Last Saturday's Hereford Big Game (autumn) saw Sir Gilbert Hill, supported by an Anglican force, launch an assault across the Wye against assorted "Government" and BUF forces.

The assault boats begin to cross; pontoon bridges are under construction and the enemy have set fire to the river….!

The Anglican tank brigade begins to cross whilst the Ewyas Harold and Pontrilas Women's Institute boat crosses in support. They proudly carry their POUM flag given to them by the darkly dashing foreign gentlemen from the mortar section although they still have no idea what POUM is

What a fun looking game! I hope it was as much fun to play as it was to read.

It was great fun.

Unfortunately the ju-ju of the witch attached to the warriors of Chief Kansan O'Flynn (leader of the Colonial Volunteer section) was not strong. She managed (after several attempts) to cast Wave Skim on the Chief's section enabling them to cross the river by swimming at remarkable speed. And in the final hour of the day, she summoned a swarm of bees which caused minor irritation to an enemy section. Otherwise, her power was unimpressive.
