Covid Club Project
Well I was up in Iceland and had to be in quarantine for five days so nothing to do but read rules which then lead to ordering more figures and more rules a vicious cycle!
But I had seen the new Too Fat Lardies announcing their new rules Infamy Infamy. I liked what I saw and I was talking to Nicolai and he also liked what he saw. So of course I ordered the pdf while in quarantine and read them, and watched some videos and read some battle reports. And having nothing to do for four more days I went a head and ordered some Romans and Ancient Britons from Vitrix.
Now coming back home and finding the Covid running rampant. I was thinking of ways to keep our community of gamers going and thought perhaps this would be a great club project. First you dont need a lot of figures 40-50 28mm figures, Vitrix plastic figures dont cost a lot, shield decals you can get from Vitrix as you order the figures and we could also share figures as the boxes contain anything from 25 figures or so to 60, (for example I need four chariots for my Britons but they come in packs of 3 so some one else could use the extra one if I order two boxes.
The interesting thing is the game looks really good, it is not a large battle game nor is it a man to man skirmish. The Romans have special Drill that they can use but they have to time it correctly, the Barbarians use fervor that they have to build up to maximize the ferocious charge that they unleash. Hidden units for the Barbarians as the Romans march on to the table.
SO what do you guys think? Let me know if any one is intrested and we can coordinate the buying and painting of figures so once Putin releases his Covid tea cure we can have some fun games.
Here are some links

So what are you guys waiting for.
Jeg synes det ser sjovt ud og spiller meget gerne med. Er dog ret booket må male/baseringsfronten, så der kommer til at gå noget tid før jeg kan lave noget - men spiller gerne med hvis andre kan producere nogle styrker. Har læst lidt om det og synes faktisk det æyder meget fedt.
Har nogle kasser prætorianere og gallere som jeg købte til Frederik for år tilbage og aldrig fik malet - de gives væk til dem der har lyst til at male dem til klubben.
Spændende, Nicolai jeg vil godt prøve at male dine figurer. Kan vi aftalte onsdag 30 SEP?
Vil ideen være at lave turneringer, alle mod alle på tværs af klubben William?
Glad you are going to join, not sure about Compations at this point but it is worth a try.
By the way I and Michael will be trying Infamy Infamy at the club on Oct 7th. We have some romans but we have enough stand ins to try the game.
Ok slight technical promlem last week. However we have set up the table and plan a game 14th Oct.
Beklager, men det var ikke dagen i går. Jeg vender tilbage senere
Well we played a game last Wednesday and it was a lot of fun, with the Iron hard Romans marching on to the table to demand some grain from the village, the screaming Britons ambushed from all sides. There is an amazing amount of subtlety in the rules and the Romans and the Barbarians handle quite differently. We are going at it again next Wednesday.
