Super Gaming Week: Game 3.

The long waited

"Finnish War 1808-09" (Suomen Sota) 


It was in last September, when this fire was really ignited. I had been slowly collecting some minis for the Russo-Swedish War 1808-09 (where Finland was torn away from being part of Sweden and annexed to the Russian Tzardom), but visiting The Little Wars Club in Stockholm really kicked this project on. They introduced us to  the Pikeman's Lament rules system based on the successful Lion Rampant -system. Miniature painting (and buying more) started after the trip and then we just had to wait for the Pikeman's Lament ruleset to be published...

Now were finally all set and played the first battle as presented in the excellent gaming resource by Sword and Sabre -publishing : 16.4.1808 Battle of Yppäri (Pyhäjoki).

Super Gaming Week: Game 1. LOTR

Good shall prevail!

(Isengard with Dunlending focus) as the evil side and my elves and Adrian's (guest player from Turku, whom we new from LOTR Finland fb-group) stout dwarven force led by Gimli and Legolas (whom this time won their body count easily!).

GNW: Battle of Holowcyn

King Charles leads the Charge!

Last Sunday we finally fought the battle of Holowcyn. Scenario was straight out of the BP supplement "Last Argument of the Kings" . We splitted the OOB to 50% to make our collections cut it. Several units were actually left out of the game, so we're not far from playing it with full OOB.

Bolt Action Day @ Nopat Club

HQ-Raid in the Far East

We had an "Open House" for Bolt Action today at our Club. This meant we had set up BA games on good looking gaming tables and people could come and play, even without own minis or previous experience. We had a full house (including few 9th Age -players in the midst) with couple of new players wanting to try it out. I was hosting a scenario from the Empires in Flames -book: HQ Raid, where British troops were attacking a village with a local Japanese HQ. All Japs & Gurghas painted by me, Chindits painted by Mikko. I was playing with my friend Ludde and his pals quite new to the game. They preferred not be presented in the blog, hence the "masking" of faces.
