Last Friday was our club's first game night of 2013. We started things out with a bang with three excellent games and a huge turnout of members and guests. First photos are of Mark's WWII naval game using Axis & Allies War At Sea miniatures. The scenario pitted early war British and Free French ships against a fleet of Italian ships. I believe the allies won this game sinking many Italian ships in the process.
Next up was Earl's 28mm ACW skirmish game using Brother Against Brother rules. The scenario was taken from Sherman's march through Georgia and features all arms of the ACW: infantry, cavalry and artillery.
I played in Charlie's 28mm Napoleonic game. This was the debut of a set of house rules Charlie is working on that are called "Napoleon's Rules of War". For a first public showing the rules were surprisingly mature and quite fun. Everyone picked them up quickly and the results of the combats seemed historically reasonable. I'm guessing we'll be seeing more of these rules in the future...at least I'm hoping so.
