Battle Report – Rescue Mission – Skirmish Sangin

Okay, this game was an exercise in improvisation. What was originally planned as an all-out assault on a rebel fortress (cancelled due to lack of painting time) became a massive multi-person game (until we lost some players due to double booking) until finally it was down to a tight, three person game. And what a … Continue reading Battle Report – Rescue Mission – Skirmish Sangin

Battle Report – “Climb To Glory” – Skirmish Sangin

This week's battle report takes us back to Bazistan. The last few battles have been pretty Special Forces heavy so this time we're going to get the regulars on the table.

Dare You Enter… the Home of the Wolf!

SHOWING NOW ON A WARGAME TABLE NEAR YOU....  Halloween is always a great time to put some stranger things on your wargames table.

After that fell through, running the trial at a smaller event made a little more sense. … Continue reading Operation Dragon’s Hoard: 100 Years of War, Falkirk

Scenario: Warehouse Shoot Out

The start of this week saw the release of the film Free Fire on Blu-Ray and DVD in the UK.
