Re: ACW/AWI Hex rules

Hi Tim, Play sheets for the ACW and AWI rules can be e-mailed to you on request. Dan has produced a Napoleonic adaptation of the rules which I'm sure he will OK us to send you a copy. As mentioned in the 'Battle chat' with Henry Hyde in December 2019. The intention was to release the Updated version...

Skype Game 2: WOTRs Yorkist v Tudor

For this second Skype game Sally teamed up with Alex in Canada to take on my War of the Roses Yorkist army with a Tudor army. The table size of 6ft x 4ft enabled quite sizeable armies of approx. 275 points to be pitted against each other with plenty of room to manoeuvre. We positioned the camera ang...

Sally’s High Elves v Paul’s Barbarian’s

With the wargames club still suspended due to the CV 19 ‘lockdown’ it would seem the right time for Sally to step forward bravely and play a Hordes and Heroes game. It’s been quite a while since she’s played so it was only fair that she should choose the opposing armies. Sally chose High Elves, a fa...

Re: Painting the 'Ming'

Thanks for the thumbs up! I researched some authentic Chinese symbols, but after painting the first few I decided that they didn't look right on the shields. I then started to just doodle various abstract patterns which would fit better onto the shield shapes. This use of 'artistic license' seemed t...

Hordes & Heroes via Skype: Samurai v Koreans

This was our first Skype game of Hordes and Heroes with the two players 3250 miles apart! Alex based in Ottawa Canada, and myself based in Warsop in Nottinghamshire. With the board and miniatures in the UK it was vital that the Canadian player had a clear view of the table and the exact locations of...

The missing battle reports - Games before lock down!

On the last two club nights on the 3rd and 10th March, before the club meetings were temporarily suspended due to the covid-19 virus, we played four H&H medieval games. I found the photos and brief notes for these which I never got round to writing-up. All four games featured a French Hundred Years ...

Hammerhead report 2020

Having watched and listened to what seemed like every Corona-19 virus filled news bulletin for three weeks, on Thursday, as the government undecidedly dithered, following the government guidelines we decided Hammerhead was ‘good to go.’ And, thanks to the support of the Forest Outlaws, traders, game...

Re: HHM shooting, impacts, hussite question

Hi Julias 1. Artillery can shoot at any target within range provided that they can trace a clear line of hexes to the target hex. However, artillery units must shoot at at any enemy unit moving into hex-to-hex contact in preference over any other potential target. Small arms shooters must shoot at t...
