7TV Apocalypse

Lincombe Barn Wargames Society is of course on hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak. So here are some pictures of a game we had last year using 7TV Apocalypse from Crooked Dice.



We had four players in two teams and 50 ratings (points) per player.  There was one moveable objective in a ruined temple in the centre of the table.

This was my team which included and Action Hero and Monster Hunter as it's stars.

The Simians were slow to get moving as they had no unit leader, Nathanial complained "we're monkeys, we're not organised eneugh for this sort of thing".

On of Clive's savage types scales the temple with a grappling hook.

We don't want to fight that thing hand to hand so we ran it over with the truck

This truck was equipped with a machine gun which had just mown down a bunch of Clives savages. I was determined to take it out, which took a lot of models some time.

More car-nage as we attempt to stop the enemy getting the objective off table.

Single combat between opposing stars. The soldiers joined in. My medic failed to arrive in time to save Clive's character.

My Monster Hunter kept finding herself in the wrong place to carry out any slayage. Here she fails to reach the all star melee before the game ends.

The other side won. This was a fun game with plenty of mayhem and monkey related banter. 7TV is popular at the club with the original spy-fi version and pulp also being played.

Sunday 16th Feb All-Dayer

Last Sunday was one of our all-dayers at Lincombe Barn Wargames Society. We had a pretty good turnout and there were plenty of games being played. 

They ranged from Peninsular War Sharp Practice, via HoTT, Saga: Age of Magic, Warhammer Ancient Battles and an unknown AWI game to Alien Squad Leader.














We actually played through a short HoTT campaign, with a variety of armies (Barbarians, Pirates, two lots of Orcs) invading an island continent and fighting both against the defenders and one another. This was rather successful and we will probably do something else along these lines again in the future.

If there are any wargamers in the Bristol area, or even a bit further afield who would like to play regularly on a Sunday afternoon, we are located at Lincombe Barn, Overndale Road, Downend, BS16 2RW.
