Games Day: Zeds and Vikings

Had some of the Lads (Pete, Ken and Steve) around for a Games day yesterday.  Between the brews, chats and BBQ lunch we managed to get two games in:

Dark Age skirmishing action was a LOT of fun - each player had 5 Warriors including an archer.  Mission: be the first to loot the Long Hall in the centre of the table (which I had to get up early to finish painting).  In typical Viking fashion, sharing was not high on anybody's priority list!  Great fun and a full Battle report to follow.
Little Pigs, Little Pigs, Let us come In....
 And the old favourite ZOMBIES!!! saw the light of day too.  Steve hadn't played before and we hadn't tried with 5 players before either.  The Lad came a close second but couldn't catch me in the end (first time I've won this game actually!).  The usual backstabbing and treachery ensured fun for all.

We are trying to make Game Days a monthly event this year, so I am looking forward to some varied and regular gaming for once (before I relocate at the end of this year anyway).

In unrelated news, I also got a package from the UK filled with lovely plastic Daleks - thanks very much Steve!  Lots of 'ooh-aah'ing by the boys, and one suggestion to turn one pack into a Dalek Blood Bowl team - which isn't as silly as it first sounds actually...


  1. LOL! When I read the title of this post I thought it was Vikings v Zombies!! Looks good though, what rules did you use for the Vikings?

  2. Funnily enough Ray, the Lad had the same suggestion too - to resurrect his casualties!

    We used Featherstone's Skirmish Wargames set - very simple, very quick and most of all FUN!

    I've posted a detailed battle report here:
