Ptotal War

Jim and Matt had brought in some of their 15mm ancients. Ptolemaic Egyptians verses Maccabee\Hasmonean Jews. The rules being a heavily modified version of DBMM, DBAs big brother, and a game which I've never played before.

G.E.V. at Sea

Ogre rules but no Ogres in sight as we played a three-a-side game using G.E.V.s, the only appropriate crafts for fighting in this 'Waterworld'. Sides were All the Dave's (with Jeff, who was paying us a visit, as an advisor) verses a collection of oddballs.

Ended up playing Paul's conversion of the old boardgame Rivets into a table-top miniatures game. The original games was released in the 70's by MicroGames.

With the 30 points of Boppers to start with, I went and split it fairly evenly through the different types. Took all four of the possible Tiny Boppers, and two of the Big Boppers. In terms of programing I just had them matched off against their own type.

Bats Abroad

The new Battrick season is upon us, and it's all change in my One Day league with three new teams, two promoted and one demoted. The camper at the top of our league was neatly disposed of by the team that finished second, but not by beating him but by deliberately losing so badly as to force the offending team into the final automatic promotion spot available for the next level.

Stand By For Action!

A bit of aquatic action under the waves as Paul's Stringray models get a run out. Not Paul's rules but the ones used by the Warlords to run their demo games at the southern games shows such as Salute. A 'Save the Whale' scenario as two Stingray class craft defends the big creature from an attack by four Terrorfish.

Weapons of Self Destruction

The delayed St George's Day game, played on May Day instead. A warm up for what will probably be the game that the Furness Wargamers will put on at Phalanx.

All figures and terrain (excluding the horrid underlying bedsheets) by Matt who refereed the game. Rules are Warhammer Ancient Battles, original version and not the newly released WAB2, but with house rules such as tweaking skirmishers.

Colin, Tony and Martin as the Perfidious Celts, Dave S and Tel as the Heroic Romans.
