A quiet night at the club:
(a) DBMM - Later Muslim Indian v Seljuk Turks
(b) Black Powder - AWI - Brits v Americans
(Note: this is the picture that I couldn't add last week - dwarves v lizardmen)
(c) HotT - Skeletons v Rats
I scratched together an army based on the club's rats (plus a few samurai) - 4 x hordes, 3 x beasts, 1 x hero general, 1 x magician, 1 x blades plus 1 x behemoth.
Jim had a skeleton army of 1 x behemoth, 2 x lurkers, 1 x seekers, 3 x shooters, 5 x horde and 1 x magician.
For once the dice favoured me and starved Jim of movement points. A 12 - 2 victory for the rats after nearly 90 minutes of play. What a a marathon!

Finished the Terry Pratchett book - "A Hatful of Sky". I love the logic of his arguements - "It's not what a witch is, it's what she appears to be." Thinking back to the "Hustle" series - they could walk into anywhere if they had enough hutzpah.

Read all that I wanted to from "Slingshot" 313. In the 42 pages of text were only 3 articles that interested me:
"Wagaming with Vandals" - shows that the one DBM(M) list is inadequate
"The Battle of the 5 Lamas" - outside the Ancient period but worth a read
"Mythological Wargaming" - a twist on classical warfare
Still unimpressed by Slingshot and unlikely to re-subscribe.
Footnote: preparing for a game of "Quetcoatl Rampant" against Chris on Saturday. Previously I have only played solo (and put the result on this blog). I now have the chance to find out what I did wrong.
