LITTLE WARS '12

 Hi All
Well, LITTLE WARS (Melbourne's 'Wargame Day Of Fun') has come and gone for another year.
It was, as usual, a great day out. I manage to sell some stuff at the 'Bring and Buy' so actually walked away with my wallet slightly thicker than when I walked in, (for a change).
There were as swag of excellent games on display.
The Best one was, (in my opinion) the BLACK POWDER 'Borodino' Demo game. Beauitiful 28mm miniatures on excellent terrain.  See a swag of photos below:

 BELOW: BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM,...... boom boom boom? OLD GUARD Artillery in action.






 BELOW: Ancients being played using Board game rules. An adaption from the COMMAND & COLORS (colours?) board game
 BELOW: FIELD OF GLORY: NAPOLEONIC. 15mm Napoleonics played on 'Teddy Bear' fur.
The battle was Waterloo. Apparently no Teddy Bears were harmed,...
 A great looking game, though the unit 'Tags' detracted from it I think.


 BELOW: FORCE ON FORCE! 28mm Modern combat in Afghanistan,.... when I last had a look the Coalition forces had sustained some heavy casualties. Sure to look bad in the papers and put Mr and Mrs 'citizen' off their breakfast. 'sigh'.
 BELOW: A rather spiffy game of English Civil War action using Black Powder PIKE & SHOTTE rules I believe.

 ABOVE: ZULUS!!! FAAAAASSSSSSSANDS OF 'EM.
BELOW: I entered my Peninsular War British Light Dragoons in the Painting comp and they collected a Silver Medal!!
All in all a cracking good day of Wargame Goodness!!!!
