14th November Games

Decent turnout again now the politics are out of the way for another year (see AGM Minutes on SEEMS Group)

Thanks to Chris for the Bolt Action playtest using his VBCW figures; bit difficult to see deployments due to the heavy cover on the table, but I think all players had fun......

"News for the BBC
The Government forces successfully routed and killed a number of worker revolutionaries in Hockley Essex yesterday. Spokesman The Right Honourable Sir K I Lethemall MP said that the revolutionaries lead by an unsavoury character known only as The Bryson suffered a notable reversal as they were forced from the woods. Unfortunately the government forces also suffered light casualties. Police are following strong leads as to the identity of The Bryson who it is said was skulking in the rear why his men died for his misguided cause. Any information leading to his whereabouts and a conviction will be rewarded by £20 by the Police."

My 18th Century naval game proved to be intersted, being the first of a series of linked scenarios set off the Indian coast during the American Revolution. More to come on this score, I think.

Not much planned for next week as yet. I shall bring the X-Wing stuff and would appreciate any other game offers in due course.

See yer soon,

31st October Games

Reasonable turnout this week. Thanks to Andy for running his pirates game (wi' a curse!), I believe as a test of rules it went OK. The arrival of Rob and Mark gave Andy Hunt and I the chance to run a much-delayed Angels 20 scenario, featuring my recently repainted P-40's in a runout against Bf 109F's over the Western Desert. It was a good game for me for two reasons:
1) I didn't get shot down.
2) I didn't get shot down.

You get the picture....

Andy scored two kills, blatting 109's with close range goodness from his P40's. The scenario I think needs a slight tweak to put the Germans at higher altitude for an initial 'bounce' as was so often the case in the Western Desert, but this was a really fun game. Pictures attached to illustrate.

As you know, the AGM is scheduled for next Wednesday 7th November and I would ideally like to start as soon after 8pm as possible, as we have a lot to cover. I would like to see as many of you as possible attending, given the nature of what is to be discussed. Please make the effort if you possibly can....

See yer soon,

Sneaky pirates...

Look at those 6's - BOOM!
