On Sunday at the Vikings Club Craig, Bern, Gary, Josh and I played a 330 point (3-4 divisions a side) Saxon versus Vikings game. I forgot to take photos towards the end of the game but the Saxons had no luck with the dice gods and the game ended in defeat. Thanks to everyone in our game as well as all the players in the other games for another fun Sunday's gaming.

Here are a few photos of some of the other games at the club. Apart from our game there was Alan's Vikings vs Normans Saga game, Greg's Ancient Britons vs Early Imperial Romans Hail Caesar game, Doug and Doc's Black Powder game and David's DBA games plus a bring and buy stall for second hand figures, books and games.

  10. Thanks Pat and Mike, we only meet once a month so it gives everyone a chance to dig out their figures for a big game.

    The mat is Greg's I think he might have spray painted it.
