23rd February Games

Greetings

Only four of us this week - was it something I said?

Dave K, Steve S, josh and I settled down to run through the scenario Dave had put together for the game at Cavalier on Sunday; this worked out well and we should be able to run the game OK. If anyone has any problems regarding the show, please let me know asap. show details can be found at www.twws.org.

No decision has been made as yet concerning the games for next Wednesday due to the reduced numbers this week. Something to be discussed on Sunday, but if anyone has any ideas, let's hear them!

See yer soon

15th February Games

Greetings

Reasonable turnout this week;

Andy P ran his samurai skirmish game, held over from last week.


While I ran a Lion Rampant game to introduce my recently completed Norman force to the rules; Josh was able to get his Viking warlord off table with the fabled relics of Saint Haribo, but lost the bulk of his force to achieve this. The Normans will take a bit of getting used to, but I enjoyed the game.

Next week, wth the run-up to Cavalier on 26/2/17, Dave K has agreed to run a trial game for the zombie apocalypse scenario he has been working on. I have been able to put together a sign for the game and will provide backup table bits where necessary. Any other game offers?

Finally, I would like to offer our congratulations and best wishes to Dave Crook and his long term/long-suffering partner Laurel, who were married on Monday last. I was fortunate enough to attend the wedding and I am sure they will be very happy together.

See yer soon

8th February Games

Greetings

Reasonable turnout this week;

Steve H and I had a quick ACW naval game while discussing possible amendments to the rules in the event of a future display game.

While Mark ran a further play-test of this fantasy skirmish rules.



Next week I'll run a Lion's Rampant game to christen my recently completed Norman force; Steve S has offered to bring some board games, but another game would be nice . . .

See yer soon

1st February Games

Greetings

Bit quiet last night:

Steve S ran a Wings of Glory WW1 air combat game.


Whilst I inveigled Steve H and Josh into trying out my new Cold War naval game 'They Come Unseen', purchased from Osprey games recently.


I got chatting in the bar at the end of the evening, and thus remain unaware of any games organised for next week; can some kind soul please confirm the details?

See yer soon

25th January Games

Greetings

Fair turnout on a bitterly cold evening (roll on summer).

Mark ran a game of the Lord of the Rings.


I ran a small game of TANKS for Chris and Steve H, giving me the chance to drive a Tiger 1 against the two Shermans. All vehicles took damage in a game with some manoeuvring - and correct use of the Initiative rules this time! - before close of play.


Next week, Steve S has agreed to run a Wings of War WW1 aerial game. I'm not sure what I'll bring as I have taken delivery of the Osprey submarine game 'They Come Unseen', and may try that out.

See yer soon

18th January Games

Greetings

Fair turnout last night:

Dave K ran a play test for his Zombie Apocalypse participation game - this has been requested by the Tonbridge club for the Cavalier show on 26/06/17, so it's time to start sorting things out!


One of our visiting members - Mark S - brought along a pre-production version of a game called Feld Marschal, which covers the German invasion of Russia in 1941. The game has been under development for an extended period, having been started by Mark's father many moons ago. An opportunity for a play test was too good to miss, together with a discussion on marketing and a possible Kickstarter. Sorry, Chris, I couldn't get your good side in the photo.

Feld Marschal play test

Next week, I'll run a 28mm Tanks game, so if you have any available models, bring 'em along!

See yer soon

11th January Games

Greetings

Decent turnout last night for the time of year - it was my first meeting of 2017 due to illness last week. Mark ran a play test of a set of barbarian fantasy skirmish rules he is working on; this provoked 'lively discussion' as is often the case in these situations.

I ran a small scale TANKS game in 15mm using two Shermans against a single Pather; couldn't supply anymore as the necessary models are currently out of stock in most places.

The situation regarding the club's attendance at Cavalier in February has taken a turn for the better. We will probably be running Dave K's zombie apocalypse game at the specific request of the organisers; more news on this anon.

Dave has suggested we run the zombie game next week ahead of the show to sort out scenarios, terrain etc. So I'll sort out something as a backup game.

See yer soon
