BFG and AWI

I played a refresher game of Battlefleet Gothic, using Gorillamo's lovely painted ships.We ran two cruisers at each other- I took Chaos against his Imperial fleet. I had squadrons of bombers as well, which made a big difference when his nova cannon failed to hit and he had no fighters. I crippled his ships in fairly short order- it's a fun little space naval game.

I'm sure there will be more BFG in the future as Gorillamo has many more painted ships.

I also got to try out the newest Commands & Colors game, Tricorne. This is set in the American Revolution, and is a nice balance between linear formations and woodland skirmishing. Morale plays a big role, and the positioning of your leaders is important. This is a 'core game', so I'm sure future expansions beckon with French, Indians, and eventually the Seven Years War.
Tricorne- my continentals face down the British and their German allies.

PS- I've thrown my hat in the ring for Zomtober- I'll be painting more figures from Last Night on Earth over the next few weeks.

  1. I used to love BFG back in the day. Had buddies who played and we all had big fleets. Good fun!

    1. Suffers a bit from IGOUGO, but is otherwise serviceable.

    1. There's a few alternatives- Full Thrust, Armada, Firestorm etc. They'll all have their pros and cons.

    1. It is a bit of nostalgia, isn't it!
