The Fringe of the Seven Years War.

Posted on June 13th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

In keeping with my new project last night’s club game was a skirmish from the French and Indian War which kicked off the Seven Years War or World War Zero as some historians are wont to call the conflicts. I know it involved battles from Canada to Indi…

Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

Posted on June 6th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

We played Zombicide at the club last night, it’s been a long time since I played the game and it’s a shame because it is good fun. We had the Prison Break edition and as with most scenarios we had to get into the prison, take over a control room and op…

I am home alone this week as I might have mentioned, busy trying to stay alive until SHE gets back, according to her of course I am lost without her. It’s Moroccan salmon with spicy cous-cous tonight, and not out of a tin, take that. At a loose en…

A Ripping Yarn

We arrived at the club to find Rob with case on case of ‘stuff’, the table was set up as the village of Nateby, Lancashire, 1938 when the Civil War broke and turned the country on its head. It transpired that the Bishop of London had ‘acquired’ the Cro…

Rob had deserted us again for Club Night and selfishly taken himself off to enjoy the delights of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, Stuart stepped into the breach and brought an ‘epic’ Napoleonic boardgame which could supposedly keep eight players in play.W…

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

Last week I received the invitation by the Martin from Tabletop Club Rhein-Main to join their Rhein-Main Multiversum in Nidderau, Hessia. So I jumped in my car and drove across the Taunus towards the Wetterau, amazing weather with blue sky and bright sun to enjoy in the meantime. The Rhein-Main Multiversum is held in the […]

Winter has not done with us here in the Northwest, after one beautiful day at the weekend we are back to cold, grey and rain, as I type the heaven’s are just waiting to dump on us. We got to the club early last night and had to go back to the car other…

I was on my own again for the club meet last night and had not managed to sort anything out, I could join a tryout of ‘What a Tanker’ from Too Fat Lardies, despite being a rough Jack Tar and North Sea Tiger in my day the childish play on words annoys m…

Gangs of Rome

Posted on April 11th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

When I first heard of Gangs of Rome I was intrigued then thought why do I need another skirmish game, also I thought the figures were a tad expensive. Julian at the club has dived in with both feet and he brought the game along last night so that I cou…

Desperation in the Desert

Rob turned up at the club last night and kindly brought his Sudan Colonial troops and an exciting scenario. The British governor and his wife, Lady Black, the mother of Lord George Black, a family which now pops up in most of our turn of the century sh…

Target Germany!

Posted on March 28th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

I don’t seem to have enough hours in the day at the moment, no sooner have I finished two large map projects than I get hit with two more, one being 24 maps and I have not really checked out the other but it is a continuation of a history of the Luftwa…

Frustrations

Posted on March 15th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Mate Simon has fixed my broken PC and put the blame on the last people to touch it, that was the original firm, but as with putting my car into a service I have no idea what happens to it, but it has cost me dear and I have probably spent a lot of mone…

Under Pressure

Posted on March 12th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Doing a bit of catch up over the past week I should be finished several units by now and looking at getting a few more extra’s for the Seleucids but I slipped up on a couple of fronts. I got some unarmoured peltasts from Crusader but they arrived witho…

Wot, no Prosecco?

Posted on March 1st, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

At one point on Tuesday night I had decided not to bother braving the weather, the ‘Beast from the East’ as the weather pundits are calling the cold snap. We had had a flurry of snow and I don’t like driving in snow conditions, I used to do it a lot dr…

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…

East and West

Posted on February 14th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

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…

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…

It was the French Hans.

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

Posted on January 17th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

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…

Club game last night and we had a large turnout, almost a full complement, our leader Matt gave a small talk on how the year has gone, the club is healthy, Dan the treasurer showed how buoyant we are and asked for ideas to spend money in 2018. We were …

Once again things were left to the last minute for the club, maps to draw, customers to serve etc. Simon got in touch and suggested a War and Conquest game I know he likes Romans so it was an opportunity to get my Patricians on to the field of battle, …

Two Bombers and One World…..errr

Another dark miserable night when no one should be abroad, but it was club night, I took along my Wings of War stuff and went again for a ‘points make prizes’ game. This time we had two British bombers on a mission escorted by six scouts (Simon, Julian…
