It's not just a job, it's an adventure!

My Bretonnians had a bit of a brush-up with Admiral Dave's Empire fleet this weekend. The Bretonnians started out with a fire in their bellies, but unfortunately, they drank a lot of wine prior to the engagement and wound up putting those fires out.

Buccaneers make great shields, but they did not do a good job aiming with their catapults - a lot of ones were rolled this game (which is typical of me, so why be surprised?)

The Empire won the day, and the remainder of the Bretonnian fleet sailed back to their home port to grumble and pout.

To war!

Both fleets maintain formation

The Bretonnians split into two groups, and a Buccaneer is rammed

An entire squadron of Buccaneers is lost to boarding actions

The Bretonnians attempt to get into position for broadsides

Too much wine and not enough gunnery practice...
I also got in a game of Necromunda with Matt Alix of The Nerdherders Podcast. I made it to the beginning of turn three and failed my bottle test. The less said about that game, the better... Poor guy drives almost three hours to game with us and gets me for an opponent - what a deal!
