Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

DSCF7500.JPG The elves moved some archers to support the dragons, but the majority of their forces consolidated their position ready to face the brunt of the greenskin attack. Unfortunately for Mark, most of the wooded areas where his troops cowered (I mean stood proudly ready to fight to the last)...

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

The elves in the centre advanced into the woodland. A strong force moved up the slopes of the hill on the right flank. Two units of flyers moved into the gap the orc chariots were also heading for, I was getting worried the elves would succeed in denying a way through for the heavy chariots. On the ...

Re: The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

My orc force consisted of: 1 Hero General, 4 Generals, 6 Horde units (arranged into 4 blocks of 6 stands each), 6 Mountain Orcs, 3 Heavy Chariots, 3 Wolf Riders, 2 Giants. Now it was Mark’s turn to be surprised when he realised I had no missile support or flyers! My plan was simple, close the gap an...

The Battle of the Watch Towers- Orcs versus High Elves

The Battle of the Watch Towers. The orcs victory at Yoke Falls drew more clans to the war banners. Many of these roving bands were intercepted and wiped out by the elves seeking to isolate the main orc force, hoping, that as the noose tightened, the orcs would succumb to infighting and then scatter,...

Re: ACW 6x6 game at Gettysburg

Many thanks for posting. It's really interesting to see how you fit a great game onto a small playing area. I like the idea of the off board artillery duelling with each other and trying then to support their own troops on the board. Great stuff.
Many thanks

Re: Solo Hastings first victim :)

Great report. I thought the Normans were doing well to stick to their plan- I often start a game with a plan which then gets thrown out the window as soon as the game starts (if only my opponents would agree to follow my plan, life would be so much easier!).
Look forward to the next installment.

Re: Ottoman Turks v Samurai!

Many thanks for posting. Another great report. When placing terrain, does the neutral third party have choice over what and how much is placed, or just options on placement of specified pieces?
Best wishes

Re: Battle of Bosworth

What an epic! Even with the bigger table, the massed ranks looked truely great. Pivotal battles such as this always throw up so many "What if's..." and provide intriguing possibilities for gaming
Many thanks

Re: Mongols v Feudal English Round 2

Hurrah for good old Blighty!
Great game, the English archers held well this game. I think the terrain helped, but the English formation seemed to hold up well to the concerted cavalry assault,
Thanks for posting.
