there is a Might and Reason 28mm SWY game next Sunday 2nd (Austerlitz day) by heroic me and that eternal scoundrel Lord Rhino of Hearne. To be held in the Goulburn GVS John St annexe.


Lt General the most honourable Lord Hearne of Sloane , late of his Majesty's Royal Irish Regt will command a force of 170 pts of his Britannic Majesties Army of Middle Goulburn in an attempt to contain the wily Reynard-Christoph, Count of RuedeJean .The count ,with a force of 220 points of doughty French, Germans, Swiss and Irish troops is defending the rights and interests of his most Catholic Majesty. 9.AM start

Nicely presented. Wish I could attend, looks to be fun. AAR with photos, please, for vicarious entertainment. 50 point spread, what is the equalizer?

superior generalship on behalf of Lord Hearne of Sloane !!!!

Then I would target Lord Hearne with my artillery to neutralize the advantage : )

I would apply an overdose of claret for the same or greater effect

(note for claret it is possible to substitute other drinks of the more potent types for same effect)

And where do you get the lovely flowers to put on the bases…

Godspeed gentlemen, and keep your powder dry and your sword arms straight….

well yes many thanks for the ecouragment , it will be a bloody day not quite as bloody if I was facing von Hearne of Sloanezburg and a force of blue clad devils but these lobsters , with their 2 extra firing dice will be altogether nasty enough to troops rated as French. unfortunately drinking alchohol is off the menu for some time for me.

yes the 50 point difference reflects the grade of the commander, Rhino is a good and I am an average. It also takes into account the relative nastiness of the two sides.His is a bit ( a lot) nastier than mine.

Paint Pig Inactive Member28 Nov 2012 9:53 a.m. PST

Couldn't help having a look huh? wink

God speed indeed gentlemen and may the best Horn'd beast carry the day thumbs up
