A few pictures from our club game last week. A play test of the Ramillies game we are planning for Battlleground. Good game and trial run which highlighted some issues and tweaks we need to make.

Obviously another WSS bash, apologies for posting this period again, but we only currently collect WSS in 10mm. However, I have my eye on ECW as my next project if I can convince the other fellas (or at least one) at the club to give it a bash.

If you are at Battleground pop along and say hi. We will be the fellas playing WSS whilst  wearing Tricorns (not my idea!)


French on the left defending Ramillies (closest), offus (middle) and Autre Eglise (far left)




Ramillies


Autre Eglise


The new Pendraken hedges - superb and as good as the recently released walls




Confederate advance


View from Ramillies


Action commences




Things are hotting up


A whiff of grapeshot


The mass cavalry fight on the plains near Ramillies


Meanwhile on the Bourbon left wing.... lots of fighting around Autre Eglise as the Allies go in hard


A birds eye view of the French left


Due to an hour of chatting during setup and some relaxed dice rolling we had to call it a night just as the Confederate and Bourbon centres clashed near Offus.

We'll make a few tweaks and paint up the last few units and will have another trial game or 2 before the the day. With battleground being all day we should have plenty of time to finish the game...... even with all the chatting at shows 😀

Each infantry represented 2 battalions on the day. Whilst each cavalry base represented 3 to 4 cavalry squadrons

No need to apologies for showing more WSS - its a great looking game with loads of stuff on the table, what's not to like.

Where are your roads from? I do like the look of them.

Hanged if I can see any reason to apologise for such tasty eye-candy. Though I don't like the little marker chips, speaking aesthetically.

Thanks - I keep hearing good things about Fat Frank. I think it's time to invest in improving the look of my table a bit.

Don't buy your daughters a pony, buy them heroin instead, its cheaper and ultimately less addictive.

Superb looking game Cool. What rules are you using?


Black powder. Works well for this period as long as each player has 2-3 divisions so if you fail a command roll you get another couple of attempts to move or do something
