At our 19th July meeting, a large Napoleonic battle was fought using Black Powder rules. The French battled against the Austrians for most of the day.
At our meeting on 19th July Simon Miller, author of To The Strongest, visited the club and ran two iterations of a game using his rules. The rules have some innovative mechanisms which kept players on their toes.
The game was based on the Battle of Nicopolis fought in 48 BC between Pharnaces of Pontus, son of King Mithridates, and Gnaeus Domitius Calvinus, the Legate appointed by Caesar to command Roman forces in Asia. With beautifully painted 28m figures on the table (Pontic pike phalanxes 72 strong!) the game was certainly impressive visually too.
Quite a few Essex Warriors took part and a good time was had by all, even those of us who were losing, as you can tell by the smiling face of our President!
