Battle of Wakefield
Monday 4th September 2017 - WDW
DBM - Tupi v Anglo-Irish - a strange battle with flank marches on opposite short edges of the table. The result was a draw (again Jim was the fourth player).
Lion Rampant - Attacking Wakefield Castle - not entirely satisfactory as both my artillery and bowmen were pretty ineffective. The attackers had too many useless troop types - knights and sergeants who could not dismount plus light spear who are only good in defence. Methinks the scenario needs some tinkering!
Sci-Fi Tanks - another outing for Andrew's rules. Two quick games were played in succession.
Tuesday 5th September
Starting on a new book: "Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs" - a collection of short stories set in the various worlds of ERB's imagination.
1) "Tarzan and the Great War" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch (30pp) - a small incident in Algeria but very atmospheric.
2) "The Fallen - A Tale of Pellucidar" by Mercedes Lackey (20pp) - set in the Inner Earth - somewhat ephemeral.
