Game Report September
Somehow I lost the summerised post for last month so here is an update from Neil.
Thanks to Dave Kightly for running a FUBAR WW2 game this week;
the jury is still out on these rules it seems. There are lots of good points in the set, but they do not seem to work for a pick-up game, but rather require very carefully organised scenarios. Pity, because they play well in other respects.
My play test for the new Warhammer Historical rules went OK; bit shaky at first due to lack of familiarity with the process, but two interesting games were played, hopefully the first of many. Thanks (I think) to Dave
Crook for the various quotes from gladiator movies - at least up to the point when the double entendres became more dangerous than the swords, from whence it descended into Round the Coliseum.
'Oooooooh, matron' indeed!
This coming week we have a Lord of the Rings game scheduled, while our very own Prince of Dorkness (pun intended) Steve Slater will provide Fury of Dracula as an alternative. Haven't decided whether to bring Memoir 44, Battlecry or Wings of War myself at this time, but I shall provide something.
