Last weekend the weeks of frenetic figure painting, terrain building, and play testing came to a head with the annual Nunawading Wargames Association's Open Day. Again it didn't disappoint with many displays of a very high standard that would not be out of place in the more famous overseas events.
My fellow NWA'er Michael Stringer and myself ran a successful display game on the Battle of Arnhem (see previous post) but the following photos and write up cover the range of games on offer during the day. World War II featured heavily in the proceedings including two games on the Battle of the Bulge (historical and movie versions!).
First up Warhammer 40K. We now have a group of players that play this game regularly at club meetings and they put on a great looking table with some excellent ruined cathedral terrain previously built by club member Brendan Day.
Continuing the science fiction theme we next up have Judge Dredd, a great game with some nice mechanics. I already am working on stuff for this game which I will post in the coming days.
"I am the Law!!"
James Wright explaining how the game works.
Still technically science fiction we had Weird World War II with Secrets of the Third Reich but the mechs and weird stuff was toned down for this intro game. The mechanics themselves are good for just historical games too.
