Get Yer Zimmerframe off of my Longship!

Postby madaxeman » Mon Nov 11, 2013 8:48 pm

It's a first for the Madaxeman.com website as the rather wonderful game of SAGA takes full advantage of it's free bus pass to arrive bang on time for a 4-game, one day first outing to the seaside in 4 consecutive Viking-laden Battle Reports.

Marvel as the tactical inadequacies seen previously in Madaxeman.com battle reports from eras as diverse as Ancient Egypt to the Pacific theatre of WW2 are replicated in painful detail in the Viking Age, and then relax by smearing yourself in Viking Hannibals Goose-fat of Criticism..

Reviews of these reports
"these are genius" (Gripping Beast's Mike Hobbs on Twitter)
"Great stuff. I got my laughs for the day!" (WWPD)
"Does go to show how seldom you see the phrase 'engorged testicles' in a battle report critique." (TMP)

Nice figures....fuuking awful table.....green felt....this isnt the 1970's......spend some time on your table rather than your game report. :argue:

Didn't get as far as clicking on the blog link....but I bet there are more photos of green felt.....

Even McFonz makes a real effort with his terrain, and his posts are like War & Peace.....

Not my table....

That's one of the biggest problems with occasionally leaving your own bedroom and playing against new people at competitions held in pubs that serve beer and curry I'm afraid... :froth:

Now that's proper wargaming. Curry, beer and dice to throw at people.

Hmmm - just remembered, some of the figures in the 2nd battle report actually shared your sentiments, and had made the same point already !
