Solo-Micro for ANZAC Day

April 25, 2016


Having failed to get my gaming group excited enough about an extra day of gaming, I decided hey, it’s been over 2 years since my last wargame of any kind: let’s set up a solo wargame!   Now you’d think that with endless Punic-Period armies a-building, I’d run an ancients game, right? Well you would […]

English (IV/23) v Scots (IV/16): A trial for vid recording

February 5, 2014


It’s been a heck of a long time since my last wargame, but my usual opponent Angry Anderson found himself family-free and after a TTG version of an RPG session, we went one game on a standard dimension table. The only difference between our set-up and the rules was that I laid down the terrain […]

Assyrians v Bedouin (2)

May 2, 2011


In the reverse match of game one, Assyrians got to defend their own arable ground. At last, a chance for the mighty HCh to sweep the impudent raiders away! Or not, as it turned out. The Assyrian position was a road smack down the middle, a steep hill on the right half-way to the enemy, […]

Assyrians v Bedouin (1)

May 1, 2011


After the long-sufferng Early Hebrews were rubbed out by my Early Bedouin (c) in the previous two games, I really wanted to try them against tougher opposition. What better than the Neo-Assyrian Later Sargonids? Here’s a summary of the first battle: My Bedouin defending, I stuck with the exact same board as last time. My […]

Early Bedouin(c) v Early Hebrews: Reverse Match 2

March 30, 2011


Game 2 In this the second of the reverse match games, my Early Bedouin (c) played defender against the Hebrew invaders. I laid the bad ground out fairly evenly around the centre of the board but with broad gaps between opposite bad goings so the wily Hebrews could not scoot between each in a single move. A dune […]

Early Bedouin(c) v Early Hebrews: Reverse Match 1

March 28, 2011


My last completed project – which seems a long time ago now – was the (c) version for early Bedouin. I proposed a set-piece where they would have two games against the Early Hebrews, one defending one attacking. The only difference to rulebook is that the aggressor is known beforehand for each game. Game 1: […]

IWC 2011

February 25, 2011


Although things didn’t work out for me – meaning that I wasn’t able to enter the IWC 2011 as I had intended – I visited today as a spectator. The DBA tables are right down the back of Shed 11. I had the pleasure of meeting Mark Davies – whose excellent blog is an inspiration […]
