I was lucky enough to take part in a couple of excellent games at Eric the Shed's. The first was a very bloody and fun Predator game which involved a lot of running around the jungle being eaten by animals, plants, and occasionally a Predator...one of those games where anyone actually surviving and getting off the board intact is a bonus: great fun!
The second game was probably the most spectacular that I've seen at Eric's and certainly was the kind of game that would rival anything you'll see at a show. The full write-up can be found here on the Shed Wars website but I've added a couple of photos below. The game was an ECW siege with the plucky Royalists defending the walls against a desperate assault by the Parliamentarians. Have a look at the full report on Eric's blog...really inspiring and a brilliant game despite the walls eventually falling and the defenders being put to the sword.
I've been working on my 54mm North West Frontier figures and have made quite a bit of headway...I've now pretty much completed around 48 foot figures and an artillery piece for the Brits. Now to get to work on the cavalry before I attempt tartan in 54mm!

|Just need to get to work on the riders now|
I've also been giving some thought to rules. Sharp Practice is a definite possibility but I need to get some more figures painted for this. It would be good to look at something on a more 1:1 level. Possible contenders include GASLIGHT, the old WRG Fire and Steel rules and possibly adapting Donnybrook. Definitely more thought required but if anyone has any good suggestions I'd be grateful
