Star Wars Bigger Battles!

This past Saturday, one member of our gaming group turned the big 5-0. Being the biggest Star Wars nerd there is, I felt it only appropriate we get most of the toys we've been working on over the lockdown for a huge 10 player game (we are all vaccinated).

 The Birthday Boy brought half his collection of 150 miniatures, (about a third Legion, two thirds stls from various sources), a dozen vehicles and I provided the terrain. Fifty units on the table. The result was a glorious battle!

Four hours later, the Empire stood triumphant. A series of brutal TIE strafing runs broke the Rebel assaults, but not without horrible losses. Oh well, there's always more stormtroopers.

Dr Who and the Mysterious Case of the Silver Knights


We wanted to show once again the versatility of the Fistful of Lead rules by crossing the new Horse & Musket 2nd edition rules with Galactic Heroes. What better way to cross the genres than with a certain time and dimension traveling Doctor?

The villagers of Little Tugwaddle have been disappearing since the mysterious Silver Knights started appearing. As they vanished, more of the seemingly invulnerable knights arrived. With the country embroiled in a Civil War the King's dragoons are sent to investigate. They are startled to find a stranger claiming to come from the future.

At first, it looked like the Cybermen would crush all before them, but then the Doctor started using his Sonic Screwdriver to convert the lead shot of the locals to gold, which is deadly to the robots.

The tide turned swiftly after. Fun game. You can watch it HERE
