1581 and Oda Nobunaga is systematically destroying the strongholds, villages and farms of the Iga region in an attempt to wipe out the Iga-Ryu faction. 50,000 troops descend upon the hopelessly outnumbered defenders of Iga – burning, pillaging and destroying. A small quiet village on a river becomes the scene of conflict – as just a few of the local Daimyo’s trusted samurai swear to protect the villagers and the daughter of the local Daimyo. The forces of Nobunaga hold numerical superiority over the local defenders. Yet they do not count on the skill and training of the samurai – or the silent,deadly killers watching them from the shadows of the village…

Sunday, October 3 1993. 140 US Rangers and Delta operatives roped down from Black Hawk helicopters into the centre of Mogadishu to abduct two high ranking members of a Somali warlord’s organisation, and then return to base. What followed was a brutal lesson in modern combat as the entire city rose against them. Pinned down against overwhelming odds, the Americans fought through the night in a battle that became known as “The Day of the Rangers.”

The Persians have made another attempt to conquer Greece and are devastating the countryside. The Greek coalition army has been outmanoeuvred and the Persians see their chance to attack and destroy the Greeks while their army is confused under conflicting march orders.

This game will use historical deployment of units rather than the normal Field of Glory set up rules.

One hundred and seventy-five years into the future Humanity has managed to survive despite itself, but for how much longer?

The old nations have grouped themselves into great international federations and have allotted between themselves the star systems that have been shown to be adequate for human life. Confrontation and conflict are the constant norm, whether they be open or concealed, of high or low-intensity, of long or short duration… the profession of soldier in this époque is far from dull…

thanks Hongihika for promoting this, I can vouch that the background organisation will ensure that this show is a success. It follows on the heels of the historycon-bugle call-festival of history shows with Alan taking steps to ensure it gets a longlife.

The venue is ideal (close to public transport and shops), the list of games impressive and club support has been awesome. Traders and commercial support has also been great, with Eureka and many others taking the opportunity to promote the event.

If any out of staters (or country visitors) want some floor space I'm offering up my house, a short 5 minute tram ride from the venue.

get onboard, write the date down and pass the word around.

anyone on wau coming along ? show of hands would be good and get the impetus growing.

Unfortunately, the Fall of the Ringmaker won't be running this year, which is a shame.

But the good news is that we have a late addition of Achtung! Cthulhu taking its place.

There's a fair few of us coming from Victoria to put on some games. I'll be driving over with my family the Sunday before. On the Saturday of Little Wars, I'll be partnered up with my mate Lon, playing Samurai SAGA. Tristan will be teaching players how to play Infinity - like a champ. Adam will be running an excellent game of Axles and Alloys. (Tristan and Adam are both ex-Adelaide boys)

I'm staying down at the Fleurieu peninsula for the first half of the week, and then we stay at Forestville - near the military barracks. Will probably go and watch the Adelaide/Hawthorn match on Friday night, and then come and play games all day at Little Wars... and then it's a long drive home on Sunday, as it's the last day of school-holidays in Victoria. sad.gif

I'm really keen to see what the gaming situation is like in South Australia, so hope to see you all there!

1915 and Britain was in trouble. Kaiser Wilhelm had put two war ships onto Lake Tanganyika, taking control. It was vital for them to be destroyed.

But who could be trusted with such a mission?

Step forward Lt Commander Geoffrey Spicer-Simpson. Court-martialled for wrecking his own ships, an inveterate liar, and a wearer of skirts. Since no-one else was available, Spicer-Simpson was dispatched with a crack team – half of whom were equally unhinged – on a dangerous mission to drag two wooden gunboats 4000 miles through the African jungle, then engage an enemy with a few surprises still up his sleeve…”

If the savage fury, speed and adrenaline rush of coastal warfare is your thing then this game is probably not for you.

If however you find underpowered naval craft funny, commanders being worshipped as gods amusing, or have ever thought that taking on a 1200 ton armoured monster with a forty foot wooden launch was a good idea – then this could be your lucky day.

Period: WW1 Naval
Ruleset: The Quick and The Dead
Figure scale: 1:600
Game type: Short Participation Game
Table Size: 6 x 4
Participants: 2 – 4
Game length: about 30 – 60 minutes or until one side can’t stop laughing

ha ha, I'm sold on the quick and the dead. I'll get some monogrammed cigarettes immediately.

The other game grabbing my attention is the "Defence of Radelaide". Not sure why the frenchies would be attacking us, but any excuse to see the Forts fire some shots in anger. I can't imagine Adelaide being defensible !

I hope the Samurai SAGA encourages someone to buy the Clan War / Legend of the Five Rings army box I will have for sale in the Bring and Buy stall. armata_PDT_01.gif
