EWG club night May 7

We had 11 guys out at the club last night with four games running. This was an excellent turnout given that everyone played all day on Saturday at MayDay.

There were games of FUBAR and Warmachine that I did not get pictures of. Dave hosted a game of Big Battle DBA using a late-Roman army facing down some horde or other.

Scott and I played two games of 1812: The Invasion of Canada. The games split, with the first one seeing an American win in about 1813. Below you can see the hordes of Detroit have crossed over and entered the western flank.

Game two saw a British win, again in 1813. And interesting bit of play in the east, with a British army sitting in Albany blocking American reinforcements while an American army besieges and sacks Montreal to block British reinforcements. Montreal was eventually relieved and then operations along the thinly held frontier commenced.

Below you can see the Americans surging up towards the Niagara peninsula. Eventually there were landings, with Scott drawing every damned boat card there was in his deck. I eventually cottoned onto this gimmick myself but Scott clearly played the lakes better than I did.

Up next: I have four winter hills about ready to finish. Then onto some 15mm forest pieces. And then back to some 1/72 ancients.
