Photos from the 28th August Meeting

Neil was good enough to take some photos for me at the last club day.  As always, if you have more to offer or comment, then chime in down below!

A full crew playing a board game - Temple of the Beastmen? Ross and Peter on the right, and I think it's the back of Garys head in the right foreground.

Ross and Peter deep in thought, while Gary chortles about a dirty trick he's just pulled on them.

The current state of the Hordes of the Things Campaign map that Craig is running.  

The current state of the Machiavelli campaign - watch those neutral cities and provinces getting hoovered up!

David preparing for his campaign fight.

David setting up his camp

Jim refreshing his grasp of the rules

The Goblins march!

The greenskins join battle with their mighty..........Duckragon? The joys of an element based wargame are that your imagination has no limits, provided you can fit it on the base!

Photos from the July 31st and 14th August Meetings

 This is a few photos I took at the July and August meetings.  If you're in them, and want to add any details, then chime in in the comments.

James and Peter playing Hordes of the Things, while Ross, Winter and Craig look on.

Craig and Peter to the left on the HoTT table.  In the background Jim and Rex are playing Black Powder, while on the right Harley is chatting to someone behind mine and Neils Kings of War game.

Rex and Jim playing Black Powder on a very artillery-friendly table, while Ceilidh explains the rules to them.

Craig is setting up to destroy James, while his teammate Peter looks on in awe at his generalship.  Ross is considering how to destroy his Dads army while Neil and Winter watch from the sidelines.

Start 'em young! Spencer checking out the Kings of War game I played with Neil, comparing Dads undercoated figures with Neils fantastically painted force.

The beginning of the club Machiavelli campaign.  This is a strategy boardgame set in medieval Europe. which is currently involving a large part of the club.  From left to right - John, Ross, Craig, Jim, Rex and Neil.  I'm behind the camera, and young James and Peter were late that day.

Jonathon has been getting into Black Powder in a big way - his first wargaming love was Napoleonics.  This stunning table is all his terrain, and his painted armies look even better then the terrain!  From front to back - Rex, Jim and Jonathon.

Harley and Jonas chatting about whether to break out their old Warhammer armies to give Kings of War a try.  Can't remember who's back on at the left, and at the front Spencer is impatiently waiting to get back to pushing little men around the table.
