Recent games...

 So I've been able to squeeze in a couple of great games in the last couple of weeks at Eric the Shed's

Lancastrian pikes advance over the hedges

Men at Arms clash

Last week saw the penultimate Wars of the Roses battle at Eric the Shed's ... Tewkesbury.  As usual there is a great write up on Eric's blog.  It was a really close game which went down to the wire.  Bosworth next!

And then this week we moved to the Sudan and the battle of El Teb.  Again, a close run game with both sides pretty much exhausting themselves (although to be fair the Brits were broken first so it was a Sudanese victory...questions will be asked in Parliament and there may be some terrible Victorian poetry written to commemorate the defeat...)

The British columns advance

But Sudanese skirmishers lie in wait

Both sides clash at the dry riverbed

The machine guns advance (but are both jammed...again!)

The Sudanese hold the high ground

In other shock news I have actually picked up a paint brush and done some painting for for first time in months.  When I looked out my brushes to make a start on my Late Romans they looked like a 2 year old had been mashing them on the table and they were in terrible state so it was off to the excellent Gamers Guild in Redhill to restock on brushes and some paints.  A great little shop which is a bit of a rarity these days
