Well, it's been a while...not least because I've been abroad - I've spent much of August in the USA, and it's been an absolute blast!
ANYWAY...a few weeks ago, I finally got the chance to get back to my Wednesday gaming group and play Guy again - this time (having put together a bunch of Sarissa scenery for him) to play Antares.
Now, I'll admit: I'm not a big fan of the aesthetic of Warlord's Antares universe - some of it's great, but much of it just isn't to my taste. The gameplay, though, was something I was excited about - a bit like Bolt Action but with d10 instead of the much more limited d6.
I didn't take a huge amount of photos, and I can't remember the details, but the basics are that we played 1000 points; I fielded Concord against Algoryn (all the minis were Guy's) and although we inevitably fudged quite a few of the rules, Concord won quite squarely.
There are a LOT of things about this game that I like, so I fully intend to play more of it when I get back to Blighty. Although I don't intend to buy any more toys, Warlord gave me a free mini rulebook, and I intend to devour it, warts and all. You'll be hearing more yet about Antares, I fancy!
For now, though, blogger is really playing up, so here are just some pics.

I have no idea why blogger insists on left-justifying the pic above (of my transport disgorging its troops)
More details about my thoughts on the Antares game will DEFINITELY follow. This is an interesting one. Hmmm...
