ImagiNations: Battle of WoodenstadtKublacon game convention this year was a hoot, seeing lots of old friends, making new ones, and running and playing games. Saturday I ran a Wars of ImagiNations scenario using my 54mm woodens. For rules I used highly modified Warmaster rules... probably to the point where I can, with a few key changes, have my own set of rules that work best for this period and scale of game.
Usually I pick a half a dozen pics to show; I couldn't really narrow it down this time (and I'm still a bit... okay a lot sleepy from the con) so you guys get an eyeful. Hopefully the hit the spot.

The scenario:The Forthweggian army and it's allies have encircled the town of Woodenstadt, which is desperately holding out against the siege. Empress P has ordered her Marshall, Baron Fossmeisterhaus to lead her army and break the siege, and has taken her coach to directly oversee the battle.

|Cavalry charge near the woods. Much carnage!|
|The counter advance!|
|Baron Fossmeisterhaus advances the army, much to the chagrin of the sheep.|

|The killing fields. Actually the guns missed more than hit in this battle.|
|Forthwegg forces make a final push with their reserves.|
As the battle raged there was much carnage, but the Empress' army made a big push through the center and ended up surrounding Lord Marshal Wiley of the Fortwegg army. Woodenstadt was saved!
|Marching over the killing fields. Oh the woodemanity!|
|The Empress is happy.|
It was a great game, with wonderful players. I think we started around 10:30, and had come to a full conclusion (and 11 or 12 turns) by 1:30pm. Thanks again for all that played, or came by and said hi!
