Steam Navy Punk

So a number of people at the club have the makings of some steampunk fleets. All we need now are some rules to play with.

Matt has discarded the idea of using Dystopian Wars (or its Fleet Action spinoff) despite having plenty of models, and has gone on to designing a heavily modified version of DTS, an in house set of rules that normally got used for Sci-Fi battles.

Phalanx 2017

A little trip on Saturday, heading down to the place where Napoleon would have been exiled but for a typo, St Helens; and the Phalanx convention at the Sutton Leisure Centre. A number of the Furness Wargames, both past and present, made their way down as well.

Steampunk Village People

A big (possibly too big) game of 'In Her Majesty's Name'.

A quite English village gets disrupted as nefarious groups from around the world converge to loot it's treasures. Five factions, and the GM controlled villagers.

Intended as a refresher game to get us familiar with the rules again, it tended to get bogged down a bit with the turn sequence.

The heroic band of the Prince of Wales's Extraordinary Company.

Frosty ADnD

Things go a bit old school! Modified 2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons but in a Frostgrave setting. All organised by Matt. Multiple parties entering the deathtrap city to grab as much loot as they can.

Gates of the ruined city.

Colonial Impetus

Something a bit different as Matt coverts the Baroque version of the Impetus rules to cover 19th Century action in the Sudan. Matt digs out his British and Mahdists, which are currently based for Principles of War.

St George's Tobruk


The annual St George's Day, or thereabouts, game, fought as an all day game on the Saturday.

North Africa, World War 2 and one of the many sieges of Tobruk.


 Tables galore in this big Rapid Fire game organised by Derek (on what happened to be his birthday.) and with extra terrain by Matt. Four separate, but adjoining zones, of four trestle tables each, for a total of sixteen in use.

Iraq and a hard place

Another Fistful of TOWS 3 game. This time visiting the Iran-Iraq war.

The Iraqis are to defend the terrain and prevent an Iranian armoured breakthrough.

There was no real point in trying to sit around in defense as the range of our guns were far less than the opposition Chieftains, and we were limited in our number of Saggers to two per APC.

The revolutionary guard didn't seem to be too eager to come forward, even an accidental shelling by their regular army allies didn't encourage them!

The opposition didn't notice me moving up my AA units till it was too late, and I managed to shoot down one of the helicopters. Surprisingly in the next turn they didn't withdraw the remaining two and both of those ended up shot down as well!

So despite being shot to pieces and only holding one defensive position I managed to scrape a win.

Fistful of Golan

6mm battle between the Syrians and the Israelis on the Golan Heights based on the 1973 actions in the region.

The rules set is Fistful of TOWS 2, the minis supplied by Dave M who is also in charge of the mayhem.
