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.




  1. Nice eye candy photos. I love the light wizard acolytes. Empire halberdiers are pretty awesome too. I trust you will have a few braziers to dump hot water (and ox tail soup)?

  2. Beautiful looking game, Erny!

  3. My Empire crossbowmen and dwarf cannon would like to come to the defence. :)
