Monday 14th December 2015 - DBM - Welsh v Western Sudanese.
As I have stated in the past I play DBM for the fun of it and I don't care if I win or loose. Chris challenged me to play with an army that I said was pretty poor - list 3.19 Welsh. The version we came up with had two commands of massed bow (backed up by Viking mercenaries); one of Cv(O) and supporting Bw(O); and one of mixed foot. As the game played out the enemy Camels stalled for a few rounds but our lamentable movement dice (eg a total score of 6 for 4 dice) meant that we couldn't take advantage. Once the Cm(S) got going our Cv(O) didn't stand a chance.
In the end only one of our commands was demolished with light casualties elsewhere. Given better terrain (most of our choices ended up in the enemies' territory) we might have done better. I, for one, will not be rushing out to buy a Welsh army.
On the other tables were: Game of Thrones boardgame
One Hour Wargames (WW2)
Ace of Aces (WW1 dogfight)
This Week - otherwise pretty quiet on the wargaming front but far too busy on the Folk Dancing side of things with calling on Sunday and Wednesday (also preparations for Friday and next Tuesday).
This Tuesday I was at the dress rehersal of Sherburn U3A's 'Jack and the Beanstalk'........."Oh No I Wasn't!"
