The Sikh Attack

The Sikh Attack was a game run by Mark Stevens at HOBBYTOWN on August 21, 2004 in North Jackson. Set in the Punjab in 1846, we used Mark Stevens' wonderfully painted 25mm Sikh Wars army and the rules Flames in the Punjab. The Sikhs almost won, but the steadiness and firepower of the 'John Company' troops proved too much in the end.

Battle Of Froeschwiller

"Battle of Froeschwiller" was the 15mm 1870 Franco-Prussian War game played on February 5, 2005. We used Larry Brom's rules Chassepot & Needlegun. The French players had big plans which melted away in the face of Prussian fire and bayonets. The French army melted also.

They Fell Like Mown Wheat

"They fell like mown wheat" was the 15mm 1870 Franco-Prussian War game in which the power of the French Chassepot rifle was shown to full advantage. We used Larry Brom's rules Chassepot & Needlegun.

The Frenchmen Attack

"The Frenchmen Attack" was the name of an 1870 Franco-Prussian War game played with Larry Reeves 15mm troops, and Larry Brom's rules Chassepot & Needlegun. This game took place November 6, 2004. The French players who were attacking with greater numbers (overwhelming numbers as it turned out) were Phil Young, Sean Pitts, Jay Stribling, Eddie Sansing, John Stangle (who drove all the way from Monroe Louisiana), Bill Estes, and John Murdough (who drove all the way from the middle of nowhere in Arkansas). The Prussian villans (oops - I mean the Prussian players) were Jim Pitts, Rick Loveday, Mark Gilbert, and Sean Pitts.

Sacre Bleu!

"Sacre Bleu!" was our first 28mm 1870 Franco-Prussian War game in many years. We have been purchasing these troops and painting them for at least 4 years. We used Larry Brom's rules Chassepot & Needlegun. The Prussian/German players had a great time. As for the French Players - "Sacre Bleu!"


"Gravemont-St.Privy" was a meeting engagement fought with our 28mm 1870 Franco-Prussian War forces, played August 4, 2007 at SOUTWEST ACADEMY. The armies are composed of forces owned by Robert Whitfield, Jim Pitts and Jay Stribling. As with our previous game, the Prussians came out victorious. We used a slightly modified version pf Larry Brom's rules Chassepot & Needlegun.

Venture Brothers

From the third season, and I think from the last few episodes.
It posits a Victorian Team that pre-dates the original Team
Venture, and explains the origins of the Guild of Calamitous
Intent. I don't want to introduce too many spoilers, but the
parody is mostly a flashback, not the entire episode

Winter of 1914 Trailer

Imperial Japanese Armor

Iron Mole By Steam Noir

The Iron Mole was a concept created by the German's to
tunnel under the enemy trenches and resurface on the
other side, thus creating a tunnel for outflanking the enemy.
Its initial boring test was successful, however, the tunnel it
created proved to be unstable and collapsed on the soldiers
that tried to move through it.
Look through this site! Thanks once again to Sir Tas
for the heads up!

Battle for the Resurfaced Atlantis

Battle for the Resurfaced Atlantis
(Battles by G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T.)

Atlantis by G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T.

British and Germans clashed over territorial disputes on
the newly resurfaced continent. This was an epic Battles
by G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. game in 15mm. Keen observers may
note a certain partisan bias in the reporting of this battle,
as one of our photographers led a heroic cavalry charge in
this incident.

DBA 15-19K British vs Mahdist Sudanese

Big moustaches, dodgy sideburns & lovely hats....
No!!! It's not a 'Village People' reunion, it's 'The British in the Sudan'.
We finally got them finished, so here are a few pics. This Army
represents the listing in the DBA 1500-1900 extensions.

Red Sabres By Jackson Gamers

Red Sabres was a great Red cavalry raid on a massive White Supply column.

They used air power for the first time in one of our games during this affair.

This triumph of the Red forces took place at HOBBYTOWN in Jackson MS

on May 5, 2001 and used our RED AND WHITE rules.

No Man's Land

The Jackson Gamers played two games that were planed on
January 2, 2006. They played a pair of 28mm WWI games
using rules devised by Marc Fluitt and using Marc's nifty home
-made terrain and very nicely painted troops. The rules were
skirmish-level and we played a day game, trying to rescue or
capture (from your point of view) the pilot of a downed German
aeroplane, and then a night game, patrolling into a ruined French

More Cracking good scouting by Lord Tas:

A brilliantly (and recently renamed) blog, this shows Paul's

great foray into the wonderful world of Nefs. He has some

great stuff here, check it out at:

Republic of Sonora

Established on January 18th 1854 by Colonel
William Walker, the Republic of Sonora is
comprised of two states. The first, Lower
California, was liberated from its piteous
state of benign neglect at the hands of the
Mexican Government by Colonel Walker
and his Patriotic band of now-famous
'Immortals' at La Paz, on November 3rd
