My WAB Armies

Choson Korean - for Imjin War.
Campanian army with Pyrrhic allies.
Late-Samurai with all options.
Seleucid led by Antiochus the Great.
Late-HYW French - led by Joan of Arc.
Mycenaean - My first WAB army. Next time this army is used, it will employ more archers - not just the guys in the spear formation.
Norman. A small detachment of shortbow archers has been added, and should help missle fire on the move.Early Samurai. This army is suitable for individual skirmish type of games - maybe something out of Siege and Conquest.Macedonian/Successor. This is a core army that can swap out/add various options - anything from Imperial Macedonian to late-Successors. Early-Holy Roman Empire Clerical army led by the Archbishop of Cologne.

The Re-Taking of Tilltam

Here's a quick battle report w/captioned photos from a game which is part of a larger, running scenario hosted & GM'd by Wes R. Today's game (12/6/08) was fought between the forces of Marchester & Murchia - fictional entities among several others in their third year of hard campaigning. My Murchians had captured Tilltam from the Marchestrians in the previous campaign year. The Marchester forces decided to retake the village. The first relief force arrived from Sudley & a second force arrived from Marchester itself at turn 4. All the figures & scenery from today's game are from Wes' extensive collection. The game ended when Adrian's Marchestrian foot Milites defeated the Murchian Comes & his mounted Milites in combat - who fled off the table. As it is said, "He who fights & runs away, lives to fight another day!"
