Sunday games – Summer / Autumn 2019

We now have dates for our BIG Sunday games through to the end of the year, which are :

Sunday 28th July
Sunday 29th September
Sunday 24th November

Please let me know via the contact form if you would like to take part.

Ligny club game

Following the well received game we put on at Salute – we finally got to play the Ligny game ourselves using the beautiful scenery that Martin built with some help from Gary and David.

The French plan was to attack on both flanks – holding the Prussian wings in place and stopping significant re-inforcement of the town. This is exactly how it played out.

The Prussians put up a good fight but the superior class of the French troops ground their way through the village and without any Prussian troop movement from either flank to help support the French plan worked as intended.

An amazing looking table.

Austerlitz 2018 at the WHC

A terrific game last weekend at the Wargames Holiday Centre re-fighting the battle of Austerlitz. Result was a resounding French victory (again). Hope you enjoy the pictures which give a feel for the action.

Rules were, of course, General d’Armee – with Mr Brown taking the Allied left flank.

A big thank you to everyone that took part – wargaming at its very best.

New GdA video

Dave Brown and Reisswitz Press have put out a new video covering rules and tactics including a play through and FAQ. Definitely worth a view if you like the GdA rules.

General d’Armee QRS

Proud to announce the launch of an online QRS for General d’Armee which was specifically designed for mobile devices (but can also be accessed on a PC).

You can access the General d’Armee QRS at : https://loughtonstrikeforce.co.uk/gda/ 

It would be great to get your feedback, especially details of any errors or bugs. You can use the link in the app or the contact form on this site to give your report .

Quatre Bras (in Writtle)

A highly enjoyable game at the Essex Warriors venue in Writtle at the weekend with a good turn out of LSF players (and friends) enjoying a Quatre Bras scenario presented by David Brown and using his General d’Armee rules.

In the end the French attack was stopped before it could reach the crossroad – we just couldn’t get there quick enough!

Quatre Bras in full swing, the French front line is moving up to engage the initial Allied formations of Brunswick and Bylandt.

Gemioncourt falls to the French,

Lancers move up the threaten the Nassuers.

Picton arrives to shore up the beleaguered Allies!

They are coming on in the same old style!

The Nassuers are pushed back!

A brave Brunswick general leads forward his skirmishers!

Kellerman arrives!

Picton fully deployed.

The final French attack!

New (old) venue

With immediate effect, the club has returned to meeting at the Loughton Club at 8 Station Road, Loughton, Essex IG10 4NX.

We meet in the upstairs bar and there is plenty of room and much-improved lighting!

Club dates

The club night has changed to Wednesday evenings at the RBL Club, Loughton.

We also have some planned Sunday games :

  • June            –      17th
  • August        –      19th

Look forward to seeing you there

Salute 2018 (General d’Armee)

We put on a small General d’Armee game to support the TooFatLardies and Reisswitz Press who has a stand at Salute. 

The picture shows d’Erlon’s attack against the Allied lines at Waterloo. 

A fun game which, unlike most demo games, almost felt like it reached a result!

Thanks to the many interested folks that stopped by to say “Hi” or ask about the rules.

This will include a couple of GdA games (one on Waterloo day!) and a Pickett’s charge game.
