16th January Games

Bit quiet this week, due in part to low attendance. Also it was rather nippy (being uber polite) so I don't blame anybody who decided to stay in last Wednesday!

Steve Harbron ran a card based Cthulhu game, which those involved seemed to enjoy. I ran a play test with the Portable Naval Wargame rules using my Italian and Austrian pre-dreadnought fleets for Jon and Dave Crook. The game ran well enough, but this has predictably started a 'review' of the rules by DC and myself.

See yer soon,

9th January Games

Bit of a flop from my point of view this week; I was feeling absolutely bushed, Dave Crook was unable through no fault of his own to attend club which meant that the pre dreadnought game had to be scrubbed, and I am still trying to get somebody to fix my car!

Karma, neh?

Thanks to Mark and Steve Slater, therefore, who provided games for those attending to participate in. I have attached a picture of Mark's Lord of the Rings game for flavour.

I intend to run the pre dreadnought game this coming week, other commitments and presence of hexed terrain permitting of course.

See yer soon.

2nd January Games

The first meeting of 2013 had a distinctly World War 2 flavour, with a Bolt Action game run by Chris (for which thanks as always), illustrated with attached photo. I gather the Germans put up a very stout fight.

As previously mentioned, I ran two scenarios for Angels 20 using variable pilot quality tables reworked by Mr. Crook, together with his own spotting rules. The FW190's and Bf109's had decidedly the worst of both encounters (see attached photo for evidence!), but all involved felt the game worked better for the changes.

Next week, I intend to run a pre dreadnought game using Bob Cordery's hex based rules and there is also an offer of a Lord of the Rings game for those preferring a sharp edge to their steel in place of high explosive.

See yer soon,
