Gunfight at the Battleshed Coral

This week I had the pleasure of attending MacSver's Battleshed with an additional first time visitor in the form of Jimboba from Warchest, who had decided to take a break from updating his excellent solo wargaming\collecting\painting blog to travel down the road and play a game of Dead Man's Hand.

No great scenario, just a 3-way shootout (Lawmen, Outlaws and Desperados) with the vague (and pretty much ignored) objective of the central town gallows. Having fun and introducing Jimboba to the game were the main objectives of the evening, and I think they were achieved all round. Jimboba didn't even grumble about it not being 15mm (too often).

3 Outlaws prepare to fire out the windows
at an exposed Lawman.

Outlaws desperately try to defend the Undertaker's
from the advancing line of the Sheriff's man.

"Grandpaw", the oldest Desperado in town, shows his
experience by sneaking up to the saloon bar doors and
blasting the outlaw within with his shotgun. Ouch!.

VSF Card Buildings

Earlier in the year I had realised that I was very unhappy with my terrain options for "In Her Majesty's Name" games. They all seemed to be in the woods with maybe a single house or ruin. So I decided to make some Victorian Sci-Fi style buildings (I'm not a fan of the "Steampunk" label!).

I've been working on these for a while now (the final building featuring in a couple of  WIP Wednesday posts).

Adv_Sobh: The Good Barbarian(s)

The Barbarians are travelling through a wooded area when they hear a cry for help. A tree has fallen onto a human archer in a clearing and pinned her to the ground.

Ardaric and Fredrick Redmist move to help and try to move the branch enough for her to escape.

The rest of the party fan out. Just past the clearing edge anything could be lurking with intent...

Bombs Away!

Last night saw a 3 player game of WWI Wings of Glory hosted by MacSver and also attended by Bill. It was decided that a scenario would be most fun, and a bombing run at Cambrai was picked.
