On tap this weekend was our usual Lord of the Rings themed Dragon Rampant game. I brought 100 points of elves to face his legions of evil doom. A good 40+ of those points hadn't been played with yet.
We used a book of scenarios from One Hour War Games and divided our armies into 3 roughly equal commands. My elf sorceress was holding a ridge while the king marched to her aid. It didn't go well because you can buy a lot of goblins for 100 points....
|Elf advance guard on ridge|
|Troll and Warg riders|
|The king arrives with reinforcements|
|Elf archers who had trouble activating|
|More elf archers that had trouble activating|
|My ent killed Mike's troll and then shredded his elite goblin archers|
|Elf light infantry perform badly|
|Remains of archers|
|My left wing gets thinner. Charges to try and blunt the orc columns weren't effective|
|When you find yourself outnumbered 20:1 and keep getting snared in sorcery|
Then after some corned beef sandwiches and a beer we set up a game of Longstreet with Mike's 28mm ACW collection.
|Brigade of Union cavalry is defending along the road. Rebs come in from right trying to capture the ford. Union reinforcements enter from far end of table.|
|I also got to take Mike's groovy new artillery limber for a spin|
|This regiment did a good job holding the fence against a Reb brigade attacking through the wheat|
|My dice on left Mike's on the right when he tried to charge me!|
|While we made dinner and shoveled 6" of snow Luigi inspected our dispositions|
|Pressure in the center. Mike rolled better on this charge and swept one regiment away!|
|I've pulled back on the right and lost a gun. But reinforcements arriving on the left|
|Game end. River crossing solidly in my hands and I chase the Rebs back over the hill.|
