The Great War - WWI Skirmish


Hello Lads just a few images from the two games of WWI skirmish played today at the club. Rules were 'The Great War' Warhammer set..now out of print. Not a bad set however a bit limited in army lists, only British, French and German early and late war.


The majority of the terrain was scratch built by Leroy Simpson and also Leroy painted and owns all the figures. He painted them about six years ago and they have never been used...So old Nathan sticky figures grabbed them and here they are two games in four hours..nice


So please enjoy the images of the game and hopefully a few more hidden collections might make day light sometime in the new year????

Absolutely awesome! Your table looks wonderful and the figures are simply outstanding. Have to scroll through this a few times to make sure I don' miss anything. Thanks for sharing.

What a fantastic sight Vinnie!

Thanks all for the comments I will write up a little battle report tomorrow. Carlo the fields are remarkably easy to make and cheap. I will send a couple over your way one day if you like?

Regards

Vinnie

Amazing looking game - terrific terrain and fabulous figs! I have those rules and also the supplement Over the Top - which has US and later army lists. Haven't played it in a while though. In fact, I'm thinking if I play WW1 again, I might try adapting Bolt Action to see how it plays. Desn

Lovely painting and tabletop. Its so good that they got out of the box after such a long "rest."

Wonderful! I love everything about this, from the figures through the terrain and the photography, which shows it off to great effect. I'm looking forward to the AAR.

Great take and models. Very impressive all round.

Very nice. I also have a bunch of WW1 figures that need to see the light of day.
