We are still here, honest!

To anyone reading this, you will have noticed a lack of updates on the front page.  This is purely down to oversight and the club has been meeting weekly and playing a good variety of games.

Since Fields of Raury the club has played an Age of Sigmar campaign and is currently in the middle of one for the latest edition of 40K.

Popular choices of game at the moment are Bolt Action, Star Wars Armada, Saga and 40K as well as frequent board games.

 

If you are interested in coming along, please make yourself known on the forum or our facebook group and arrange a game, or just turn up and take a look.

Last week’s games were The One Ring LCG, Shadow Games and a Dresden Files boardgame.

11th April

Just a quick summary of the action at the club this week. Quite a mixed bag. Horror boardgame action with Kingdom Death (the clue’s in the name), Bolt action in the deserts of North Africa, Steampunk conflict in Warmachine, Wizards battling it out in the ruins of Frostgrave and Napoleonic conflict, somewhere in the 19th Century.

Burma Battles

This week Paul and Tom returned to their ongoing Burma 1942 campaign with the Battle of Pagoda hill.  The retreating British forces must counterattack the Japanese vanguard to prevent them taking high ground commanding the only river crossing available on route back to Rangoon.
The battle started cautiously for the British as they built up numbers to clear the defenders on Pagoda hill.  Their initial assault falling back in confusion due to poor communications.  A second attempt by Gurkhas was more successful, wiping out the defending troops and securing their first objectives.

The British remove the final resistance from Pagoda Hill

The Japanese, meanwhile were bringing up their own forces and sent in a counterattack against the now British-held high ground.  However, things did not go the Japanese way and after taking heavy fire, temporarily fell back, leaving the British victorious.
