Zulu War (August 2015)


The Zulu Campaign of 1879

The scene, thousands of Zulu's and less British and Natal, they face off for a battle of civilization over some other civilization, what will win the rifle or the spear.

This game was in 28mm Warlord Miniatures painted by John it was good to see and seemed like fun using Blackpowder rules.

Thin British line

There seems to be a lot of the buggers, thick as grass

First class

Zulu's push with their short stabbing spears

Part of the British line has gone already

Where are the red coats

Natal Native Contingent take on the Zulu


Looks like dismounted cavalry on the Zulu flank

The tide advances

Getting squeezed

The cavalry charge the Zulu

There's more coming







AWI (August 2015)

American War of Independence

or

The American Revolutionary War

We had our first ever AWI game at the club this month (this period of gaming is a great favourite of Steve M) this was organised by Jason.
There were a number of delays to have this game as we wanted to have it in May.
In the end we had the game and it was good, we used the Musket and Tomahawk rules with it's card system.
Nobody had any idea what was unit/s going to be activated, so think quickly about what you want to happen.

Any way have a look at the pictures and we try and get someone to write something about the game.

The figures are Perry and Wargames Factory.

A bit smokey

Keep going lads

Come on my boys



The British pressure on the farm mounted, the the Americans continued to hold

The American right flank had all but disappeared by the end of the day

Are the woods on fire?

These guys did nothing all day

Move over the river boys

The Colonials still have the objective
