Gettysburg - Day Three (6mm)

Last night's game was a refight of day three at the Battle of Gettysburg, 1863, in 6mm scale. Mal, Richard and Doug controlled three Confederate corps and a cavalry corps (led by Jonathan), while Rob, Phil, new player Cameron (Phil's son), and Noel, were in charge of six Union corps and a cavalry corps.

Battle of the Bulge 2mm

On Friday 15th March 2019 I put on a Battle of the Bulge game at the club. Richard and Simon each had a panzer division, while Noel controlled a Volksgrenadier division, as the German side was tasked with crossing two rivers to capture the US fuel depot. Meanwhile, Mal, Doug, and Mark, each with a battle group of Americans, stood in their path. Jonathan and Phil took control of the German and American air forces respectively.

November Uprising 'Old Skool' 40mm Project

I've been wanting to wargame the November Uprising (1830-1831) - one of the nineteenth-century Polish revolts against Russia - for years. I wrote an article on the subject for Miniature Wargames, issue 220 (September 2001), based on a few Polish books, but have never got round to collecting the armies. I now have about a dozen Polish books on the war - more than enough to recreate the armies and uniforms for both sides.

Ottoman invasion of Poland

Phil and I brought down our 28mm Eastern Renaissance figures for a club night game on Friday 29 June 2018.

The scenario I devised was simple: an Ottoman Turkish invasion of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's southeastern borderlands (c. early 17th century). The Turks, played by Rob and Jonathan, had to take a fortified village (commanded by Noel) situated on a river; meanwhile, an allied relief force of Polish and German units (played by Phil and Pat), was hastening to the aid of the stronghold, on the Turkish right flank.
