Post by Cardinal Biggles » Tue Oct 23, 2007 8:28 am

These are pics from the Big Game . first time we of the KGK have put on a display game. My intention was to attract more peole to our club..which doesn't seem to have happened! We had a lot of fun..Nearly all the figures are Valiant and the vehichles and guns are a mix of Raventhorpe, Italeri, Hasegawa, Hat and Britannia.

That was a nice game! The setup and game play gave it a very "intense" feel which i thought was great. :)

and the arty After the Goldrush version

Scots Greys appear on the German flank

Hat sherman, Raventhorpe SC 1/2 track and carriers Skytrex stuarts Valiant infantry
Image
Ace 150 mm gun Valiant crew, you can always count on gamers getting guns into places you the moderator of the game never intended them to go..it is an infantry position boys! they didn't last long..
Image
the very masculine Raventhorpe gunners being encouraged by a Valiant officer, with a bit of an advertising logo thing going on behind them! ACE guns
Image
Valiant Brits buggerising around in one of my scratch built hedge rows...all manner of bad things were in store for them

italeri 25lbers, a Britannia and rest Raventhorpe crew, with a valiant officer encouraging from the side
