Quick, nice and practicable! Cheers!

Okay, yesterday the big Multiplayer was erm played.....:D


6 Players, lots of stuff to eat, 4 hours playing time...:)
We played heavily house ruled Dispo Heroes. 3 Brits vs. 3 Afghans.

In the scenario the brits had to conquer the central little fortress.
Victory point were awarded for killing soldiers....;)


Here are the starting positions...

The red and the black cubs are victory points, wich can be collected. Red only by the brits, black only by the afghans.




Close up of the scots...before they ran into a haily of musketry....







Lt. Strand is prepairing his attack.






The Pathans and afghans get ready for their ambush.





The game got on quite well, perhaps a little slow....tooo big of a table...and no magic portals.





The afghans are defeated in the end...to much house rules in favour of the brits.....;)






Lt. Strand forced his way in the fortress...and stayed there till the end....and got the MVP award.





Scenario should have been more balanced towards the afghans...but just a bit.



Great Catering and a good game with really nice company made for a great finishing point for this little project.


Cheers,
Don

Great table setup! Must have been a very enjoyable game!
Interested about the black and red cubs...
Collecting victory points must be a great motivation to form your strategy!

This is a most excellent thread, well done Don. You have managed to both inspire and shame me at the same time.
