Punic Wars Impetvs

Punic Wars Roman versus Carthaginian Impetus game

Yes, that’s right, had my first crack at the full version of the Impetus Ancient Rules at the weekend with Roundie (Wayne Steward) down at the AWC. I have been meaning to get into these for a while as they

I Couldn’t Resist Indus

Indus Indian Irregular Cavalry or Pindari with Bows

I recently stumbled across Indus Miniatures – and when they announced a 20% off ‘Thanks Giving‘ Sale I couldn’t resist getting a few – even though they are aimed at the Indian 18th Century to Mutiny era rather than the later NWF

BC’09 Conclusion: Results & Aftermath

Battlecry 2009

Well what a weekend – we had had two really intense full on challenging battles, one rather frustrating indecisive game, and one very decisive win. As with previous BattleCry events games were generally played in good spirits and the environment

BC’09 Round 2: Medieval Portuguese & English Allies 1385AD

Battlecry 2009

BC’09 Round 1: Sassanid Persians with Sabir Hun Allies 463AD

Battlecry 2009

First up we drew John Calnan & Lance Knighton running Sassanids – this was exactly the same army that had undone us the previous year in the last round of BattleCry 2008 (BC’08 Round 4: Sassanid Persian with Sabir Hun

BattleCry 2009 Introduction

Battlecry 2009

Yet another successful BattleCry has gone by and congratulations to Karen & the AMERICA team for organising another great event, although the usual copious amounts of “loot” were a bit less (to be expected with the current economy) and I
