Overview of the game

Rampage 2011 Swiss vs Germans

Last game of the comp, the dreaded Swiss.

Nuff said. :-)

I did manage to get his camp and crossbow skirmishers. The Swiss captured my artillery and then proceeded to fire them more effective than me. :-(

Rampage game 2 Ming vs Germans

So, my first big lose. Playing against the Ming, I discovered the power of battle groups of 8 with bow an a regimental gun. 9 dice shooting in effective range. Ow ow ow

I just got shredded by shooting.

At least I managed to catch his horse from the rear when they tried to evade.

Rampage game 1 Danish vs Germans

First game of the comp and I got a loosing draw.

My determined horse failed to do their part and broke, leaving my flank all open.

Rampage practice game

Had my first and only practice game for rampage 2011. My opponent brought is Swiss vs my 30 years war later Germans.

Damn, elite armoured pike are scarey!

He only had 8 battle groups for 800 points, but 5 of them were elite Keil blocks.

Force on Force

Just picked up e new version of For e on Force and the first supplemnent, Road to Bagdad.

From ute little I've flicked thru so far, it looks very nice. I see the publishing arrangement with Osprey has worked like how it did with Field of Glory. Nicely laid out, lots of colour and pictures.

More to come,
