Helm's Deep Trouble

Another game in Middle-Earth, using the same rules as last week. This time I sat out and watched on as the brave Orcs and Dunlending freedom fighters tried to storm the nasty strawhead's stronghold of Helm's Deep.

Moria Maul

The Dwarfs of Moria are camped in their Great Hall. But they soon spring to attention as two groups of Orcs come charging through the labyrinth corridors of the mines.

Nekkid Northerners

On Tuesday we played an Ancient battle in 28mm using a modified version of Warhammer Ancient Battles using Matt's miniatures and terrain. Matt's not too interested in 2nd Edition WAB which is due out soon (after a long delay) and has done his own tweaks to the rules and force composition.

Scenario is based on Mons Graupius. The last remaining organised Celtic force in Britannia are defending a ridge line in their homeland of Caledonia against the Roman forces who have nipped over the wall for a quick bash.

Easy as One, Two, Six

The Battrick season has once more come to an end, with a better than expected final standings.

Managed to bounce back and earn promotion in the First Class after being demoted down to Div VIII last season. This was despite messing up my team selection on a couple of occasions. First using my outdated default team, who scraped an unlikely draw with my nearest rival, and then forgetting to set a lower declaration point against another team, the match petering out to a draw. Still managed to go the season undefeated, 8 wins, 2 draws.
