men Who Would Be Kings at the Broadside show in Sittingbourne, Kent Sunday 9/6/19. ANyone seeking to attend please speak to me.

See yer soon

15th May Games

Greetings

A largely fantasy theme to this week's games; Dave K ran A Song of Fire and Ice (Game of Thrones mass combat game) for Mark and Steve S, while Rob and Andy played a game of Dark Souls.



Next week, I've offered to bring along my Bronze Age Greeks for a game using a Lion Rampant variant for the period. Dave K has offered to run the Song of Fire and Ice game again, having hopefully gotten to grips with the rules.

See yer soon

8th May Games

Greetings

I ran a large scale (four Terminator squads) Space Hulk game for those in anttendance last night, using the Wayland Zone Mortalis set as the basis of an equipment and artifact recovery mission. It all started well, but things went South with a vengeance for the Deathwing and there were no survivors once the Stealers got their mojo working. That said, the game was well received by those playing, and with a bit of tweeking and a slight change in the layout, this will be a game I'd run again.




Next week Dave K has offered to bring along his Game of Thrones battle game, and I'll have a look at a backup game.

See yer soon

1st May Games

Greetings

Slightly down on numbers this week, but we were able to run two games. Mark ran his Barbarian Fantasy game for Dave K, Steve S and myself, while Rob and Andy P ran a Fallout game, whcih attracted attention from some of those onsite. We were able to use Wayland's lovely labyrinth set up for the Barbarian game, so thanks to them for finding some and allowing our use.




Next week, I'd like to use this terrain for large scale Space Hulk.

See yer soon

24th April Games

Greetings

Dave K hosted a Western Gunfight game last night for myself, Steve S and Mark. Steve and I ran out winners on points but my posse took a pasting from long range rifle fire - being equipped mostly with pistols and shotguns being a disadvantage.

  

Steve H ran his new Hellboy board game for the rest of those present; I understand that no Hershey bars were harmed during the performance.

Next week, Mark has offered to run his Barbarian fantasy game; hopefully the Wayland dungeon board will be available. I'll bring Space Hulk for those who prefer their mayhem with more firepower.

See yer soon

Neil
