League of Gentlemen Anti-Alchemists (updated 17/4)

Post by levied troop » Wed Feb 17, 2021 7:36 pm

For quite a few years, a band of so-called gentlemen (Neanderthal, Grey Dwarf, the Naked Cyclist and the Good Looking one) have disgraced various war-games shows with displays of toy soldiers. I realised that there's no one place where we did retain photos of the various games and so will attempt to document these displays, including some games run under the South East Essex Military Society (SEEMS) banner that were the entire output of the anti-alchemists before they outed themselves.

In the first case, may I present The Great Armada, at SELWG in a sports hall in Lewisham circa 1988/89:Image

Seriously impressive. And there's a whole lot of goodness to follow. Can't wait.

I'm all for a bit of Elizabethan naval mayhem :D Looks like an excellent game. I've always felt a tickle to do something based around a fictional Armada invasion campaign.

That's really nice.
Arguably, a rigged sailing vessel is the most beautiful weapon of war.

Many thanks gents.

Here's the Norton St Phillip game, the battle before Sedgemoor during the Monmouth Rebellion and a close-run thing in real life - the chance Monmouth had to actually win.

The show here is Cressing Temple 2008, held in a tithe barn built in the 14th century:Image
