The many faces of Wargaming or doing as you're told!

On Sunday Posties Rejects met up for a game of 15mm ancients and as you've possibly heard here and here it was a bit of a disaster for BigLee and Ray, the game was finely set up by Postie with hidden units and possible Favour of the Gods markers all over the place but where the problem started was with one side's man in charge sticking to a plan (in his eyes a good plan) that other's possibly didn't think so!

Now you know me a little and I'm not one to focus on the misery of others (well Ray can be an exception) but I felt sorry for the boys and did a little pictorial tribute to the many faces of wargaming...our hobby.

Will post some of my pictures of my game tomorrow for eye candy purposes, sorry about yesterday but the SWMBO was in her birthday mode so I took the day off and hid.

This is going to be a good day and a good game my friend....

What????????????????

F************************k

You need to stop taking pictures Fran or I'm going to arse invade you with that camera!

A moment of despondency....

The brave face.........

I'm not playing anymore........

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ........

I'm going to kill him..........



I had a great time though and won!

  2. It was a sad sad day for the Hittites. And pretty crap for me and Ray as well. I'm blanking it from my memory.

    Actually we ought to feel sorry for Surj...cos he's gonna be ribbed about this for all eternity.

  3. Damn this looks fun, I never tried any tabletop games before, so I seriously feel I'm missing out.

  4. Glad you won, and I quite like the Orc t-shirt. Or at least I think it's supposed to be an Orc. They look surprisingly happy for people full of rage and despair.

  22. Sorry I'm getting to you late big guy, but I've been down with a bugger of a cold and just woke up. I must say Ray had this coming as he was talking smack about you on his blog before the game started. Said you had a big hairy ginger arse, he did. But don't tell him I was the one that narked on him. Thanks for putting up these pics, it makes it seem almost like I was there.

  23. And if Ray ever gets his hands on me, I'll be glad I wasn't.

  32. "Sir. I said to General Ewell these words. I said to him: "Sir, give me one division and I will take that hill." He said nothing. He just stood there and stared at me. I said, "General Ewell, give me one brigade and I will take that hill." I was becoming disturbed, sir. And General Ewell put his arms behind him and blinked. So I said, "General, give me one regiment and I will take that hill." And he said nothing. He just stood there. I threw down my sword. Down on the ground in front of him. We could have done it, sir."
