Northern Conspiracy Game Night - July 2011

This past Friday we had our monthly club game night. Since it was a summer month we had two games scheduled instead of the normal three we put on during colder months. Pictured on the left is Michael the game master for one of the two games: Viking Dawn. This local version of the megga-game from this past year's Huzzah! convention. Michael ran this game with the help of the other club members who participated in the Huzzah! game as part of our club's participation in the convention event. This large game featured plenty of Vikings, Saxons, long boats, cogs, civilians, livestock and other valuables to plunder! I didn't play in the game but everyone seemed to have boatloads of fun.

The other game was a battle of the bulge WWII game run by club member Charlie (pictured below) using 15mm figures and Battlefront rules. I played one of the three attacking German commands with a small infantry contingent and four Stug assault guns. The Stugs fared well against the American's Sherman tanks, but were unable to dislodge the stubborn paratroopers defending the small town. In the end time ran out with the Americans firmly holding both objectives. Good game by them. They took heavy losses in their armor assets but the Airborne held firm.
