BOYL 2024: The Siege of Altdorf

I love siege games and it has been 10 years since the last big siege at BOYL, many lessons were learnt from that game and so this year I'm going to be putting on a big game all Saturday on one of the big tables. One of the lessons learnt was that bring whatever you like and chuck it at the table doesn’t work so much for a siege game. we ended up with a large field battle in front of the city walls with wood elves and tree men doing most of the heavy lifting.

I'm going to be working out rough points values using 3rd ed BOB and to some extent Armies. Nicely divided into commands for you to use.  I will be using mainly late 80's to mid 90's miniatures but anything cool and in style gets to be included. I'll be posting more about them over the next few months.

If you’re interested let me know. Most of my stuff in in storage after a recent move but I put together a few photos to wet your appetite.

Happy New Bear or Bearly legal furry fun!



I've had these guys up my sleeve for I dfo't know how long. Keep meaning to post. The tiele is accurate, one m ore bear or one fewer handler and thes would be an illegal unit. That said with two more handelers there could be 24 bears not 12.

Still 12 bears is considerable furry fun. Bears are entry tier over 10 foot tall entities in 3rd ed, Much like other lower tier 10 footers they should be on 25 x 25 bases but unlike others that migrated onto 40 x 40 these migrated to cavarly bases. Just goes to show nothing is written in stone in 3rd. I've yet to use them in anger.
