Suvorov v Napoleon 1799 - (10/10/12)
Suvorov launches his army into Italy, but this time Napoleon is present. Using the full and outstanding 28mm Eureka French Revolution line of figures (and a few Trent and Mirliton figures which totals over 1000 figures), and played on a 6x18ft table, this battle will mirror the largest historical engagement in Italy in 1799. The primary difference will be the presence of Napoleon. Suvorov did not lose in Italy, some say because Napoleon was absent. This is an opportunity to play the What-If. Rules: Carnage & Glory II. The mission was for the settlers to resupply the British fort. The Fort was supplied. GM was Jim Dunnam.

Over The Top - Through the Blood and the Mud (11/27/10) photo album
The LSHM Waco Chapter finally had a chance to actually play their 2011 LSHM Millenniumcon Cup Challenge winner. Jim Dunnam ran the game with Mike and Richard playing the Huns with Lee and Smythe Hardaway the Brits. The game got over to a swift start with the right flank of the Huns under platoon commander Mike storming into the Brit's left flank under Lee. After a brief battle the Huns managed the take the trenches on their frontage. The action on the other flank was not as dramatic. With the usual Richard and Lance die rolling, both sides managed to basically stay in the mud with very little blood for the entire game.

We did this building journal just for grins but I decided to post it here for the rest to see. It was kind of an inside joke but it demonstrates how one builds scenery brick by brick by brick.
