The Saga begins.

A couple of months ago we had our first games of Saga. By pooling our troops we had enough for three 4point games going on at the same time between six of us.

It didn't take long for someone to come up with the idea of a Saga campaign. After checking what the Internet had to offer I came up with some rules and, like a fool, offered to run the campaign.

So far progress on the campaign has been slow. Not helped by our being ejected from our number one Wargames room for the past 15-16 odd years and a couple of the guys having family bereavements to deal with.

Here are some photos of our first few games using the Saga rules.

Zulu Attack

For this game, again fought some time ago, we used the Black Powder rules. Turned out to be one of the shortest games we have ever fought!

  The British are defending the hill with only a few stone walls, some mealie bags and a couple of wagons between them and the masses of Zulus.
 Only the left flank Zulu command managed to roll low enough to move for the first 2 - 3 turns, but it didn't take long for them to over run the camp!
 After 3 turns. The left flank is in the camp, the right flank has made one move toward the British defenders and the centre is still yet to move an inch!

 Having finished off the camp's defenders the Zulu left horn moves onto the British on the hill.
 Finally the rest of the Zulus roll low enough to move and with getting a triple move are on the defenders before they can blink.

The melees from this move more or less ended the hopes of the British of surviving this encounter. Only a handful remained and they soon ran off!

Another catch up post. This time some photos from a Napoleonic navel game that we played  a few weeks ago.

More WW1.

Our next game was another WW1 game. Again the rules were "1916". This time the Germans were in defence with the British and Kiwis doing the attacking.
This game started really well for the Germans. On the very first turn the only target for our field gun was a Mk IV tank. This tank was making it's debut and it started the battle in full view of our gun.
We fired and scored a hit and then rolled for damage. As you may have guessed, it was the end of the tank! This was however the only bright point of the game for the Germans. From here on we got slammed and finally rolled over.  Brit's 2, Germans 0.

It's been a long time since I posted some photos of our games. So long that I can't really remember what exactly happened. Anyway here are a few photos of one of our game since June.

We played a couple of WW1 games using a free set of rules called "1916". They can be found here

The first game saw the Germans attacking a British held line through a wood and a somewhat damaged town. The end result saw the Germans battering away to no avail.

As if the guns weren't enough.

The Germans start to advance.

Not what you want to see when you come around the corner!

No way through here!
