June 29 meeting

Another good turn out with 10 people coming along to play and talk toy soldiers. Craig and Ross brought along some of their Dystopian Wars fleets (Victorian science fiction or "steampunk") and John and Warrren joined in for a multiplayer game. Rex brought along some of his English and French Napoleonic figures and James brought the Sharpe Practice rules. Recent history was repeated, the French qualified for the round of 16 and the English took an early trip home (sorry, football humour ;-). Jonathan brought along his Space Hulk board game, which he and Vince played a couple of times alternating who had Space Marines and Gene Stealers. David and Neil came around to see what was going down at the Masterton Croquet Club.

June 8, 2014 meeting

Ten of da boyz came along to play toy soldiers today, and here they are.
Rex (sitting and probably wondering "what the hell have I got myself into?"), Warren, Vince, Neil, Andrew, Gary, Ross, James, David and Craig.
Craig and David brought along boxes of armies for simple, quick play Fantasy and Science Fiction rules, Hordes of the Things (HoTT). Everyone had a go, except Vince and Andrew who played the deciding third game in their current series of Ancient games. The HoTT armies included Martians, Lizardmen, several from the Lord of the Rings, and 1920's gangsters with Al Capone as a sorcerer, he makes people disappear ;-)

Rex and David getting to grips with a pair of Lord of the Rings armies. David's Horsemen of Rohan and Craig's bad boyz from Mordor.

Warren had not played HoTT before, James has played DBA, which are Ancients rules similar to HoTT, and Craig, who has about 24 HoTT armies.
Some of Craig's Lizardmen. Click on the pic to see how cute these beasties are.

Ross, Gary strengthening his bones, Neil and James.

Ross, being cheered on by his dad t-shirt ("Ross, I am your father"), with Gary and Neil.

Vince's Medieval Polish invaded Wales. Vince and Andrew were playing 15mm Ancients using DBMM 200, which are rules for half-sized games.
