A Game Day

I’m getting behind on posts—I have a Gencon AAR pending, and today Chris Palmer visited for a day of games.  I shall hope to post a full report eventually, but we played two games of Howard Whitehouse’s A Gentleman’s War with our 40mm Not Quite Seven Years War figures.

As we see it, Chris’s North Polenburg had attempted to take the initiative at the beginning of a campaign season, perhaps as a response to a recent attack by the Wachovians.  We randomized armies in accordance with the rules, and played out two scenarios which were separate attacks by North Polenburg.  Both attacks were eventually fended off by the forces of Schoeffen-Buschhagen, my imagi-nation.

In the first battle, S-B relief force arrives to save the isolated detachment by the farmhouse.
In the second battle, S-B forces defend the woods on their left


  1. AGW works very well with O.S. SYW figures I find .

    1. We’re certainly finding that to be true; all of the games have been fun so far...

  2. I had a great time, Rob! Thanks for hosting.

    I'm busily preparing my defenses along the border as I await the inevitable S-B counterattack! :)
