Big thanks to Grahame for organising and to all for such an enjoyable campaign.
The table looked spectacular, well at the beginning anyway! I do like the dynamic of this rule set as in the game it was really "bloody", but I only actually "killed" two units and lost one. There were however several units on both sides of the table that were blown/ spent and were, for want of a better phrase, "licking their wounds", much more like the history books tell it.
Loved it!
If only we could settle things after coming out of winter camp !!!
Anyone up for and all day game in the new year?
Andy
Agree with all of this! Thanks Grahame
With regards to further campaign or all day games, Ash had (mostly) painted figures on the table last night, you can't let that be just for one game!

Agree!

Also, actually, it's not *that* expensive to get involved (hint for those who missed it!) - OK, I know Gary can put on Edgehill on his own, but a Warlord Starter box is £60 from PE2Collectables/Reuben, and that gets you 4 units of shot, 4 of horse, 2 of pike and 2 of commanded shot. One metal command figure, and a quick paint job (mine were, I think the second lot of figures I ever painted) and you're sorted.

The only side note is they're a bit of a sod to assemble, but the basic rule seems to be 'arms nearest the body on the sprue'...

We do, I should note, have an all day game day spare on Remembrance Sunday, which I am about to cancel unless someone has a use for it.

Or I still have some Renegade metals left!

Unashamed plug!

I agree Mike I went that way too, that's still 14x60 = £840 just in plastic Smiley That's not factoring all the time to assemble, paint, ink and base  them. Just wanted to quantify the epic effort from club members.

Grahame,

Many thanks for an interesting and engaging campaign.

I, for one, am up for an all day game and/or the 1644 campaign you mentioned. I've been thinking of adding a couple of units to my Parliamentarian force, and this would be a great excuse  Grin

Thanks again,
Colin

I am missing the Royalist Commander from Monday.

Pippa has checked and she does not have him. Can you check your boxes in case you gathered him up by mistake?

Many thanks.

I took some photos. They're on my phone. Not brilliant: my photography skills simply couldn't do the sheer size of the table!

I took a couple, but this is the only one that turned out OK. It at least shows the scale of the table and both armies arrayed for battle.
