I was very excited to get an invitation to my first wargame for nearly a year. Ken Reelly of Yarkshire Gamer blog fame invited me over this Sunday to Castle Riley, as a bonus we would be playing with his Spanish Civil War, a really fun and colourful period I had long wanted to game with Ken and the rest of the guys.
There were only4 of us for this game, Rob and Steve would be the Liberales whilst Ken and I would be the Nationalists. Rules, as usual with the Yarkshire gaming crew, were loosley based on a set with lots of changes to suit what they wanted, in this case the base rules that have been re-designed are Iron Ivan.
You can see more here with Kens blog http://yarkshiregamer.blogspot.com/ and no doubt he will have a much better game report than mine on there in due course.
The table is 12 feet long by 6 wide (give or take) and today had a river through the middle seperating the table into two halves, with a ford at both sides of the table taking the dirt tracks across.
Kens latest painted unit, the Nationalist cavalry, were already on table ready to go. Lovely figures, ideally I needed to leave them on their pretty horses as long as possible for visual effect.
