Control The River - A 'Shadow Of The Eagles' Scenario

Just a quick post to flag up a recent SotE game I had with my old buddy Steve. Of particular interest as it uses a table just 4' x 3', and really distinctive 10mm MDF figures. The game in question is scenario 2 from the rulebook itself.

Steve has put out a fine post detailing the action, so I won't tread on his toes by doing the same here. However, there is a supporting post on the SotE blog which adds a few points on the rules and how they functioned.

Angus Konstam
Angus is of course a prolific and highly respected military history author, as well as a well-known wargamer.  I can't resist flagging up Angus's Orkney Wargames blog, as Angus has been trying out SotE recently and seems to be enjoying them. Well worth a visit for the wide variety of games played in all periods.

Hope to see you soon with a bigger post about something really interesting! If I can work out what that might be.

'Til next time!

It was great to cross swords once again Keith and of course to have a good chat too. Playing on a 4' x 3' table whilst being able to sit down and play the game easily is a big bonus as we get older!

Too bad there were not any close-up pictures of the MDF figures on your blog or the other ones you linked to. They would be really interesting to inspect.

There's a close up of an artillery battery on the Shadow of the Eagles blog article.
