About Me

A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

Quick AAR

Tonight's FoG game didn't go (quite) as badly as it could have - I didn't suffer an army rout, I did do some destroy 1 of Dave's units (Roman Legionaries!!!!) and did pick up some very useful hints.

I'll do a more detailed AAR tomorrow (if I can remember exactly what occurred), but here are two teaser pics - deployments at the start and dispositions at the end.

To some extent the movement trays I knocked up last night were helpful, but they were also a pain in the proverbial at times. I'll probably keep them for the lancers and maybe the light horse.


  1. With a draft part of the deployment. Wargaming at a pub, the essence of civilization; I'm jealous.

  2. I've always found that if the winner buys me a beer, that helps soothe the sting of defeat. And I do like the movement sticks! Very cool.

  3. Interesting idea for movement trays..
    Also great idea to play in a pub! Wish I had that opportunity!

  4. Shame the destruction of the morally bankrupt didn't occur as planned :(

    Still, looking forward to reading what did happen

  5. So is that a nice way of saying you lost!

  6. @GJD - thanks!

    @Lentulus and Mr Lee - the fact that CLWC meets in a pub had nothing to do with my choice of them as my club - honest guv'nor! ;)

    @Monty - if only my opponent had made that offer..... Nah, he gave me some very handy tips so I'll let him off

    @cmnash - I only planned to not lose too badly against them, so Ibsuppose I can at least say that I achieved my objectives!

    @Fran - errmmm, yes

    @Ray - yup. Definitely the beer and not my crappy dice. Crappy generalship was less of an issue last night than in previous games.
