Hi All!

A mate hosted a Siege at Glenrowan scenario for us last week. The figures were 28mm, his terrain was gorgeous and the rules used were Tribal/Brutal. Not sure who 'won' the game but we all had a hoot playing it!

The Kelly Gang in armour despite being virtually immobile were almost impervious to the small arms fire of the Police, at the games end only one had been taken out (Joe Byrne) but the other three were all 'severely' wounded.

Our Police force instead of standing back and blasting the Kelly Gang 'got stuck in' and so a bloodbath ensued! A rough count of casualties came up as 18 Police/Trackers/Volunteers, one Kelly Gang member and seven Hostages being killed/disabled. The three remaining Gang members were wounded as were Sergeant Steele and Senior Constable Kelly.

In the end the Police had occupied the Glenrowan Hotel and apprehended Dan Kelly and Steve Hart while the wounded Ned Kelly fled finding (temporary I suspect) refuge in the bush...

Looks great and sounds like a lot of fun! smile.gif

"...and his streamlined Tribal/Brutal rules gave us a good overview of them."

Not using the full Tribal/ Brutal rules then? Simplified as it is designed as a convention game?

Hey DA!

Thanks! We had a great time.

And yes the game was played with simplified rules at Little Wars and we used them again. If we Have another go we’d go with the full rules. Also there were specific scenario rules for the Kelly’s armour and the hostages.

Cheers!
