War of the Roses





Here are some pics from two 25mm War of the Roses games we recently played. I enjoy using Arty Conliffe's excellent "Medieval Tactica" rules.

They are fun, fast, simple and provide for a great game with a feel for the period.






Good Gaming,

25mm War of the Roses

Here is the freshest unit off my painting table! It's a 30 figure bill unit for my War of the Roses games. I use Medieval Tactica and it provides a fun and quick game with a great period feel.


So what's on the painting table now...I'm working on 10mm ACW for Fire and Fury! 

Good gaming!

28mm North Africa - Bolt Action


We've been getting into Bolt Action lately as a fun and simple way to game WW2. We wanted to limit the amount of heavy tanks and equipment so we picked the War in North Africa 1941-1943. 

So far we've been having a blast! I've been painting Germans and British, as well as my friend Chris. Tyler has been painting Italians, and John has been painting some French. 

Here are some pics from our last game:

My Bolt Action 8th Army figs!


This is the beginning of my British 8th Army Desert Rat force for Bolt Action. I've painted about the same amount of DAK, and have another box of plastic DAK on the painting table.



Me and some friends are planning a big North Africa game in the not too distant future. We have guys building Italians, French, and more Rats and DAK. It should be pretty epic!

Here are some pics:

The DAK!

A few pics from Nashcon.

Here are a few pictures from Nashcon in May. This is fantastic, regional convention hosted every Memorial Day weekend in Nashville, TN.

ACW



Figures fresh off the painting table!


Here's a test post to see if I can post to the blog with a mobile app! If it works out ok it will be great to post on the fly from conventions and shows! 



Here are some 28mm Old Glory ACW figures I recently painted. I'll be using these for my favorite set of tactical ACW rules "Johnny Reb"! This is my first foray into painting limbers and I think I'll paint one limber per battery.



Cheers! Cory

The War of the Roses!




The opening set-up! 


This Saturday morning, me and and My friend Titch, ran a 28mm Tactica Medieval game at Nashcon, in Franklin, TN. We were able to lay out the basic terrain the night before, so all we had to worry about in the morning was getting the troops on the table!


Tactica is my "go to" set of rules for my personal ancients and medieval gaming, but it also works great at conventions because of its simplicity and of course everyone loves to roll hand fulls of dice! We basically play the rules "as is", but we've made a few house rules to cover artillery, and made some of the movement / formation changes a little more flexible. A lot of people commented on the rules, and how they used to play and enjoy Tactica. One father walked by with his teenage son and said, "these rules are older than you"! A lot of people asked where they could buy a copy.

The Lancastrians are moving their troops!


We had a great time fighting out another battle between the Yorkists and Lancastrians. The Lancastrians pulled out a victory this year, but I'm certain the Yorkists will rally and raise another army for another battle next year! We run this game every year at Nashcon and have made it part of an ongoing campaign narrative.
