Saturday 13th May 2017 - Horbury Library
Played 2 games of HotT - one on the lawn at the front of the library area and one inside.
Game One - two vaguely medieval forces - one with a dragon & hero - the other with artillery and lurker. The dragon turned up on the second move - was shot at by some bow - and scuttled off the board. The hero also took an early bath. So my side was winning with a great chance of victory......NOT. Nigel managed to batter me into submission so we packed away the 54mm figures before the rain started.
Game Two - Andrew v Nigel (Andrew won - no surprise there) plus Paul and myself. My Garden Gnome army doesn't often get an outing and it usually looses when it does. This time the enemy medievals/Normans came a cropper with their general biting the dust. I could put this down to my masterful use of fliers...but maybe not.
Monday 15th May 2017 - WDW
Bolt Action - Americans v Germans - this scrap featured an AFV with 2 x flame throwers plus an Mg that couldn't hit the side of a barn.
DBM - Etruscan League v Syracusan - an actual historical match-up. In the centre Al's C-in-C found himself in a sticky position and fell to a Warband onslaught. Said warband almost immediately doubled the number of routing commands. At close of play it was a 7:3 win to the Etruscans.

Currently de-cluttering my house. It's amazing the stuff that gets pushed into corners or put in cupboards and drawers! Nothing exciting has turned up yet but you never know.
