Craig has organised the campaign using the quick play Hordes of the Things Fantasy rules and a map of Italian city states and villages centered around Rome. The armies are a mixture of historical and Fantasy. It is being played at one club meeting each month.
The campaign generated lots of noise, four battles, a siege, a fifth battle to be played, and the understanding that of course you can trust me, I am a Byzantine. Peter and and James G learned a lesson about punctuality - they arrived late and had already lost most of their villages. A great northern alliance is forming and morphing each season, while in the South three factions have formed.
Here are some pix from the meeting, with the list of those in the campaign below.
|Rex (Napoleonic British), Jim (Goblins) and John (Early Imperial Roman) plotting. John appears to be paying his table fee - good man :-)|
|Grayson had come along to support dad, club president James (Dwarves), Craig (Army of Hos-Hostigos) is the top chap running the show, and Ross is clearly planning something cunning.|
|Neil (Bretonnians), Jim (Goblins) and Craig (Army of Hos-Hostigos) - the game is afoot!|
|The Battle of Six Ones in progress. Grayson and Craig are all eyes and ears as Andrew ponders the rules about not fighting! Rex and John are intrigued. Ross is not too worried.|
|Jim and David played out a Clash of Goblins. No Titans here, just little, green, snot gobblers!|
|Grayson about to roll dice for his dad, James (Dwarves). Andrew was providing moral support. Ross (Army of Minas Morgul) came unstuck this game when his hero collected a cannon ball.|
|Gregory brought along his Death Watch Overkill box to continue assembling the figures.|
|Grayson and James checking out the embossed tiles that came with Gregory's Overkill set.|
|Some of the action in the hall.|
