After freezing our nads off at the Ascot racecourse last year, the 2022 edition of Warfare turned up the heating significantly with a trip to the desert in a Biblical-themed competition at the all-new Farnborough venue.

That meant the Linear B tactics of an improved and enhanced Mycenean army got to have a run out in five games of L'Art de la Guerre, all laced with dreadful poetry, terribly inappropriate speech-bubble captions, almost no tactics and even a smattering of your best quality American Ska-Punk in a series of reports punningly now known as Homer's The Silly-iad.

There was a young man called Achilles,
Anyone that he fought got the willies,
He had a big horse,
(It was wooden, of course!),
And a penchant for terrible ditties!
(Homer, The Silly-iad)


Read on to experience the full poetic horror of these 5 match reports!

There once was a King named Odysseus,
who joined in a venture amphibious.
'Twas said that there never
was a King quite as clever,
but he sadly was also perfidious.

Excellent work by Axeman and Exeter!

Salute to the poetry fellas.
Very entertaining reports as usual.
Made even better, I think, by all that Biblical goodness!
