A period of neglect.

Yes. A period of neglect. A long holiday and playing too many games…can there be too many? All this meant I haven’t had much time to update this website, which is a pity as the club is thriving with plenty of gamers and lots of different games played from all periods and ranges. Come along and join in on our regular Thursday night sessions at the Heart Centre.



Flames of War-Late Italian against the US First Armoured

A game of Flames of War; Battlefront’s popular game system. There are several  players of this at the club and some are getting going again. We have got Late, Mid’ and Early versions of Brits,Soviet, German, US and Blitzkrieg French and German. In this battle the Italians have some good tanks and were confident veteran against a confidant trained US tank army deploying 12 Grants and a support units. Steve Nolan playing Italian got off to a good start by bagging two Grants and rushing an objective on the other side of the board. A reinforcement of another platoon of Grants, a tenacious resistance by the US artillery and recon combined with a long run of poor dice roles for the Italians secured a US victory-just.

Ralph is selling his Flames-of-War German Army

Ideally I’m wanting to sell them off as one lot. Wanting £300 for them, but willing to take offers.

Cheers Ralph. See Ralph on http://www.leeds-nightowls.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=4996.0

Well, seen as how I haven’t seen it played in time, and I don’t think I’ll ever get round to playing it again, I’m selling off my Flames of War Army.

They were originally modelled as fallschirmjaeger but could of course be used as any Germans!

Flames of War- Blitzkrieg-1940 French v German-The Early War

Flames of War- Blitzkrieg-1940 French v German-The Early War. Steve and Trevor took their early war armies to the table using the new edition rules and the early war blitzkrieg manual. The French used an Escadrille de Combat which started slowly because Stukas kept bombing the French tanks but after a long drawn out attrition battle the French got on the German objective.
