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.

Re: Mongols v Feudal English!

Great report. Many thanks for posting. I've found light cavalry extremely effective troops, and very hard to defend against from a staic infantry position. The speed of movement and ability to flee or evade make them very hard to pin down. Let me know if you find any ways to counteract them so I can...

Re: Battle of the Three Way - Samurai v Samurai

Great report- the new samurai look great! It was interesting to read a battle report between 2 armies chosen from the same army list- even though the makeup of each army was quite different. Great stuff,
Many thanks and a Happy New Year
