I suppose the Cardinal's latest post needs a word of explanation here. Yesterday Ian and I trekked to Goulburn which is about an hour from Canberra to play a game of Hail Caesar at the monthly meeting of the Goulburn wargamers. There were three game in progress: 28mm Hail Caesar - Romans vs Dacians, 20mm Rapid Fire WW2 and 28mm Might and Reason SYW. The games are played in spacious rooms at the Goulburn Soldiers club a fine venue with excellent facilities including a very good and not expensive restaurant. The Hail Caesar game went well. I had not played the rules before and was pleasantly surprised at how well they worked. The Rapid Fire WW2 game was set on a glorious table depicting a 1944 French town being liberated from the Huns by Americans. The Might and Reason game used beautifully painted 28mm minis from the Cardinal's collection and was a real treat to behold. Hail Caesar used equally good looking figures from Craig and Willow's collections. Here are some photos from the day.
