I went to sheffield wargames Societys new venue last time at woodseats working mens club and I must say it is very impressive ,I was also lucky enough to be asked to join in John Armatys Sci Fi fun game .As usual very simple but effective rules and most importantly a great deal of fun .
|The Rules and our objectives and army lists|
|our objective was to defend the town|
|The enemy deploys|
|Towards the end of the game I made an heroic charge|
|The result -1 dead 2 stunned and 1 chap very worried|

Our first port of call was the town of Battle ,Battle Abbey and Senlac Hill .
|Looking up Senlac Hill from the Brittany units positions|
|The battle filed has many information Boards|
|Another view up the hill from thee Norman Lines|
|The Abbey Stands on the crest of the hill ,which was higher and steeper at the time|
|A better idea of the steepness from this angle|
|There were no trees and terracing at the time of the battle|
|Most of the original Abbey is in Ruins|
|Looking down Senlac hill from Harolds position|

With not getting to Sheffield Wargames Society this week we had a game of Zvesda Art of Tactics ,a very good game John picked up cheap the game is palyed with cards with the unit stas on one side and your order sheet on the other .The models move by hexes and everything is done with D6's .The game comes in different sets Battle for Moscow , Battle for the Danube etc and contains all the models ,play mats ,dice even the dry marker pens needed to play the game .Really enjoyed it and look forward to playing a more in depth game we played with just 3 tanks per side .

Had a great game of 7tv 2nd edition last night using the free star wars supplement . The scenario was basically the escape one from the rule book with the added story of teh AT AT had been disabled and certain items (objective tokens) needed scavening from the wreckage ,It was really good fun with the countdown cards and gadgets adding loads of moans and groans along the way ,The dark side won basically I was going to do a more in depth report but got so involved didnt jot down all the info and forgot to take turn by turn pics .Figures are hero clix ,mat by Urbanmatz ,rules 7tv .
