We had five guys out at the club last night and two games ran. We collected $15 in dues but the room cost us $60 so here's hoping the silent auction at MayDay will be lucrative!
Terry hosted Chen and Scott in Warrior Knights.
Mark hosted me in a game of Songs of Blades and Heroes, in which my dastardly goblin forces (Mark's figures) had to burn down the town protected by some Bretonnian figures supplied by Dave (I think--it was all very complicated).
I'm not sure which of those two geniuses supplied the rubber barrels (in the background) that kept bouncing off the houses instead of setting them ablaze.... But the Bretonnians needed all the help they could get since they had to lug around giant guns (note the pained expression on the one fellow's face).
Overall, I though the rules played well. The game is about keeping the initiative and taking chances around activation rolls. My leader allowed useful group moves at the beginning but then quickly lost control, especially after Mark's leader scored a gruesome kill on one of my men and my line fled. I think this set could also be used for company-level play in the War of 1812 which might be an interesting experiment.
Up next: Hard to say. I have a game booked with Dave on Friday. The outdoors has it allure (I say, it was Professor Barnetson in the garden with the spinach seeds...), but I would like to build a few more plastic medievals I have to clean up a project. And I'll spray prime some more Star Wars figures tonight.
