25mm pirates Barnacle Bill and Foundry saturday and description of Saturdays Pirate game 50th birthday celebration

Royal Navy reinforcements move in to attack the pirates from the rear as they skirt Zulu point island, but not before the Pirates had set fire to several structures including the Royal Governors vineyards. Pirates eventually gained full control of the town, Most destruction goes to
Ester and Grayson for burning the most structures in both games. But not before the Governors Artilery sank at least two of the offensive odeferous pirates near Skull islands point - As in Pirates of the Carribean, The Pirates stole the cursed silver plated skeleton and gor pounded by the slow loading artillery for their neferious deeds.
Andy's Pirates attack the towns defenders as they scurry for cover

The second game as new pirate commanders take over from the first game and continue to rampage and pillage the town. Stephen Sisk, Andy Austin and Grayson Wooland






Pirate Game continues as the Fort and town are attacked several (newbies) were participating!!!



















The first Pirate game on the New table in the refurbished basement - pirates to be named later, But Andy is next to me as he arrived for my 50th birthday party held the same day.

New wargame table completed

Well hope to have pics here soon of action on Lake Lightway in the new Soaring Eagles gaming table. Andy and I are almost finished putting it together, its a great 12 x 6 gaming surface that
looks amazing. We added 1 x 4's the length all around for potential 2x2 terrain boards to be added some time in the future. In the mean time its great having a lip that keeps the figures from falling off the table edge.

First game out of the box will be a Napoleonic action set in the Iberian Peninsula with a British Expeditionary force makes a landing to reinforce their Allies as the French approach to muck it up for them as much as possible. The new table will be a blessing from all that happened as Andy and I continue to make minor repairs from the floods of September.
