We didn’t get to fight a boardgame this week as I had to concentrate on some map projects which were priority but we did manage a Bolt Action game yesterday to have a break from our sword and sandal epics.I have been busy so I dug out a Bolt Action sce…

I Feel The Pain

Back to War and Conquest last night and once again a run out for the Seleucids, this time they were up against Legio XII under the command of Simon, we went for 2,200 points this time but it proved a mistake, more later.I managed an average Seleucid fo…

The Thunderbolts redeem themselves, just.

Posted on February 16th, 2018 under , . Posted by

I was in two minds to once again bring out the Seleucids but decided against it as I felt the Twelfth needed the chance to gain revenge on the Carthaginians and I really want to get the Seleucids up to 3,000 points for home games. This time however the…

A little pressed for time this week, several new map projects and another on Kursk, 1943, this will be the third and it has suddenly dawned on me it is the 75th Anniversary, hence the interest, a couple of the books are from Russian authors and one Ger…

When I told Julian I would reciprocate our Johnny Reb game with a game of L’Art de la Guerre I didn’t have a clue about it, so I watched a couple of videos on YouTube and immediately thought that is not what I like, however it was only fair to play the…

A dark shadow has crept over my wargaming efforts this week. It has taken a while but things are almost back on an even keel for the year ahead, we had our first War and Conquest game of 2018 today, a 3,000 points game Romans vs Carthaginians, no eleph…

Rubbish!

Posted on January 31st, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Club night and yes it was once again miserable, and very, very unlucky for me. The game was X-Wing which I have not played for a long time, I sorted out a couple of forces from the online Squadron Builder and saved them, I would print them off just bef…

Thunder in the Ozarks

Posted on January 29th, 2018 under , . Posted by

Recently a lad from Spain got in touch with the club on Facebook to say he is moving to the area and would like to pop in when he is settled. I found out he has actually moved to Carnforth just down the road, so I got in touch and offered a game. Julia…

Bolt Action at the club last night and as usual I sat down and sorted a list out an hour before I left the house, I was up against Simon’s Russians and he always turns up with a sniper, flamethrower and a tank, usually a nicely painted up KV1. I decide…

Too Much To Chew

Bitterly cold night last night to go to the club, sleet on the car and a biting wind. We had organised a four man game of Dead Man’s Hand which had to be modified due to the arrival of a couple of guys with nothing to do. We amended the scenario for si…

I thought I would do today’s report first and leave yesterdays until later, mainly because it has been an exciting day and it is still fresh in my mind.The game was a large one and we both fielded almost every unit we have, the Carolingians had three c…

The missus left yesterday and due to the strikes and rail closures had a tiresome journey to London but got there eventually, I am hoping I do not run into the same problems next Friday. Not having had a wargame now since the middle of December I organ…
