Witchfinder General - Days of Revelation Rule Book Review

Prime your Pan.... for there is evil abroad this night!!  It is All Hallows eve, and the nights are dark in old England. A time when tales are told of things unknown that stalk in the shadows, things that hunt the ancient moorlands, sounds from unseen things in the oldest houses and churchyards. 

In a country as old and full of stories, folklore and legends as England is, there is history everywhere you look and stories to find.  I encourage you all to look into your local history dig out the stories and USE them, look to your local folk lore and tales, we have a rich history here and this is a great way to use it.

So for our special Halloween review, we bring to you......

X-Wing Mini Battle Report

I got to break out the Xwing toys and have a game against my best buddy Scott.  Having mostly been playing Imperials, I decided to stick with them, and try a slight variant of a list I enjoy.  I had no idea what Scott was taking apart from it was Rebel.
So this is what I ended up taking....

I love Bolt Action, and I need to play more, so I have finalised (well for now until I get more toys) my 1000pt list for my Germans, here I shall go through my thinking for it.

Its mainly a Veteran list, hard bitten experienced, hard to kill soldiers.

So leading them to battle is a Vet 2nd Lt with his adjutant.

Billy Ruffian the Bellerophon

I have just finished reading this, it was written by David Cordingly. A fantastic read!

This is the story of the Bellerophon, a 74-gun ship of the line known to her crew as the Billy Ruffian. She began life in a small shipyard near Rochester on the River Medway and ended it as a prison hulk at Plymouth. In the intervening years the Bellerophon played a conspicuous part in three famous sea battles: the battle of the Glorious First of June in 1794; the battle of the Nile which halted Napoleon’s ambitions in the East; and the battle of Trafalgar during which her captain was shot dead with a musket ball an hour before Nelson himself was mortally wounded. But the most famous event in the life of this remarkable ship took place in 1815, six weeks after the Battle of Waterloo: Napoleon had arrived in Rochefort hoping to escape to America but found his route blocked by the Bellerophon and surrendered to the captain of the ship which had dogged his footsteps for more than twenty years. Excerpts from the book were broadcast on BBC Radio 4 as Book of the Week.
