Christmas Flintloque Game

I finally got round to playing my planned Christmas game of Flintloque a few weeks back. A little late, but I ended up needing a few practice runs to get the enemy AI options how I wanted them. It was a straightforward game, with my Ferach trying to cross from one corner of the table to the other, while the Gingerbread men tried to stop them. I wrote it up in my usual format, although the Freach are speaking their native tongue!








All in all it was a fun little skirmish. I look forward to getting larger and more varied forces on the table using these rules. The solo rules work well, although I think different types of troop definitely need different tables for what they do, rather than the generic one in the rulebook.

I'm working on some more Flintloque figures, so hope to be posting more game reports soon. On the other hand, there are also various figures for pirate and zombies games on my table right now, so we'll have to see what gets finished first!

  2. Fantastic and the mock comic work is spot on. You can of course get alternate solo tables for different troop types but don't ask me for Gingerbread specials! I look forward to more reports.

    1. Hi Gavin

      Are these alternative solo tables available somewhere? I've only ever seen the one in the rule book!

      Pleased you enjoyed the post.

  3. Great report, although I do think it could be 'gingered up' a little:)

    1. I had to look that phrase up... :)

      To be honest I occasionally get tired by the end of writing it all and then putting it on the blog... And sometimes it shows. I also think my choice of scenario wasn't as 'narrative friendly' as some of my other reports!

      But pleased you enjoyed it!

    1. Hi Simon. Good to hear. It is rapidly becoming my favourite way to report games, certainly when I'm not combining it with detailed rules or strategy references!

  5. Huh, gingerbread men go "urrrg!" I never suspected that :-) .

    In keeping with the fairytale theme, I think the Ferach need to field a hungry fox next time. That should sort out those pesky baked goods!

    1. Yeah, pleased I could share that little known fact with you!

      Humm. I must be able to get a 28mm fox from somewhere!
