H&HM Norman v Saxon (Round 2)

After the clobbering that the Saxons had received two weeks earlier we decided to pitch these large 250 point armies against each other in a re-match. Tim, Mark and I were in charge of the Saxons and Dave and Tony the Normans. Although the Saxons had 6 more units and an extra general, eleven of thes...

Napoleonic Naval: British v Spanish 2

For this encounter Steve had made some slight revisions to his rule system which seemed to speed up play and I feel, further improved the flow and feel of the game. Dave and Tony were the admirals in charge of the British fleet and Chris and I the Spanish. We divided the Spanish fleet into mixed squ...

Re: Hex based Napoleonic naval scenario (1200 scale)

Hi Norm, Steve has use a sponge and white model paint thinned with water to create the sea effect on the blue hex boards. Since this battle report he has done more work on the boards and they look even more impressive. I will post a report on the most recent game with plenty of photos of the new boa...

The Yorkists had 3 units of mounted men-at-arms, the Lancastrians 2. The Yorkists also had 2 more units of retinue longbo...

Hex based Napoleonic naval scenario (1200 scale)

This encounter pitted the British fleet of 8 ships against a Spanish fleet of 8 ships, both fleets divided into 2 squadrons of 4 ships. This was the second club game using a set of naval rules developed by Steve. IMG_1548.JPG IMG_1546.JPG This was my first game using these rules and it was a pleasur...

Re: H&HM 100 Years War English v Medieval Korean

The last time the Koreans hit the table in a club game was against a War of The Roses Yorkist army with plenty of mounted men-at-arms. However, the terrain was much more open and Tony used the Korean cavalry to shoot to death the Yorkist cavalry before dealing with the infantry. In this game by losi...

H&HM 100 Years War English v Medieval Korean

I suppose in wrestling terms this is very much a ‘catchweight’ contest between two very different armies – the longbow and heavy knights of the English v the mobile archers of the Korean cavalry and spear and firearms of their infantry. IMG_1511.JPG The terrain pieces were chosen and placed by Andre...

Re: WWII Armour/infantry scenario

All the miniatures are 15mm and are from Dave Mac's collection. Dave has modelled all this Hexon terrain using his own flock mixtures for both ground cover and hedge (bocage) cover. I think the terrain looks superb and is a real pleasure to play with. All the elements are modular and can therefore b...

WWII Armour/infantry scenario

Dave created a scenario to introduce armour into a hex-based adaptation of the Battleground rule system and see how this ‘combined arms’ game played out. Tim, Steve and I had 4 infantry sections, support from a 3 inch mortar, 2 Vickers HMG teams and 5 Cromwell tanks. Our German opponents, Karl, Nige...
