1) What ruleset did you use in your last game? - General Quarters I/II - Russo-Japanese variant
2) What armies were confronted? - Russian & Japanese navies off Port Arthur on the morning of 9 February 1904 (the morning after the torpedo attack)
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Yes
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - No, only second time for this variant though
5) How many players were in the game? - 3
6) What went well? - The Russians managed to get under way and formed up quicker than expected, they have managed to cross the T of the Japanese battleships :o
7) What could have been improved? - running the Russian hospital ship aground was a little careless :-[  Gunnery on both sides ;)

We are halfway through the game and should finish it next Saturday. The Russian Cruisers are potentially isolated to the west and may struggle against the more numerous Japanese armoured cruisers :-SS

I was too heavily involved in the game to take any pictures, I'll try and take some before we start next week and hopefully during the game

2) What armies were confronted? - Williamite (English, Dutch, Danish, Irish) and Jacobite (English, Irish, Scots, French) - Ireland 1690
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Yes. Very this was a demonstration / Participation game
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - Not for us but for many of the punters, yes
5) How many players were in the game? - 6 plus a couple of helpers and over the course of the day 10-15 show-goers.
6) What went well? - Very friendly game and quite happily surprised by the good things said about the game and our figures - all Pendraken of course!
7) What could have been improved? The river separating the forces was an issue especially at the coast end of the table and bogged forces down a little

A genuinely good time was had by all at the excellent Hammerhead 2024 show - will add some photos in the week

Thanks to whoever already posted a report on Hammerhead on Youtube you can have a 2 minute "flyover" view of this game:

Its the first game on the report and got to say looks VERY impressive  :-bd

Good stuff  :)
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
we are not now that strength which in old days
moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.

Lovely looking game.
I couldn't take two minutes of that music though!
28 minutes would have me throttling someone.

1) What ruleset did you use in your last game? - For King & Parliament with the Celtic Fringe extra rules
2) What armies were confronted? - Covenanters v Royalist (Kilsyth from the Montrose scenario book)
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Yes
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - No, but it was the first time for 2 players 
5) How many players were in the game? - 7
6) What went well? - a very enjoyable day for all involved with the Covenanters managing a very narrow hard-fought win
7) What could have been improved? - based on the feedback from the other players not much, if anything

Last weekend Pierre the Shy and I were invited back for a repeat of the Kilsyth scenario from our Montrose scenario book.

Most of the players returned and swapped sides, a couple of new players joined us.

This game played out significantly differently from the first with both sides making some different tactical choices. The game was even more closely fought with either side able to win depending on the outcome of combats in the last few turns.
