Last Sunday saw the Rejects drive down to Sittingbourne for the Broadside Wargaming show. It was my turn to put on a game. After much deliberation (with myself) I chose to demo "The Battle of Killiecrankie"using Beneath the Lily Banners v3 The War of Three Kings.I painted up all the Scots a few years ago and recently finished off the last few Williamite regts.Postie was bitching that I didn't make bespoke terrain like he and Lee had for our last 2 Broadside game. I totally ignored him and used Posties normal gaming terrain that we use each week when we play. I've gotta admit to being very pleased with the results.Richard and Surj played the historical losers of the battle the Williamites.John and Dave played the Jacobites. With BigLee dipping in and out.I put in an optional rule of an initial bombardment. They threw a D6 and compared in to the chart 1=0 2,3=1 4,5=2 6=3. They threw a 3 giving them only 1 turn of artillery before the game started. They did manage to knock off 2 casualties on Locheils regt thoug
The sports hall filled up quickly and stayed busy most of the day; the company was friendly with wargame regulars rubbing shoulders with families who popped in having been to the pool next door; the club demo games covered a wide range of periods and were generally of a high calibre. This could describe every Broadside Wargames Show we have attended over the years and Sunday's event was equally good as any we have been too before. A small but very friendly show with great games and a good selection of traders.Posties Rejects have sort of adopted this as our 'local show' and put on a demo here every year. This time it was Ray's turn to devise a game and we were able to have two goes at his recreation of the Battle of Killiecrankie. Not only did we put on our annual demo game but this year saw us 'rebranded' with new Red polo shirts. Black seems to be the colour of preference for the majority of people attending these shows and we sort of merged into the background with our old black polo shirts. Now there is n
Once again we are fast approaching the Broadside Wargames Show in Sittingbourne. Posties Rejects have adopted this show as our 'local' and the one where we regularly run a display game. We've had a bit of success running demo's here and we're hoping to get an equally enthusiastic response with our game this year. Hats off to Ray who has organised everything, picking a battle to recreate and all the models needed. This year and we have had three playtest games to learn the rules (we are using the newest version of Beneath the Lillie Banners) and to discuss various aspects of the scenario. Ray has been tweaking the setup so we have a game that mirrors the historical events but allows enough freedom to give both sides a good game. Below are a couple of 'sneak peak' pictures from our test games. As usual we have tried to put on a demo game that reflects the best of what you would see at one of our regular games.
