I have been gaming a bit more this year, despite feeling pretty rough occasionally. Monday night has been largely boardgaming lately. we played another round of Zob's gangster game, with me running the games creator a close 2nd at the end. The week after we played Firefly, bought by Nathan at Crusade in Welsh Wales. I really like the game and am looking forward to playing it again, it really catches the flavour of the series and I can't wait to be misbehaving again.
Last week I put on a game of Longstreet fro Panjo and Andy. As their first game they each had identical forces, 3 units of infantry, one of cavalry and a battery of 3 guns. Andy, commanding the Union force, chose to attack and went at it hell for leather. If he could charge, he did charge with everything that could charge.
|Union infantry advances|
|Reb cavalry on the flank|
|Reb centre collapses, but the flanks are secure.|
The other game I played was Chain of Command at PAW 2014. This was played for Gav of Baker Company to show off his new Winter War range of figures and vehicles. He provided the terrain and troops, Nathan and I just had to roll dice and have fun. Here are some pictures of the troops and tanks.
|A platoon of Finns, supported by an MG and a sniper|
|A platoon and a half of Russians, with 4 assorted T-26s as support|
|Russians advance and get shot to pieces|
|Massed charge on the right flank. URAAAAAAA!!!!|
|Hand to hand was decisive but costly for both sides.|
All in all it was a good day out and, despite suffering on the Sunday, I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so that I am considering getting some early Russians and Finns in 15mm. I also got a couple of bargains at the show. Another copy of X-Wing for the princely sum of £10, giving me 7 TIE fighters and 4 X-Wings now. Then, as the day came to a finish I picked up Officers and Soldiers of the French Imperial Guards Books 1 and 2 by Histoire & Collections. Cracking little uniform books and only £3 each.
So, there it is. All in all not a bad few games. Tomorrow is the Devon Wargames meeting again, so expect more pictures on Monday or Tuesday. Have fun and keep rolling those dice.
