AGM 2009

October 5, 2009 in Uncharted Seas

Well despite thinking that the AGM would be over on minutes we took about 90 minutes to go through all the stuff needed to ensure that the club remains for another year.

Games played this week included Lord of the Rings Mass battle game ‘War of the Ring’, Flames of War, Warhammer Fantasy and Necromunda. I played my first game of Uncharted Seas.

The game after a couple of turns, the Iron Dwarves battleship and cruisers take the left flank whilst their frigates take the right. On the Shroud Mage side, from their left we see frigates, cruisers, battleship and frigates. Leaving both battleships on the same side of the table.

The Iron Dwarven battleship uses its impressive broadside to drive off one of the opposing frigate squadrons and beginning to chip away at the hull armour of the Shroud Mage battleship from a distance.

The massive firepower of the Shroud Mage flagship and frigates destroy two out of three of the Iron Dwarfs crusiers, while heated shot sets the flagship ablaze whilst chipping away more hull armour.

On the other flank the Dwarven frigates punch over their weight tying up frigates and cruisers destroying several before being overcome themselves. The Shroud Mages remaing cruisers and battleship turn on the dwarven flagship, temporarily dropping anchor for better shooting the Intruder battleships shot begin to hit home but it’s own remaining armour is paper thin.

The Shroud Mage cruisers cross over the front of the Dwarven flagship providing targets for both port and fore guns whilst the starboard broadside hits and sinks the Shroud Mages battleship. At this point we called it a night.

Uncharted Seas is a fun game, not to expensive to get into, fleets start from less than £13 to just under £30 depending on the fleet (and metal parts), scenary needs are low and the models and quick and fun to paint.

Uncharted Seas 16th August

August 16, 2009 in Uncharted Seas

The game tonight was a classic battle of Good verses Evil, 3 starter fleets a side, Shroud Mages, Orc’s and Dragon Lords verses 2 Elven Fleets and a Dwarf Fleet.

As commander of the Shroud Mages the plan was simple hold the flanks with the Cruisers and Frigates from the Dragon Lords and Orcs leaving the Shroud Mages, Orc and Dragon Lord Battleships to concentrate on the slower moving Dwarf fleet.

As in war the plan changed from the start the Elves had deployed far to the right leaving Mark’s Orcs facing two Elven Fleets……. We knew the Elven Frigates would attempt to push around our right flank so we asked the Orcs to do what they do best head straight for the enemy fleet hoping that this would buy us enough time to pin the Dwarf fleet before swinging right to support the Orc’s.

The wind was in the faces of the elves which slowed them down but even so they were still very fast. Long range fire and some lucky dice pegged back the forces of good but the Elven fleet remained largely intact.

Mark’s Orcs in previous encounters have been pretty tough but they were not prepared for the swift movement of the Elves, the headlong charge brought him under the guns of several cruisers and whilst the Orc Frigates captured an Elven Cruiser they were under real pressure due to the speed of the Elves and some crafty magic halting their ramming move 2″ from the Elven Battleship….

In the centre the Shroud Mage Battleship “Imperator” was taking a heavy toll on the Dwarf fleet destroying a number a Frigates and a Cruiser (six sixes in one firing bound shame it was only a Frigate in it’s sights!!!) whilst Darren’s Dragon Lords exchanged fire with the Dwarven Frigates on the Right.

As the clock ticked by the Elves forced the right flank getting behind the Orc fleet whilst in the centre the Dwarven Fleet was down to it’s Battleship and a couple of crippled Cruisers with the Dragon Lords poised to round the centre island.
The bad guy’s probably shaded it on the number of casualties inflicted but the Elves having turned the flank were in a strong position to turn the Screw and win the game in the long run.

A great game and good to see a large fleet action.
