Battles of the Week, 19 June 2016

In case you missed it, the boys and I played some more Force on Force, posted here.  It's an expanded version of the Contracting Trouble scenario from the FoF rule book.

And here's what everyone else was busy with:

Into the Maelstrom wins the internet this week with a great game of Bloodbowl featuring Elves versus Humans (Part 1).  Narration is in the pictures, so if your browser supports it, you may be able to just click through the pictures like a slideshow.  Works great in Chrome.  He also has an LoTR battle posted, with Nazgul chasing Hobbits.

Speaking of click-through slideshows, the same worked for this Star Wars:  Imperial Assault game from Wargaming with Barks.

Joy and Forgetfulness has a quirky Napoleonics game up and a Victorian Afghanistan battle posted.  The latter is quite fun.

For some more Napoleonics, check out Kaptain Kobold's big Waterloo game.  I've always wanted to play one of these expansive affairs.

Fawcett Avenue Conscripts has a tournament dungeon crawl game up, played with the Otherworld fantasy skirmish rules.  I'm not acquainted with the rules, but it looks like it was fun.

Toy Soldiers and Dining Room Battles has a LoTR battle report posted in two parts - Part 1 and Part 2.

And, as usual, we close with Frostgrave.  Nerdly Darkness has a game on a neat hand-crafted board up, complete with an ancient library.


  1. Thanks for the mention. I had little to do with organising that Waterloo game; I just reported it afterwards :)

    It was a pretty small-scale affair compared to the one our organiser, Ralph, was involved in last year for the bicentenary:

    1. Wow. That's some grand war gaming. Thanks for sharing.
