 Black Powder

Wednesday 10th October 2018

Fun game tonight, random forces and command ratings.

French were trying to attack down the table and the British, starting from about 3/4 way with 1/2 their army deployed to hold them off.

As it turned out, all the command ratings were about 7, which in Black Powder are rubbish and French struggled to get going.

It didn't help on the random unit allocation the British gained a lot of quality troops.

Still was a fun night and an easy British win.

Napoleonic Club Campaign

Wednesday 5th September 2018

Not much gaming was done between July and September. The next outing was the club napoleonic campaign.

My Portuguese and Jack's British were shadowing Arthur (now Bob's) command as they left Leon and were heading away to the north.

Arthur did a quick turn and performed a dawn raid on the British and their supplies.

The battle ended in a French victory, in that they managed to destroy a lot of supplies, however the arrival of the British reinforcements caused a lot of French casualties.

Due to the smaller nature of the forces we used 28mm this time instead of the usual 20mm.

Sunday 1st July 2018

WH40k game against Mark.

This was another game that counted towards his DofE and was quite a battle.

Can't remember who won in this Space Marine v Space Marine but was a good game.

Phalanx Wargames Show, June 2018

The club game for Phalanx this year was a demo of Chosen Men.

Game went well and had positive comments.

There was plenty of time also to look round the show.

As with other years a good selection of both traders and games.

The only down point as normal is the poor lighting.

April 2018

Only one thing happened this month, Salute

Another excellent show as always.

Always busy, but never feel crowded there's plenty of room to walk about and the stands/games don't get over crowded either.

As this is posted, I'll be posting the 2019 visit soon and already booked the hotel for 2020.
