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

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!

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…

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…

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, …

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…

Something different last night, I took along my ACW ships using Smoke on the Water rules, an excellent set if at times a bit unwieldy, but once you get used to them they play fast and are perfect for a few hours at the club.I am not one for monitors an…

Another lazy night at the club for me, Rob brought along his extensive Sudan collection for a Black Powder game, not a fan of the rules but I will eat my hat as they work fine for this and we always have a tense game. My default setting here is British…
