The urge to push lead .


Having unpacked and sorted out post-holiday I got the urge to get some figures on the tabletop and play a game . I went for my 'go too' set of rules - A Gentleman's War and got out a couple of my 40mm Imagination armies that have not seen the light of day for a while . So the Armies of Treboria and Ferraro Rocher take the field . I diced for the location of units using Donald Featherstone's method (1 left flank,, 2 left center 3 center, 4 right center, 5 right flank, 6 player chooses)

I drew 2 resource cards, the Treborian General had his mistress inflicted on him by the enemy (she distracts him) 

The Treborians drew 'Regimental Mascot' , 'Biffa the mascot of the British Legione (improves morale).

The Army of Ferraro Rocher is being lead by King Paul II himself and he has brought to the field a newly formed unit of 'Soldatii de Furtuna ' - crack assault troops armed with the newly developed 'Grenade ale mortii' . Both sides have 4 line units , 2 reservists units, 1 Artillery piece , 1 Cavalry unit and 1 'special' infantry unit . I will be reporting back as the action grows hot ! 


  1. A brave looking start. Do the semiflats count as a 'difficult target' when fired at from dead aheaad?

  2. Looking forward to further developments!

  3. A marvelous beginning Tony! I'm looking forward to your next post!

  4. That looks like my sort of game!

  5. 'A Gentleman's War' is one of my favorite sets of rules.
