Re: Romano British v Norman (2 games)

Don't worry Tony, I'll vouch to the fact that you are real!

Re: Romano British v Norman (2 games)

Hi Ratty
The playing area is 6 feet by 4 feet, not that compact, but I agree with you, in the photo it appears smaller than it really is! Probably because the chap in the forground is Tony, who is about 6ft 5 and broad, which does make the layout and the other two players appear 'compact.'

HHM Picts v Romano British

HHM Picts v Romano British This was the first outing for Picts in a club game. We have no Picts figures currently, so we improvised and used our Barbarian army, which seemed to look quite acceptable as Picts when they arrived on the table on mass! The ‘Pictish’ warriors were treated as ‘B’ class, a...

Re: Romano British v Norman (2 games)

On re-reading this battle report I think its fair to say that the photos don't really tell the story of the story of the two games. The speed and intensity of play with 6 players and changing players and table sides between games, all in less than 3 hours, meant that I was far too involved in playin...

Re: Mars kallistra

It's taken me a short while to locate the martian type Hexon boards in the unit - the boxes weren't labelled! I started with the desert flock then added red followed by a grey/brown flock to random areas of the board. I then covered the boards with a very light beige flock leaving a few areas with t...

Romano British v Norman (2 games)

Tuesday night club games between these two armies have always provided a good evenings entertainment and with six players, three each side these Hordes & Heroes games tend to be fast and furious. The Norman army was composed of 40% cavalry with a good number of B class armoured infantry and archers....

Re: H&HM Norman v Saxon (Round 2)

Hi Ratty, Please find the shield wall rule detailed below. You could perhaps apply this to units of High Elf Spears! Shield Wall Certain armies contain units which can form a shield wall, which reflect the way in which these particular troops fought historically. This means that units forming a line...

Re: fields

These fields look really great. I've been checking out various carpet tiles for use as cultivated fields, which I can then cut to hex shape and stick on hex boards. However, your fields are thinnner in depth and far more effective than the results I've achieved so far!

Romans v Gauls 6mm Ancients

Tony has produced the stats for a number of different ancient armies for use with the Hordes and Heroes game system. Tuesdays’ club game pitted a Roman army against the Gauls using some of Tony’s extensive 6mm miniature collection. IMG_2056.JPG IMG_2053.JPG The terrain layout was reasonably favourab...

Re: Mars kallistra

A couple of years back I made some experimental 'Mars' type Hexon boards for a scifi project. They are stored in the unit somewhere! I will seek them out and post some photos.
