Looking for Article Contributions




So I have been thinking about this for a while.  In the past there were two of us posting on the 5th Column.  Over time due to study it has come down to me and me alone.  No issue there, stuff happens and life has a way of creeping up on you.  I'm sure Harley when he can, will still post from time to time, but I want to continue to grow the blog and take it further and I feel this can be done only with other like minded people.

So I am putting it out there to see if there are people who would like to contribute to the 5th column with gaming articles.

 I am open to pretty much any form of article, but will reserve the right to review and assess articles as required. If there is enough interest I am also thinking about setting up a new Blog with a proper 5th column URL rather than Wolf Templars which was a throw back to an earlier blog.

If you are interested in providing articles for 5th column please send me a private message on the 5th Column Facebook Page 

If you could note down the following:

What type of articles you would like to provide,
What game systems you play,
What frequency you can do it at.

Cheers

Absense makes the heart....something something something .... yeah I have been away for a bit!

Its been a while since last drinks and the reality is that with work study hobby and family..... and no those are not the order they operate in, I have had to cut back on blog posts.  Its been annoying as I was on a role there for a few months.  However life is what it is and I'm back for a bit to keep up the posting duties!

That being said, it does not mean that I have not been working away on models. This has mainly been to keep my sanity as I tackled study and work.  Lets just say that was a wake up call.  What I remembered to be the even and measured balance that was kept back in the day, well lets just say I remembered it differently. Either way I have come out the back end of first semester alive and my faculties  are intact.

The King is Dead long live the King !!!! War of the Roses Campaign Game 1

 
So the next series of games Berwick war-games club began this past Saturday. As mentioned earlier  War and the Roses was the theme of this next campaign, so we gathered to decided the fate of the Crown of England.  

The starting point of the campaign was first to decide which sides people would be on.  Ian, Peter and I declared for Lancaster, while Niel, Steve and Darren declared for York.

The final stand ! Final battle of our 1088 Campaign

 And so It came down to the final confrontation.  The North had risen up and was now marching south to expel the Normans from the land -  The Vikings had been given a deal - side with us and be paid gold for securing the Saxon crown so they had tuned mercenary and now march with the Anglo Saxons, and finally a Norman lord and his men had seen an opportunity to gain more land.

Confronting this was the strongest contingent of Normans yet and surprisingly also two southern  Saxon lords who had benefited from Norman rule (basically really bad blokes who where in on the gang of crooks running the country!)

5 commands a side this was the largest battle of the campaign and would settle who was victors!.... well till the War of the Roses where all the dodgy stuff would be bound to come up again :P
