I'm stealing this idea over from Dakka, where there's two threads on what the community is painting or playing.

So feel free to post pictures of any games you've play recently!

I'll start us off!

I met up with Josh this past weekend, who's a member of one of Nerdvana's wargaming facebook group. I saw him expressing interest in playing Warlords of Erehwon, and I told him a few members of the club had gotten into it. He's looking for something other than Age of Sigmar to play his old Fantasy stuff with. 

So we both wrote up 1000 point lists (my Orcs & Goblins vs. his Dwarfs), and we played the "Upon the Fields of Battle" scenario.

Josh was a little nervous as the Orcs had a distinct numbers advantage.

Then we got into combat, and I learned just how nasty Dwarfs in Heavy army (Res 9!) can be if you're not prepared for it. It also didn't help that a few of my unit basically exploded when they lost combat and accrued more pins than their command value, which instantly destroys any unit.

By the end of the game, I only had my Chariot, Bolt Thrower, and Goblin Shaman left (3/9 of my command dice) while I had only caused a single Dwarf Warrior unit to rout off the table.

When you go to post something, there's an icon down by the "post" button that looks like a camera. Click on that, and you have the option of either selecting files from your drives, or copying an image from a link url.

Can I do this with my cell phone camera?

I can do it from mine! Same steps, and just pick "files" (if an Android phone like mine, dunno about Apple stuff).

I played a game of Muskets & Tomahawks over the weekend while I was up in PA.

We had a good time, with settlers defending against a horde of Natives. The British Regulars arrived too late to help, and all the settlement's buildings were burned.

TWO QUICK QUESTIONS: 
1.  What's a "Dakka" - I'm assuming it's a War Gaming Group similar to our SJGA / SJCW ?
2nd.  What the scale or miniature size of the "Muskets and Tomahawks" game pictured above?  I bought into the Firelock's "Blood & Plunder" pirates with the hope and intention that they could also be used in F&I and AWI scenarios.  Do yoyu think they are compatible?

Thanks Ted.  I'll wave as I pass by Springfield on my way to Lebanon, PA to visit my grandson for his 7th birthday. 

Thank Brian.  WOW - I never knew that site existed, amazing photos on the front page.  I've limited myself to a few FaceBook groups and BoardGameGeek.

This past weekend I traveled back to PA for a big AWI game run by a old wargaming friend who writes his own rules and then puts on big demonstration games. 

The scenario recreated the Battle of Gloucester, 1777. Cornwallis needed to get his troops on the barges and across the Delaware back to Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, Lafayette decided to turn his reconnaissance into a full attack.

The game ended as a resounding American success, as the British had to deploy multiple units to counter the rebel attack.
