Had a brilliant day out at Donnington Race track again, enjoyed it , talked to old and new friends meet up with people and as you see abouve spent some hard earned cash.
The show was in the huge hanger and laid out well and many wonders to see and some great games, did not have time to take any pictures.
Sasissa had soem new and unseen bits to which i was drawn and eventual succumed to getting more to my VSF,/Western town Church/School house another Tavern/hotel a great new Stage coach, a Gaslamp Ledge Gypsy Caravan and last the huge new Cattle Barons Ranch house fantastic.
4 ground horse hitches, a great flat bed Wagon,some useful yard fences. warbases some tokens , ladders and bases for my round 25mm. fighting 15s had me 2 blisters of shadowforge amazons for my Army, 2 dark sword miniatures i could not resist Strong Belwas and Daenerys.The new Brick lane commune from Northstar, and a great set of shield transfers to use on my oldhammer barbarians and fantasy, another pack of trees for my FOW (should be enough now), 2 nice Hologram posters, and paints and spreys and glue (they cost more than you think)
Got to play a game of In her Majestys Name on my new board and complete town and set up I have, Lord Curr vs the Scotland yard company (my own collection not northstars offical) Rolled up a leader for the Yard as i did not want to use Sherlock.
3 x 3 board used all my buildings and a few bits out of my skirmish box, we decided to play the first scenario to test all the rules and see what was needed or missing
Lord Curr (Alec) won most of the iniatives and the 3 objectives were the prizes
The Yard (Kevin) move in and outnumber the renagades by 2
Lord curr seeks advantages in the terrain and lines of sight
he grabs a young lady as the mad man rushes forward
the rest of his man taking cover
A brave Officer grabs a second young lady
Currs man spirits the prize away in a few turns as gunfire starts to fly
The company advances under poor fire from the Yards carbines
Felicity runs form cover to cover to flank the coppers
A volley fire from the Yard dispatches Mad Mick in a hail of bullets
Lord curr take out the officers shot by shot
a second officer help and covers the first
More volly fire starts to take a toll on the company
A detective rushes felicty who has shot an officer causing her to fall
Currs men flank and take down more officers
it now becomes a fire fight close hand
Chief Detective goes to assist the detective in handeling Felicty
The final lady is grabbed by one of currs men , as he lays out fire from his Arc rifle
Felicty stand up and the huge Mohan Singh machingun rips apart the cheif detective she backs off firing and felling the Dr and another Police officer, the Company wins as the Police retire with only one young lady
Thoughts Currs company is tough, shot guns poor but his rifles and back up from felicty and Mohan Singh are good , poor Mick was taken out early doors, a good all round force
The heroine of the game she is devistaing used right
The Yard have a big advantage if you have enough rifles volly fire is excellent course and evens up lower ranked characters...
My thoughts some bits to remeber as always and we used the 1 your out of ammo so tokens needed, again plays very well, and is easy to pick up, enjoyable afternoon , more to come
