GNW game at the Swedish Army Museum Wargaming exebition



Yesterday our gaming club "Little Wars" was running a participation game as a part of the Swedish Army Museums Wargaming exebition. Of course the game had a Swedish focus as it was the Battle of Holowczyn 4 July 1708 between the Swedish forces under command of King Karl VII and the Russians under command of Field-Marshal Anikita I. Repnin. We used the Black Powder rules to play out the battle.

More pictures from the game can you find att the dalauppror blog.

Michael, Jesper and Andy took a trip over the pond to Salute 2017 and together with Jan (Swede in Exile), Steven and Collin they run The Pikemans Lament demogame "Fort Mosquito 1654" at Salute. Minis painted as usual here in Sweden and all terrain build by master terrain builder Jan over in UK.

We even managed to get 2 of the 6 Salute 2017 game awards for our Fort Mosquito game; The Bill Brewer Best Table Memorial Award AND The Robert Bothwell Best Historical Game Memorial Award :)

Finnish wargamers wisited our Club here in Stockholm



Finnish and Swedis military cooperation have increased lately as there was a joint military exercise here in Stockholm in the end of September at our club here in Stockholm ;)

Our gaming club Little Wars was visited by three members, Teemu, Marco and Ludde from the Finnish Wargaming club Nopat & Taktiikka based in Helsinki.


 
On saturday we had a good day of gaming with the theme Finlans/Sweden vs Russia... 

Three games was played, first a Finnish War 1808 game there I introduced them to The Pikeman´s Lament rules that will be published by Osprey in January 2017.

Napoleonic war are a bit out of scoop for the rules as we state that they cover the period to the end of the Greate Northern War 1721, BUT as the rules are so easy to adapt I set up a napolionic game using them.

You can see a bunch of more pictures from the games at my blog Dalauppror

Bolt Action in the Pacific



Little Wars club member Ulf from Latenightpainting has been very busy lately building a two sided force for the WW2 Pacific theatre.



Using the excellent plastic sprues from Warlord Games 28mm Bolt Action range, Ulf has build quite a collection of Imperial Japanese and US Marines.

Here is a gallery with samples of his work so far.
We look forward to seeing these on the gaming table at Little Wars.


IMPERIAL JAPAN






US MARINES

Star Wars - Imperial Assault!



Just before Christmas the new gorgeous Star Wars - Imperial Assault boardgame from Fantasy Flight Games was released. The game features some amazingly crisp sculpted 28mm plastic miniatures, and two different game modes - Campaign if you're a gang of player who regularly meet up for games or the short Skirmish mode, ideal for the occasional gaming night at the club.


Little Wars club member and life long Star Wars enthusiast, Oskar, was quick to place a Pre-Order for the boxed basic game kit. He was equally quick at the painting table, and for the last month or so, we have been gaming with some really awesomely painted minis.

 Here follows a short gallery of Oskar's collection, including the new General Weiss Expansion Pack.
This should be enough visual candy for all you Jedis out there, to heed the call of the Force, and pick up your lightsabers in the struggle against evil!
