Yes, likewise .... and hobnobbing with the current wargaming world's glitterati, too.  Wink  Thumbs up

Jealous! Who me? Not at all .... OK ... perhaps a little.  Grin

If they are “glitterati” that would actually make me a “paparazzo”.  Cheesy

We staged a re-fight of the battle of Lutzen 1632 at the recent WMMS show. Photos, etc, here - http://www.wfgamers.org.uk/resources/C18/Twilight/Lutzen1632.htm
Good looking game and report (coincidentally just covered Lutzen when reading Swords for Hire). The large bases are quite effective in representing the formations of the different tactical doctrines of the era although I did notice what appears to be a little warping(?) in one or two cases (possibly solved by sub-dividing the bases or simply using thicker material?).

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Great looking game and nice to see smaller scales at a show Cool.

Thanks. There was also a very nice WSS game in 10mm next to us but unfortunately I have no photos of that Sad

Thanks Westmarcher. The figures are not mine, my army is the smaller German states Protestant army, but I will pass on your comments. I think that the warping is likely to be because the figures you are talking about are kept outside in a shed.

1) What ruleset did you use in your last game? - Ten More Sons!
2) What armies were confronted? - Poles and Muscovites in the Time of Troubles
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Oh, yus.
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - still far from it
5) How many players were in the game? - 2
6) What went well? Hussars did exactly what they're there for, and the drabs gave useful fire support. Dragoons pulled off an effective ambush. Tsar Ivan III was captured, which will look good in the newspapers.
7) What could have been improved?  Pancerni Cossacks charged a Streltsi unit and were sent running. Small price to pay.

1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - MeG (Mortiem et Gloriam)
2) What armies were confronted? - Late Republican Roman vs Dacians
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - incredibly
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - hell no
5) How many players were in the game? - 2
6) What went well? - first charge whipping out a cohort, killing all the elite legions, wounding Caesar.

Top game, first run out of borrowed Dacians for this weekend. Lost 10-15  but learned a lot.

. . . whipping out a cohort, killing all the elite legions, wounding Caesar.

What? So you whipped out your cohort, and the Romans just disintegrated. What is this, Carry on up the Danube?

1) What ruleset did you use in your last game? - Another go at "Test of Honour" - the Warlord Samurai rules. This time with campaign rules.
2) What armies were confronted? - Japanese all round.
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Getting to grips withit.
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - Second through fourth plays.
5) How many players were in the game? - 2
6) What went well? We are much quicker at the game now. Quests (Drawn cards in a campaign context) add some interesting side-objectives, through most rely on pure luck.
7) What could have been improved?  Still feels like the dice are playing us, rather than us playing the game.

1) What ruleset did you use in your last game? - For King and Parliament
2) What armies were confronted? - Royalists v Parliament
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Very, but a little rusty
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - No, but haven't played with them for a few months
5) How many players were in the game? - 3, Our regular host Roy, Pierre the Shy and myself
6) What went well? - Pretty much everything Smiley
7) What could have been improved? - the Royalist chits

This was a test/practice game for Cheriton at Easter and I'm very please to say all went pretty well

So without too much more waffle on to the pretty pictures Wink

The troops of both sides advance, the Royalists on the left
  • Sergeant-Major-General Sir John Paulet's 'Tertias' of Foot
  • Major General Sir John Smyth's Brigade of Horse
  • Colonel Matthew Appleyard's Brigade - attacking the wood
Parliament on the right
  • Major-General Richard Browne’s London Brigade of Foot
  • Sir William Balfour's Brigade of Horse (from the Earl of Essex's army)
  • Lieutenant-Colonel Walter Leighton’s Brigade - well forward defending the wood


The Royalists have secured the ridge


Close fighting in the wood, both sides have already lost a unit of commanded shot


Parliament's Sir William Balfour's Regiment of Horse advance towards the limbered artillery on the road but fails to activate for a second time so doesn't charge home


More close fighting in the wood, the Royalists have lost a second unit of commanded shot and a unit of artillery


Parliament's Sir William Balfour's Regiment of Horse overran the artillery and turned and threatened the flank of Sir Humphrey Bennet's Regiment of Horse
They failed to activate for a third time that turn so didn't charge home
Sir Humphrey Bennet's Regiment of Horse successfully drew to turn to face the threat, 8, but Lord Hopton decided to redraw to improve the odds of activating again to charge
He drew a 2 and so Sir Humphrey's Horse failed to turn Sad I don't want to see


Parliament's Sir William Balfour's Regiment of Horse has destroyed Sir Humphrey Bennet's Regiment of Horse and set off in pursuit in the general direction of Alresford accompanied by Sir William Balfour
Royalist Sir George Vaughan & Colonel Andrew Lindsey's Regiments of Horse (one unit) have destroyed Colonel John Middleton's Regiment of Horse and are pursing to the south accompanied by the lightly wounded Lord Hopton


The final act, Colonel Matthew Appleyard's Brigade loses it's last unit and Colonel Appleyard is forced to ride off the field. With only one victory point remaining the Royalists concede
