Last Sunday the first Little Wars Canberra event was held at the Vikings Club in Lanyon and a fun time was had by all. While it was busier in the morning than in the afternoon, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves either playing games or spending their hard earned cash on figures, rules, paint, terrain or other modelling supplies. Thanks to Leigh, Ian, Greg and all the other guys at the club who organised it all.

Rick and I ran a Command and Colors Ancients game of the Battle of Zama. Gary, Chris and Michael were the Roman commanders and Garry and Michael were the Carthaginian commanders. For much of the game it was fairly level pegging but in the end the Romans won by eight victory banners to five. Thanks to everyone for playing. The photos of our game are followed by photos of some of the other games as well.

  1. What a fabulous game and I like the look of some of the others on display too - always fancied a Ned Kelly miniature.

    1. Thanks Michael, Alan said the Glenrowan shoot out is a tough scenario for Ned - he has only made it out alive once.
