Poison Spitting Elephants Rampant

A game of Dragon Rampant, and the first appearance for my still not completely finished 'Dank Elves' - so-called as they are a cliched version of Dark Elves if that is at all possible. Made up from a box of Oathmark Elves, with Frostgrave Cultists and some converted Gripping Beast Dark Age Warriors as the elves subservient human minions.

Jim has a combined 48 pt force of what seemed to be Pirates assisted by poison-belching elephants.

 Mark (fielding his necro army) and me 24 pts each.

Cruel Seas

Report from the Tuesday night game at Furness Wargamers. A game of Cruel Seas from Warlord Games, with Matt providing the Flotillas and acting as GM. The game is new to all the players, who are trying to get their sea legs in this first ever play.

A German Tanker is moored near the coast overnight, protected by a Flakship. But they were not to get much sleep as the Royal Navy attacks with 4 Vosper MTBs (commanded by Keiron) along with a couple of Fairmiles (Ben) for support.

Very British Bridge

Something a bit different as Ben brought out his 1930's 'Very British Civil War' figures and rules which were modified from the VSF 'In Her Majesties Name'. In the VBCW setting, the country has gone to pot after the non-abdication of King Edward VIII.

A convoy of BUF vehicles are attempting to cross a bridge, the checkpoint being manned by some Bobbies, who have also called in help from some Home Defence Volunteers. To make things less one-sided there are also various units of communists lying in ambush.

New Guinea Guinea Pigs

 A game of Bolt Action, arranged by Kieron And Matt and the first outing for their Pacific forces.
Set in New Guinea, Japanese vs Australians, a simple capture the building scenario.
The Australians have a Matilda while the Japanese have a couple of tank shaped vehicles.

Things were quite slow moving given the size of the forces, so there is some ongoing discussing as to how to speed the system up.

Ghost Archipelago

A four-way tussle in this first game of Ghost Archipelago at the club.
Figures and the majority of the terrain supplied by Matt.

A number of boats existed for those who wished to go cruising.

Others started deep inland. (Each player started at a separate corner.

Certain lanes existed for some long-range magical sniping.

Snapping Turtles and betrayals abound as everybody tried to run with the loot to the 'safety' of the beach.
