There will be an awful row about this.......A Zulu Victory

We played our first proper game of Ospreys "the Men Who Would Be Kings " last night at Sheffield Wargames Society . I Umpired whilst Ian took the part of the British and John over saw the Zulu Impi  , we used the Run to the Hills scenarios ,with afew amendments for the AZW not in the main rule book . Ian had 3 British Regular units one with the sharpshooter trait and 2 NNC units ,Johns Impi consisted of 3 married and 3 unmarried regiments .Things got off to a bad start for the Brits with each unit rolling for thier leadership trait which consisted of Drunkards ,Brutal and Ugly leaders ,the Zulus faired a lot better .Surprisingly the first kills of the game came from a unit of NNC taking out 3 Zulus ,after that things went down hill quickly for the British with a lot of bad dice rolls and the Zulus making good use of the go to ground rule to get close to the red coats.

Winter U.S Infantry for Rules of Engagement

Reorganised and finished painting the US infantry I originally bought for Bolt Action but as I have said before that set of rules put me off WW2 gaming in 28mm ,however ROE has changed that so I am finishing all my 28mm WW2 bits now ,we have a nice little following for ROE at Sheffield War Games Society now . My U.S infantry is a basic platoon with some support ,I still want to add a HMG and Med Mortor and maybe a couple of vehicles as well . The figures are a mix of Warlord and Artizan this allowed me to field a platoon where each figure is different , mat is as usual by urban matzPlatoon Command ,officer ,2 NCO's a Medic and a Rifleman1st section rifle group .NCO , Bar Team and Rifleman 1st Section assault group NCO and 7 Riflemen 2nd Section rifle groups as per the 1 section2nd section assault group , a rifle grenadier adds abit of punch LMG team Bazooka groupArtillery Observers
