The Day of 2 Games!

Here are a few picks from a Saturday of gaming at Rob's.
We started out with a game of Where Heroes Dare! and I ran the first Chapter of the Shield of the Gods Campaign for Keith and Rob.

Delphi, Greece Where Heroes Dare!

The players deploy.

Captain Achilles Rockets to the high ground and a sabotaged truck explodes showering him with debris but leaving him unharmed.

Kumar rushes to aid the downed Hogan, still smoking from the rounds of Tommy Chung!

The Professor is found, but where is the Aegis Shield?!

Ying Fang, Kong Fang's wicked daughter has found the shield! Achilles rockets into hand to hand with this fiendish femme fatale, but after myriads of blows he is struck down by her poisened blade. A win for Rob and the forces of Kong Fang!

Some shots of Rob's shelf.

15mm goodies!

Even some 15mm Pulp.

Looks like the makings of a Weird War!

Our next game, 15mm Disposable Heroes WW2 in the Pacific.

Some shots of Rob's Motor pool.

The Japanese hold the high ground.

Rob Commands the Japanese while Keith and I man the US Army forces.

US infantry adavance and the Stewies go to work on the Japanese armor.

Bazooka shots begin to take down the armor of the Rising Sun.

A steady advance under withering fire from the cliffs and the bunker.

The Tiki Room is secured and the Imperial armor gets brewed.

Relentless fire from the cliffs.

The forces in the bunker get worn down, but hold fast.

The Japanese advance!

Really fun game, I hadn't played a 15mm DH game before and this was a lot of fun. The Japanese won in the end, even after a few desperate charges. The table played on was only 30 x 30 but still played out like a 4 x 6 28mm game. Might have to think more about 15s, hmmmm.

More to come!

  3. Great post!

    Does Rob have a blog somewhere? His figures look great!

    I have Disposable Heroes coming in the mail but after watching "The Pacific" I have wanted to play Pacific battles using 28mm. Maybe I need to look to 15mm again :)

    Please keep the reports coming.

    Happy Gaming,

    Allan

  4. Looks like fun. I love the ruleset and I have a bunch of flames of war stuff collecting dust cause I do not like that system. One question I have is what changes did you do if any to the measurements for movement and range?

  5. Hi LeeAnne, we kept all the measurements the same as for 28mm and it played fine.
