What Happened In February?

February did roll around quickly! Our second meeting for 2019 is all wrapped up, and it was a good one. There was a good sized turnout and plenty of games were played. As usual we’d like to thank everybody who participated. Let the gaming roll on!

We had some of our regular games, and some not so regular. Flames of War was in attendance with the usual array of nicely painted 15mm World War 2 miniatures. Note the German trucks and tanks, those are 3D prints and not the usual commercial models – they look amazing!

And of course Art De La Guerre made an appearance. A stalwart regular game at our meetings it most certainly has become.

Impetus made a return this month, and some very nicely painted 28mm figures took to the field. In these pics the Byzantines tackle some English from the Wars of the Roses. Not sure who won… The version used was the eagerly anticipated second edition of the game.

John and I had a crack at the new Warlords of Erehwon fantasy mass-skirmish rules from Warlord Games. I feel they will be a good fit for all of those fantasy 25/28s gathering dust in many gamers’ collections. It uses the activation dice system seen in Gates of Antares and Bolt Action, and the rules are reasonably easy to learn. The factions are all classical fantasy types, so very easy to choose and use whatever range of models you like best. Games will speed up a lot (of course) once we properly get the rules nailed down, and I have now learned not to charge against Dwarf loonies with a chariot…

Speaking of Fantasy gaming, there was also a game of Games Workshop’s Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game. Makes me want to get me a copy so I can rouse the Easterlings and their Haradrim allies again…

Last, and certainly not least, was a mighty game of the venerable Napoleonic Shako rules. This was played in 15mm and saw a lot of units swirling about the battlefield, locked in mortal combat. A table full of 15mm horse and musket era miniatures always looks good, and this was no exception.

And that’s all for February! Once again, thanks to everybody who made the trip in to see us, and we hope to see everybody again on March 3.

Until then, keep gaming, and may your dice all roll well!

Last Sunday’s Meeting

A belated thanks to all those who attended the club meeting on Sunday. (Better late than never, says I… Well it is Friday today… )

We had a good turnout, seeing the usual miniatures games in action (Infinity, Impetus Basic and l’Art de la Guerre) as well as some new (to the club) folks bringing a rather interesting sounding board game that got some play.

See you all again next month!

Again, pics or it didn’t happen:

February Meeting

Our February meeting was held last Sunday and, as usual, we had some good gaming and met some new faces. A big welcome to all the new people visiting the club and thanks to the regulars for participating and making the experience so very enjoyable.

This month saw Impetus Basic, Infinity and L’Arte De La Guerre being played at the club. No photos though. 🙁

Our next meeting will be on the 4th of March. See you there!

December Meeting

A huge thank-you to all who attended our second meeting in Kingswood. The room was full of tables with games deployed in all their splendour, and judging from the general discussion everybody had a good time.

It was also good to see a wide selection of games being played. Games from fantasy (Age of Sigmar) to World War 2 (Crossfire) to ancient and mediaeval (L’Art de la Guerre and Impetus) and science fiction (Infinity) were being played.

These images have also been posted on our Facebook group, so some of you may have seen them already…
