AWI Game

We played a AWI Brother Against Brother
Objective was a foraging expedition by both sides. 

 My command with Marbleheader, Ragged Virginia Continentals and a squad of Riflemen
 Mike's Troops with Two squads of Rifles and two squads of Continentals
 Boe's Hessians
 Jim's British
 Jim's Replacement officer stands alone
Highlights included Boe's Jagers Charging and meleeing the Marbleheaders - the remnants of both squads were so stunned that they both skedaddled. 

At one point 4 of 5 British and Hessian officers had been killed - all due to random effects from morale checks.  2 British officers were killed when they ordered their troops to charge.

The British Color Guard stood if front of a nearly full squad - which failed to charge and then failed to cause a casualty at close range.  They withdrew in good order, then as a result of a morale check were forced to charge and eliminated an out of command squad.  The one remaining color bearer further withdrew and made it off the table. 

The Americans won on points, but an overall enjoyable game

Pot Pourri

On the Fourth of June, we had a mini-con/game day at a small Warplane museum.

My event was a tip of the hat to Market Garden.  Inspired by my friend's 24" road bridge, we decided to have airborne attack one side of the bridge and an American force attack the other side. 

The SS controlled the bombed out side of town, with a Gestapo squad (inexperienced shirkers) at the guard house.

Cold Wars

I had a pretty good Cold Wars
We built custom table originally designed for Frostgrave, but used it for the Empire of the Dead campaign I am running at the HMGS cons.
I apologize for the paucity of the pictures.

The center of the table was  covered with fog.  The Count D'Monay entered on the far side of the glacier .  They mixed it up with the Zendarians and withdrew.  The Anacreon club entered on the left side, the Darkfire Club entered near the Neptune statue and Scotland yard entered to the right.  
The Anacreon club had met the Baron Dr. Von Frankenstein who was looking for a "friend"- they never made contact.
Darkfire and Scotland Yard mixed it up pretty quickly and things were not looking good for Darkfire until they summoned a bunch of Zombies.  The zombies must not have liked the cold since they were not much of a  factor before disappearing.   Darkfire discovered a bunch of Evil Snowmen in the swirling mist.  The snowmen caused a couple of casualties and slowed down Darkfire.  Scotland Yard made a break for the temple, and were slowed down by some ancient carnivorous birds on the platform of the temple.  The birds died, but not after wounding detective Inspector Morse and Inspector Nick Angel.  
Darkfire decided that the small Cthulu statues would make good decorations back home.  Unfortunately they failed their arcane and picking up the statue summoned 16 zombies, which attacked the remains of Scotland Yard as well as Darkfire.  It became a scramble for survival and the survivors extricated themselves.  
The next installment of the campaign will be in November

The next game was Frostgrave.  It was a teaching game, but after the first turn or two, the players were able to keep things going on their own.
