13th September Games

Greetings

We ran two games last night; Mark ran a Lord of the Rings skirmish (the orcs won apparently), whilst I put on a Dark Age Lion Rampant game for Chris, Jake, Steve H and myself; this resulted in a victory for the Norse, but Chris has suggested an amendment to the rules reducing missile fire dice to half when a target is over half the firer's range. Given the bulk of casualties were caused by missile fire from the skirmisher units, I am inclined to agree and this amendment will appear on playsheets in the future.




Next week I will run a small scale play test for the Tanks game I intend to run at the Essex Warriors open day and also at SELWG, These shows are to be held on the 24/09/17 in Writtle and on 22/10/17 at Crystal Palace respectively, so please note your diaries accordingly.

See yer soon

6th September Games

Greetings

We ran two games last night; Dave K ran a further Bolt Action game - apparently the U.S. forces had the run of order dice, which is why they won (according to the German players. . .).


Steve H and I player Angels 20 for the first time in ages; I had been able to source some Italian 1/144 bomber models which allowed us to play out a raid on Malta. This did not go well for the Italians (i.e. me) with serious losses to the bomber force - the scenario requires some work to be balanced but was great fun all the same!


Next week, I've offered to run a Lion Rampant Dark Ages game.

See yer soon

P.S. I have been advised that Warlord Games are offering their TANK War supplement to Bolt Action as a free downloadable PDF during September; I hardly need to point out that this is a good thing?

30th August Games

Greetings

We were able to run two games last night; Chris and Alan were playing Dystopian Wars naval.


While Andy P ran a Starship Troopers game.



Next week a Bolt Action game has been arranged; I have in mind to run an Angel's 20 aerial warfare game. Hopefully a few non-SEEMS players might be interested.

See yer soon

23rd August Games

Greetings

My apologies for my absence last week; Scotland saw fit to bless me with a dose of the flu, which basically cancelled any activity other than being ill. I gather you were able to function without me . . .

This week only one game went ahead; thanks to Dave K for running a Bolt Action game as a further introduction to the new rules. A German victory in the game.



Next week, Andy P has offered to run a Starship Troopers game. There may be a Dystopian Wars game, whilst I'll bring either Memoir 44 or my Napoleonic naval collection.

See yer soon

A quite week without Neil;

Chris, Josh and Alan played Dystopian Wars.




While everyone else played the Battlestar Galactica board game put on by Steve H.

Next week, Chris and Alan are having a Dystopian Wars rematch, Dave K is putting on a game of Bolt Action and Steve S is bringing down some extra board games as backup.

2rnd August Games

Greetings

I ran the planned Wings of War/Glory WW1 aerial game last night - this involved a hypothetical scenario where Gotha bombers attacked an English town, which was defended by SE5.a's and a Sopwith Camel. Losses were about even but the Gotha's were able to successfully bomb the town.



I won't be down next week, but I gather a game of Battlestar Galactica has been arranged. Would someone post a brief mail with details of game for the following week in my absence please?

See yer soon

26th July Games

Greetings

My planned Lion Rampant game didn't go ahead due to lack of players; however, Mark's Barbarian fantasy game kept those present busy; the dungeon terrain is particularly effective as a preformed cardboard set.




Next week; I've offered to run a Wings of War WW1 game. The Gotha bombers of the Englandgeschwader will threaten Dear Old Blighty once again!

See yer soon
