Club meeting 23 October

A couple of games for people not at competitions yesterday.
FOG-N: Brett (French) played Stuart (Russian) with another playtest of some potential rule changes.
15mm Medieval: Alan (Castillian) played Kendall (100YW English) using Kings of War Historical and then L'Art de la Guerre. Verdicts - KoWH is fun but not particularly serious although if both players make a more historical army then it's a nice, quick set of rules. LADG is a bit like a mashup of all the best parts of FoG and DBx, size is comparable to DBMM240. Quick and enjoyable game and can see why it's picking up traction in Europe.

FOG-N - Andrew (British) played Brett (French)
