Hi all,
Some of the chaps played out a nice little Fire & Fury scenario at the club meeting this month, playing the scenario twice with two quite different games as the outcome.

If you would like to see how they played and more, then just follow the link to the DWG Blog.

Great looking game!

That mat is a vivid green and the roads and the figure basses match well. What are you using there? I like the looks of it.

A little more vivid in the photographs than in real life .
The cloth is one of the Citadel battle mats which if anyone had any sense should be back on the market . The roads are from Terra Firma , now also unfortunately unavailable, again these are so good as they are both reasonable realistic and cling to the cloth that they cry out for being picked up by a new company.

The bases are just dipped into a flock container (Javis Scatter ).

Nice compact battle ……. Ideal for my table.

I had my doubts with it being only a 4x4 table but it worked very well, my other choice from the scenarios was Seven Pines which has a 53 base v 71 I believe. Now that would be interesting on such a small area.
My bases were also a little bigger than the rules recommended.
