Godendag 2022: Wargaming at Danger level zero

Even the night before the competition, I had my doubts whether Godendag 2022 would be a success. Would the resolve of the sixty odd players hold? Would ( prime🤣) minister Dripford change the regulations once more? On the morning of the event, I need not have feared. The Field of Glory were already set up and the To the Strongest tourney was almost through their first game. But, the L‘art de la Guerre boots don’t start till they’ve had at least one McDonalds breakfast!

We had a range of armies and the standard of paintwork has just gone from strength to strength!

Umpire and West Country Dice Stud : Andy “ Tory- boy” Unwin- known for his firm but unfounded rulings!

Gordon Malcolm – Hannibal in Italy, Steve Price- Selukid, Edward Ashley Glew Galatian madmen, Andrew Whitby- Archie Medes Persians, Mark Clarke- Hannibal in Birmingham, Don McHugh- Alexander the Great, Keith Mcglynn- Selukid cheese, Andrew Unwin- Hurri Mitani ffs! Richard ‘generosity’ Walker- Selukid, Chris Jackson🧸Republican/Repugnant Romans, me – Bacterial Greeks, mark fry- Early Carthage, Mike Shephard- Pergammon.
