Battle of Qadisyyah 636 AD - Devon Wargames Group
« on: October 28, 2017, 07:21:30 AM »
One of four games played this month at the DWG was the Battle of Qadisyyah fought between the old and the new forces at play in the middle-east as the Sassanid Empire locked horns with the rising Islamic army, using Swordpoint.



If you would like to some thoughts about the rules and how the game turned out then just follow the link to the club blog.

An impressive looking game and interesting battle report. I am also considering using Swordpoint so this was food for thought.

Great battle report and nice looking battle, thanks for posting
If it isn't enjoyable, it isn't gaming!

Very nice AAR and pics, JJ! Glad to see that you enjoyed using the Swordpoint rules for your battle. For me, the Momentum tokens are one of the outstanding features of the game.
