I was thinking of attending Saturday only, might have to seriously reconsider. I would like some food please, anything is fine.

In terms of soundtracks nothing beats...

Ok - now we have finished taunting the herbivores back to business.

Cheers Rab - you're on the roster. Speaking of taunting, I hope your Kniggits are well up on their Holy Grail quotes and outrageous French accents with which they can abuse their besiegers. I'm sure the cannon will be well received and I have a few militia types you can have if no one else needs them.

Excellent, the O'Hammerers are landing early Friday morning, taking a trip into Nottingham and then heading out to Foundry so we can meet up have a game of something and set up the siege.


Sounds like a plan John - pm me if you've anything in mind at all. I'll let you know as soon as I can what sort of time I can get down there.

Lenihan - as soon as you've solved your existential crisis can you let me know if you require feeding on the Saturday.

To all and sundry - I think the key information Marcus will need is how many folks want an evening meal there. I'll add meal requirements I've got so far to the list on the first page - check it and let me know if I've got it wrong. Might be easiest if you pm me from now on with that info to save it getting lost in this thread.

Mr F. - I think this might also be appropriate...

Re: BOYL The Engines of Avalone Siege game

Thought it may be apropriate to add my thoughts to this discussion as mentioned in the events list:

Way back when we first started talking about 2014 I proposed i would run the Warhammer siege scenario:

"The siege of Siege of Caraz-Lumba"

What with one siege game already well progressed is it worth still bringing Caraz-Lumbar or would it be better to throw my lot in with the other siege game. I can't be bothered bringing Caraz- Lumba if I just end up sitting on my own watching another bigger siege take place.

I can bring 3 mighty fortresses (one set is conversion fodder for breeches, keeps etc.) and pretty much whatever army people thing appropriate. On the Orc front more siege machines than you can shake a stick at including a couple of siege towers. Only problem with this idea is how much is too much? There is the potential to turn the whole thing into a section of a besieged city over two days with this much castle. Different city quarters under the command of different captains, the sea elf quarter defended by merchant companies and ships companies, the human militias, the dwarven quarters and all that entails for cannon and gun powder.

Outside the goblinoid armys siege machines pound the city walls, already a breach has developed defended by stalwart human Templars. Just the a call to arms erupts in the slums, a Skaven tunnel has broken through and street to street fighting ensues.

Anyway this could all be too much, Thantsants let me know if you'd like to join forces and up the level or if you'd like a hand with your original idea.

Re: BOYL The Engines of Avalone Siege game

Hi Erny - I think I remember you mentioning it now - sorry to steal your thunder!

We didn't get round to playing the (originally much smaller) Siege game I had planned for my gaming weekend in the Lakes so figured that the Oldhammer Weekend would be a good time to try again. It seems to have grown a bit since then...

I'd be more than happy for you to join us if that's ok with you. I'm only around to play Siege on Saturday as I have a big Epic game planned for Sunday - no reason why the rest of you can't play on though.

I like the idea of a besieged city with different quarters I must say, but I'd also like to keep in the idea of the farmsteads and coppices for supply points - there's bound to be some great little skirmishes and sally forth's fought outside the walls for their control - not to mention loads of little sub-missions to keep all players actively doing something.

The opportunity to put 6 Fortresses together (with a seventh there to represent breached sections) is not to be missed. How about having the city walls as a corner jutting out into the table so that only one corner is city, leaving the rest of our 12x8 ft space left for farmsteads, fields, etc? That could also end up with effectively 2 siege assaults going on on the same table. Don't forget we could do with a hill full of artillery for the Engines of Avalone scenario.

I was wondering if we could get some tunnelling included - as well as Gnome/Dwarf counter-tunnelling measures - so a Skaven sneak attack would be brilliant!

So all in all - yes Erny we'd love you on board. Personally I'd like the game to come to some kind of resolution for me by the end of Saturday but I have no problem with you lot carrying on with it on Sunday if needs be.

What does everyone else think?
