AVBCW: The Bridge Over the River Wye AAR IV

Now the Anglicans spring their surprise – they have crossed the river using the secret tunnel to Foy !

The Fascist forces re-organise to this surprise attack !


Two steam powered trucks, with a line of Anglicans in front of them. Yes, Captain Arrowsmith is not with us, but Scott is channeling his presence, so he went “off road“…

I allowed every model a 2d6 move to get out of the way…then the trucks rolled in and each model an additional d6 (1) to avoid being squished….

And then made them roll for damage to the trucks !
Both were knocked out of action…

So after losing 5 men to the off roading trucks, the Anglicans lined up and riddled the trucks with bullets.

Sir Guy’s troops deploy:

A steam truck compete with milk churns – filled with explosives !

Lets hope they are not lactose intolerant !

Meanwhile, at Foy the Anglican cavalry try and force the bridge with high casualties.

The Baron of Foy and his Royalist lackeys have employed the local poachers who hid in the field with their shotguns…

At the Bridge, Sir Guy’s forces swarm over the bridge despite the artillery and mortar fire. Their steam powered truck delivered the milk churns and the troops bravely carried on to the other side to ensure the bridge was destroyed.

The fascists deploy.

The Royalists deplpy.

The Anglican’s charge across the bridge into a hail of lead…

The lackeys of the Royalists are waiting with Shotguns…

With the first wave defeated, more are sent across the river including a Bren Gun Universal Carrier…

Sir Guy:

“Gentlemen, this will be a glorious day!
Before us we have our enemy, the fascists.
They are foolish.
They are feeble.
They are the whipping dogs of foreign powers.
Well today, we shall whip those dogs.
We shall send them running all the way back to Florence,
with their tails between their legs.
Gentlemen, for God and for England!”


“For God and for England!”


The Farm…Doug Cowie, owner of EM-4 the owner/producer was in attendance and got barracked about taking orders…he could have sold another half dozen easily…as one gent said I would have to clean the drool off of the model…

Note the empty glasses ! 😉

AVBCW: Herefordian factions

More updates to the factions playing on Saturday at the Big Game: The Bridge Over the River Wye.

Roo has his background done I know, just one left to go.

Should be a good game with such excellent backgrounds, and yes some factions are getting special rules.

In the meantime I am working on six foots worth of hedge – yes really six foots worth because when you have two 10×6 tables that goes nowhere fast.

Oh and best of all, I visited the dentist, the one who describes my mouth as boring, because he has nothing to do, and yes it is still boring he had nothing to do. A full head of gnashers is intact with no dentures, fillings or any other stuff. So beware if I am turned into a zombie, because my bite is going to be viscous. 😉

AVBCW: The Bridge Over the River Wye…III

A bit of digital dieting ove rthe last few days so I can complete some more scenery for the AVBCW Big Game I’m running on Saturday.

This is more intersting – Byakhee Stuart has finished off an old Citadel Nippon Rocket launcher and crew.

I suppose I ought to pull my finger out and finish off a Hobgoblin one !

In the meantime, adjustments have been made to the pages for Bridge Over the River Wye.
