Just a few cool games....

For the second week in a row I have been able to enjoy some 'gaming. Last week it was some DBA 3.0 with Keith. This week some HotT with Andy.  These are all interesting games that seem to suit the currently busy life style. Short games with enough depth to challenge to the degree that you fell suited, without requiring the investment of 3-4 hours for a single outcome.

We managed four games in two hours (along with beer, coffee, sausage rolls, and plenty of good conversation). The first saw my 25mm French napoleonics fighting Andy's 28mm VSF army.

Game 1

French columns (behemoths), Cuirassier (knights), Old Guard (blade) and recruits (horde) with a hero general 
Germans.. a behemoth general no less!!!


Shooters ..

The raw recruits ..


The French stronghold


Quick game, Prussian hero general destroyed, and more points than I'd lost..
Game 2 ...




The result a reversal from the first game...  the evening was developing well, with honours evenly shared
 Game 3... weird world war 1 Germans vs British




The newest British behemoth .. first game ever

 



British Behemoth and hero destroyed, and the first ever outing on the table top for the behemoth .. sob! sob!








A hard fought encounter that went to the German army.

The fourth game saw Andy's British napoleonic army fighting the treacherous orcs which were as nasty as ever, with victory to the orcs.

No detailed AARs here, just a photo record of a great evening of games with some very cool looking figures and vehicles, with honours shared equally at 2 games each, beer coffee and sausage rolls enjoyed, and some of the week's stresses forgotten. That's why I enjoy this hobby, even after fifty years.
