27th March Games

A bit low on attendance again this week - and no food in the bar either! Thanks to Andrew for running his pirates game; the idea of making the rules available for player input will help their development, as I well know with the labour of love that was my Napoleonic naval rules.

Dave Crook, Steve Harbron and I played out a small Angels 20 game set on the Eastern Front. Poor Steve got the chop early on, and I was left to face off two Bf 109 G's with a lone LA5-FN. I managed to get away with a battered aircraft, but it was a joy to 'fly' and a lovely model to boot; one of the best in the new release in my view.

Next week, Chris and I will run a Hordes of the Things Sumerian game. So far as I can recall this will be the first time these figures have seen the light of day since Salute 2012, so it will be nice to give them some table time. Steve Slater has agreed to bring some board games to flesh things out - I have suggested Thunder Road for maximum mayhem!

Have a happy Easter and don't overdo the chocolate.

See yer soon,

20th March Games

A bit thin on the ground again this week - but much free food in the bar for those who attended! (unused buffet for a function earlier in the day, lots of goodies to stuff oneself with..which one did). 

Thanks to Steve for a Doctor Who game reminiscent of the Christmas game but slightly smaller scale, which was well supported. I took the opportunity to run an Angels 20 game using some of the new models from the Bandits High release which came out recently. Pictures of the models used are attached; suffice to say the USAAF took a pounding from the Fw190 D's shown. Revenge will be sought I suspect.



Next week, Andrew has offered to run his pirates game. Predictably, Angels 20 will be my offering. This time on the Eastern Front, with dive bombers and some all new Soviet goodness on show!

See yer soon,

6th March Games

We were a bit thin on the ground last week and the planned Old West gunfight had to be put off; thanks to Mark for stepping up and running a SWAT game for the benefit of those present.

Current offers for the coming week are the rescheduled Old West game, with Angels 20 as a side dish.

See yer soon,

27th February Games

Apologies if I was not seen to be running a game this Wednesday just gone; a major league show and tell was in progress with the newly released Bandits High additions for Angels 20! Thanks to Dave Kightly for running the promised Border Reiver game for the benefit of all those present. 

Next week, it is intended to run Angels 20 with some of the new aircraft now available and a Wild West game.

See yer soon,
