Title: 3 TYW 28mm FoG:R Reports from Oxford 2018
Post by: madaxeman on 31 October 2018, 10:11:12 AM
After a long hiatus, the 28mm mostly Warlord Games plastic and metal figures have crawled blinking into the light again for a 3-game 1-day competition (https://www.madaxeman.com/reports/Oxford_2018_1.php) held in glorious rural Oxfordshire, on the edges of the King's Civil War Capital.

The TYW Germans - chosen because they have the nicest flags, as well as some little gunnes - take on the Swedes, the New Model Army and the French in three large format, widescreen big battle reports under FoG:R rules (https://www.madaxeman.com/reports/Oxford_2018_1.php).

Be amazed how efficiently they progress through good planning and superior technology, and puzzle as to how Wallenstein and Tilly both end up on the same side in the same army as I deploy simply the nicest figures I can find and try and pretend there is a plan behind it.

There are three reports (https://www.madaxeman.com/reports/Oxford_2018_1.php), complete with the full gamut of Germanic expressions of amazement and horror, lots of photos, ridiculous captions and a full set of post-game analyses from Renaissance Hannibal himself.

Get back to the 16th Century today with these 3 FoGR reports! (https://www.madaxeman.com/reports/Oxford_2018_1.php)

A great report and a very nice looking pan-Germanic army.
