War of the Ring at the Devon Wargames Group
I was having much fun yesterday, letting down my historic wargaming credentials with an indulgence of Lord of the Rings fantasy gaming recreating the drama of the Battle of Pelennor Fields from Tolkien's great book.
As you will see the game was complimented with great scenery and great painting from Mel one of our game hosts, alongside Lee and Jamie, and she also helped in managing the many cats or fellow club members, as we got to grips with playing War of the Ring, the GW Mass Battle rules from yore.
I am a big fan of the Middle Earth series of books by Tolkien and am at present two thirds through a second reading of Lord of the Rings as well as enjoying the uncut versions of the Peter Jackson films. In addition I am looking forward to visiting many of the sites presented in the film later this year, so a lot of boxes got ticked yesterday along with a very enjoyable game.
If you would like to see more of our game then just follow the link to the club blog
and you can also see more of Lee's adventures in the hobby and no doubt more stuff about their figure collections on his blog
Next up I have a book review and hopefully a report on a very interesting trip planned, Chinese Bat Flu allowing, not to mention more adventures at sea with the All at Sea collection of ships.
