LotRings Big Battle

A few pictures David P Snr took of a large battle of Lord of the Rings a few weeks ago when I was elsewhere. You can see 1 of David's five (5) mumaks on the rampage!

The battle was set up and played by young David and Martin

The lads have moved on to the Return of the King rules (correct me if I'm wrong?) for their Lord of the Rings battles so the troops now need movement trays and hopefully the lads will get some sand and paint on the soon!

All the terrain is from David P Jnr and snrs collection built by David P snr

Massive WW2 10mm

I've been pretty distracted with life and work of late but I managed to make my way down to the club to see what was on the go this Saturday.

It appears I have been missing out big time as there have been some spectacular battles on the go (last week the Riders of Rohan were up against 2 elephants!!!).

This week all the guys got together and done a beautiful looking 10mm WW2 game.

Four tables were used filling a third of the room.

Jon B prepared the excellent looking terrain for Italy in WW2.

There were six players on the day.

The Allied players were JP with his newly finished Americans plus John B and David P jnr with Commonwealth troops

The Germans for the day were John M, young Stephen and David P snr.

A blood bath in the centre of town as the Allies advance guard run head long into heavy German resistance.

Some more Germans making their way through a build up area. is that a couple of ninjas too?
