A few firsts this week with some new rulesets getting a first outing. First up is ‘Fast and Dirty Skirmish’ downloadable <a href=”http://www.freewebs.com/weaselfierce/”>here</a>. Lots of homemade terrain and figures from <a href=”http://www.pig-iron-productions.com/”>Pig Iron.</a>

Dane and Chris brought their Napoleonic naval to the table, <a href=”http://www.rodlangton.com/”>Langston Miniatures</a> 1/1200th scales ships and the <a href=”http://www.warhammer-historical.com/acatalog/Trafalgar.html”>Trafalgar</a> rules. The ships are truly works of art with tiny rigged sails.

Dane and Chris enjoyed the complexity and planning needing to gain an advantage over your opponent, as it is a little more involved than just moving up your ships and rolling dice until a ship got sunk.

Here is an in game shot. The game went in favour of the British but alas the French ships were sank rather than seized for their prize money.

On another table, Warriors of Chaos faced the new Tomb Kings in Warhammer Fantasy Battle. The game resulted in a crushing defeat of the Tomb Kings after 4 turns.

Finally a game of <a href=”http://www.wyrd-games.net/”>Malifaux</a>, an interesting game due to it’s diceless mechanics, steam punk based background and great figures. Played on a 3′ square playing square, it seems a great one for painters and terrain builders to make some great tables.
