Early Periods

Skirmish at Harelaw, 1592

The Age of Mary Stuart, The Pikeman’s Lament, 28mm First of all, sorry for not updating this website for a while. the thing is, I’ve moved house, and life got in the way. Mind you, I only missed one week’s game, but I haven’t had a chance to update the site – until now. I’ll

The Battle of Worcester, 1651

The English Civil War, Pike & Shotte, 28mm It was the League of Gentlemen Wargamers weekend, up in Kirriemuir. That means a fun multi-player game, and the chance to hang out with friends for a couple of days. This session was no exception. Last year, we agreed to play an English Civil War this weekend,

The Battle of San Bonifacio, 1512

The Italian Wars, Pike & Shotte, 28mm German Michael had been whining about not playing a Renaissance game for ages, so that’s what we did this week, just to keep him quiet. When I arrived he’d already set up. It was only a 6×4 foot table, and he’d so many troops he filled all of

The Kirkwhelpington Skirmish, 1644

The English Civil War, The Pikeman’s Lament, 28mm The hiatus in my gaming was down to a trip to North Carolina, for the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s carryings-on. Fresh from the pirate trail I arrived at the club without any lead, but managed to get involved in a small English Civil War skirmish game, laid

Battle of Thespiae, 86 BC

The Roman World, To the Strongest, 28mm The plan was to play two Ancient games, one with Gauls against Romans and the other one with Romans fighting a Mithraditic Pontic army. However, someone had the bright idea to merge them into one big game. So, that’s what we did. On one side we had Bart’s

The Battle of Thatcham, 1644

English Civil War, For King & Parliament, 28mm This week we returned to the English Civil War, and a small game set during the Second Newbury campaign of 1644. A Royalist force under Lord Astley was deployed to the east of Newbury, blocking the path of the Earl of Manchester’s Eastern Association, who was trying

Slaughter on the Redesdale Road, 1592

The Age of Mary Stuart, The Pikeman’s Lament, 28mm This was a strange week. First, we’d planned to play an English Civil War game, but then the Royalist commander couldn’t make it. So, we planned an Ancients game instead, and that fell through when the Roman player crashed his car. So, at very short notice we

The Battle of Driffield, 1644

The English Civil War, For King & Parliament, 28mm Everyone enjoyed these new rules when we played them last, so we decided to play them again. Ken and I both produced a matched pair of armies – six regiments of foot, six of horse, a dragoon regiment and a battery of guns. While my Parliamentarians

The San Juan River, Mosquito Coast, 1665

The Spanish Main, The Pikeman’s Lament, 28mm This game was a result of some hasty improvisation. For various reasons only Bart and I were able to play this week, so we wanted something “quick and dirty”. We settled on The Spanish Main, and our second clash between the Buccaneers and the forces of His Most Catholic

The Battle of Montgomery, 1644

The English Civil War, For King & Parliament, 28mm This was something of a big day. Several months before, Ken and I playtested these rules, written by Simon Miller and Andrew Brentnall. This week, we were using the finished rules, which have just come out. Back when we ran the playtest, the battle we were
