December 2012 Catch-up

Grand Fleet action, 1/2400 Figurehead ships. A wind change catches the British fleet on the leeward side of an island.

Don't say anything, I know, I know... WAY TOO LONG  between posts. Well, sometimes It's hard for me to want to do computer things when I've been on the computer already all day long for work. All I can say is I'll try to do better. Today I'm posting a representation of the events for the second half of the year, both SNS and my other gaming club friends, WFHGS. I'll try to come back to some of these and post more pics as well. SNS games are held at GAJO Games in Sandy, Utah. WFHGS games are held at various homes of the members.

Normandy Firefight in 20mm. Great skirmish game.

Dystopian Wars. My British steampunk ironclads attempting to round an island and intercept the Prussian fleet.

Fire and Fury 15mm, WFHGS action. 

My Irish Guards AT 6pdrs try to hold off my brother Dave's Wiking SS in Flames of War, 15mm. Marginal victory for me (YAY).

WW1 Tank action in 28mm. Rules are a modification of the new Bolt Action WW1 rules. It plays extremely well, and you'll see more of this in the future. Tanks by Craig, owner of GAJO.

Trench action in the same game. My 28mm 1918 stormtroopers are about to take a trench line from the few Tommies remaining. GAJO has a big post about this battle on their website.

Back with WFHGS. Matt's Early war Germans blitz past a Russian farm (I tell you it's RUSSIAN) but are hit from a KV-1 off to the right. Our first try at the revised I Ain't Been Shot Mum rules in 28mm. Vehicles are some diecast, some 1/48 Tamiya or Hobby Boss.

Napoleonic French infantry advancing in columns. Gary Scott put on a BIG game of General de Brigade in 28mm.

SNS holds FOW night on the third Friday each month at GAJO. Here, Gary Rhay's panzer recon company sends their Panzerjaeger support platoon across a bridge on my flank. Only lucky hit for me that night was on the one tank that didn't make it across. Most disastrous FOW defeat I've suffered so far. Must get revenge.

More Fire & Fury 15mm with WFHGS. We really like this game, and we're painting more forces.

Another game we love at WFHGS is Warmaster Ancients in 10mm. Here, Matt tries to get his Seleucid Pike blocks into an attack before the Indian army overruns him. We'll be playing our annual WA mini-tournament soon after Christmas.

Bart Woods of NUTS wargame group has modified FOW for modern armor games. This was part of a huge 1973 Arab-Israeli bash at GAJO in 15mm.

Tanksgiving at GAJO. Battle of Arracourt, FOW 15mm. Using the lists from the Blood and Guts book. 

Finally, we come back to Sci-Fi. My brother and I try out the new X-Wing game. Great little Star Wars models, easy to learn, fun to play. More on this soon.
