Reiving in the Borders

As we were spending a week in the Borders, I decided to take along my Border Reiver armies for HOTT so we could have a game or two in preparation for the Berkeley tournament.

In the end we only got to play one game and there's only a couple of half-decent pictures.

Contrary to my expectations there was no terrain in the toolbox containing the armies so I had to improvise with lichen and some rocks.

The battle degenerated, as HOTT armies with lots of Riders often seem to, into a confused melee with the Raiders (me) defeating the Warden's Men (Jamie) by taking out 12AP.

What a great idea taking the relevant game with you.

Richard, It's the Kent coast next year. Operation Sealion?

Now there is an idea. I'm sure you can squeeze some 6mm WWII in the luggage.
