SUNDAY'S GAMES

Here are some photos from the games we played on Sunday. The first of the photos are from a game I ran which is part of an ongoing dark ages campaign set in a mythical continent. This battle was between two Great Lords Percy and Robert for control of a land called Thun. The figures are 28mm and the rules we used are my own. In the picture above John, who was playing Lord Percy moves some of his figures.
Percy and Robert's warriors advance against each other.
 
The right wing of Percy's army crashes into the left wing of Robert's army. The remainder of both armies glower at each other.
 Lord Robert stands resolute on his hilltop.
One brave warrior of Percy fights against multiple attacks from the warriors of Robert. this brave fellow held out for two turns before enemy numbers finally overwhelmed him.
 The hand of fate hovers over the battle field 
directing the fortunes of all those it touches.
One of Robert's warriors awaiting the onslaught of Percy's legions.
Robert's warriors rush down from the hilltop
and a savage battle ensues.

There is that hand again - directing the fate of the warriors
as the fight for the hill rages.

Proof that there are giants who play games with us mere mortals!
After some very hard fighting Percy finally captures the hilltop and drives the remnants of Robert's army from the field. It was a very hard fought battle which could have gone either way.
Here are some of the other games being played. This was a very impressive looking 15mm game of Frederick the Greats battle of Zorndorf using Blackpowder rules.
 A wonderful 28mm Hail Caesar game in which the Seleucids took on the Galatians. Beautiful figures and lots of them.
