SAGA League Update

Progress is being slowly made in the 2015/16 NWS Saga League. Before Christmas there were few games played in anger but plenty of practice games - since then there has been more serious activity.

So far the relative newcomers of the King Harold division have led the way with 5 games played. The Normans of Brendan have swept all before them with their combination of firepower and manouverability, leaving Scots and Vikings in their wake. It will take a hard act to stop the Normans making their way to the play offs.

There have only been three games in the King William division, where the Welsh led by Andrew are currently  leading - mainly due to Andrew having played in all three games. If the other players muster their forces then nay one can win this division. However apathy may favour the Welsh. Oh, also the arbitrary decision making of Andrew - the competition  overlord.

Four games in,  the Norse Gaels with their sneaky challenges  led by Geoff lead the King Hardrada division. However with only two points so far there is still the possibility of another challenger emerging, if they can come to terms with the vagaries of the Norse Gael battleboard.

Tonight's games

Vikings fighting some excellently painted Pagan Rus.

A game of Frostgrave which I am reliably told is the next hot thing in miniature gaming.

And more Impetus

Hinchcliffe Napoleonics

The NWS received these recently from James of the ANF.  They'd grown a bit too big for the rest of their Napoleonics, which is something I recall happening to the Hinchcliffe range.  As can be guessed they go back to the 1980s.  The big question is will they see the table of battle again?

This chap is BNC13 - Household Cavalry Officer at rest.

Hinchcliffe are still going:

A packed night of games

A Saga game of which we shall not speak.

Kings of War

A hands on game of Impetus

I'm guessing but I think this is some kind of Boxer Rebellion game.

Another Impetus game

A Chain of Command game that felt really nice

A bit of detail for the Kings of War game showing all the equipment that is needed.

And a rarity at the Napoleonic Wargame Society, a Napoleonic game.

Four games on the go last night, all different and all looked fantastic.

Saga - Pagan Rus take on an assembling force of Vikings.  Looks like we will need to get a snow themed Saga board and matching terrain.

Chain of Command, taking full advantage of the terrain.

WW1 fighting over the terrain.

Impetus Successor game featuring some terrain as well.
