Sally’s High Elves v Paul’s Barbarian’s

With the wargames club still suspended due to the CV 19 ‘lockdown’ it would seem the right time for Sally to step forward bravely and play a Hordes and Heroes game. It’s been quite a while since she’s played so it was only fair that she should choose the opposing armies. Sally chose High Elves, a fa...

Re: Painting the 'Ming'

Thanks for the thumbs up! I researched some authentic Chinese symbols, but after painting the first few I decided that they didn't look right on the shields. I then started to just doodle various abstract patterns which would fit better onto the shield shapes. This use of 'artistic license' seemed t...

Hordes & Heroes via Skype: Samurai v Koreans

This was our first Skype game of Hordes and Heroes with the two players 3250 miles apart! Alex based in Ottawa Canada, and myself based in Warsop in Nottinghamshire. With the board and miniatures in the UK it was vital that the Canadian player had a clear view of the table and the exact locations of...

The missing battle reports - Games before lock down!

On the last two club nights on the 3rd and 10th March, before the club meetings were temporarily suspended due to the covid-19 virus, we played four H&H medieval games. I found the photos and brief notes for these which I never got round to writing-up. All four games featured a French Hundred Years ...

Hammerhead report 2020

Having watched and listened to what seemed like every Corona-19 virus filled news bulletin for three weeks, on Thursday, as the government undecidedly dithered, following the government guidelines we decided Hammerhead was ‘good to go.’ And, thanks to the support of the Forest Outlaws, traders, game...

Re: HHM shooting, impacts, hussite question

Hi Julias 1. Artillery can shoot at any target within range provided that they can trace a clear line of hexes to the target hex. However, artillery units must shoot at at any enemy unit moving into hex-to-hex contact in preference over any other potential target. Small arms shooters must shoot at t...

Re: Hordes & Heroes medieval hex facing questions

Hi Julias, Any unit can use its 'movement phase' to stay within its current hex, change its current formation and/or direction of facing. This is still 'movement' but within the same hex. Shooters, small arms and artillery, can change direction of facing within a hex in their own sides movement phas...

These equal point armies were constructed with large contingents of heavy cavalry; the Teutonic order had 5 units of ‘A’ class Teutonic knights plus 3 units of mounted crossbow, and the French 8 heavy cavalry and 6 units of mounted sergeants. Both armies also had sizeable contingents of infantry to ...
