Fantasy Battles by GASLIGHT Game at Cold Wars

On Saturday morning, Dave Wood ran a Fantasy variant of Battles by GASLIGHT. I had had the opportunity to help playtest this game, and it was a blast.

S-283 - Fantasy by GASLIGHT
Sat. 9:00 AM, 4 hrs, 6 players
GM: Dave Wood and HAWKS
Fantasy 28mm, Rules: Battles by GASLIGHT
The humans have joined the dwarves and elves in their ongoing
battle against the orcs and their ratling allies and are attempting to
retake the lost elven homeland. In this battle can the allies reclaim
the elven shrine, or will the orcs continue to desecrate this sacred
elven site?
Notes: Children under 13 welcome with a playing adult

Dave, in the blue shirt, explains the rules to the players.

One of the best things about the game was getting to see all of Dave's great collection of vintage Fantasy figures. There are some real classics.

Players of the 'Good' alliance move their figures.

There were a lot of interesting rule modifications for magic that Dave made to help give the game a good Fantasy feel.

The battle heats up all across the table.

Another view of a swirling melee.
