Ok, so that’s the ships and aircraft sorted out. But We still haven’t got a rules system to use. After some reading around its fair to say there isn’t a system on the market which can run a game of this size. Most systems abstract aircraft out of the game, […]
Pictures from uberzerg August 2010. Mostly Toms WW1 in 28mm Game. Got a good few games played that weekend, and found new uses for red laser spirit levels
Photos from games weekend October 2010 (back when we had a big enough house for this kind of thing), mostly photos of Toms "Great War" game
Photos from games weekend Feb 2011, some good photos of Toms "Great War" Miniatures
In the first edition of Hordes of the Things, Warband was definitely the worst troop choice going. At twice the points cost of Horde it was only slightly more combat effective. Thankfully in 2nd Edition they were buffed slightly, and the semi-official-unofficial errata to the HoTT rulebook brings them up […]
This was the first run through of Toms 15mm Anglo-Zulu game, using the “Battles for Empire” rules set. Pics taken in either June or july 2009.
While I was sorting out the photos from the last games weekend, I stumbled over these. Some nice shots of Toms 28mm WW1 collection not specific to any game. These make a good showcase of Toms figures, as well as being good reference for anyone looking to buy figures for this period

The night before salute was the debut of my 28mm “Hordes of the Things” game .. although we only got 4 of the intended 6 armies on the table, a close fought game ensued. Armies were 36 points per side (keeping the standard D6 pips). Mat and Tom took the ‘Forces of Light’ (Men and Elves), and Alex and James commanded the ‘Forces of Darkness’ (Mostly Greenskins and Chaos Worshippers). Although The Forces of light commanded the early game, with withering ranged fire from Bow and Cannon and a superbly effective cavalry charge by Mat, the Forces of Darkness slowly turned the tide with a countercharge of Ogres and Vicious Ariel attacks by Dragons. Allied Spellcasters held the line briefly, but were brutally cut off and killed by aerial attack. End Result : 2 Light-Side Commands Demoralised to only one Dark side Command demoralized. Victory to the night, but rematch pending.
Photos from the day trip to Belgium, 18th march 2011 .. Mostly WW1 reference material for our trench sections but a few nice shots from various sites and museums.
