May 6, 2012 in Club Nights
The local brownie group had the hall booked over the bank holiday weekend, so we moved our night forward a week to accommodate – it would be easier than explaining to 8 year old girls why we played with soldiers.
Stuart, Dane and Mark continue the Napoleonic action between the Turks and Russians.
Chris and Andy brought their newly painted Napoleonics for another FoG game.
In the back room, a motley crew played ‘Small World’, a great board game (cheers to Ade for bringing it along), we must play more board games – a large Memoir 44 is being planned. I sneaked in a win too – result.
Carl brought his considerable ACW collection along for a game of ‘Bull Run to Gettyburg’.

With the rallying call we all head for the Norman’s keen to pick up the scraps left behind once the two combatants have weakened themselves.
View from the Norman corner, Pauls knights are knocking chunks out of the Vikings until the Viking Leader charges in, wiping out the Knights and killing the Norman leader.
As the games closes, Normans are down to a few weak Warrior and Levy units, the Vikings and Danes are involved in a titanic struggle in the centre of the field, meanwhile my Vikings are largely untouched but have very little points to show for it, killing a bunch of Norman Archers…
Victory to Mark’s Vikings out stripping all of us, in terms of kills.
A cracking night in the Vale….
