MACE West 2017: Asheville Historical Wargamers!

The Ashville Historical Wargamers will be running a wide array of miniature war games.  They are on the OGRe where you can register for them.  You must be registered for MACE West to participate.  The games they are running include the following…

Friday 2:00p-6:00p

General Quarters 3 – Battle of the Komandorski Islands

The Japanese are attempting to resupply their garrison on Attu in the Aleutian Islands with most of the heavy units of the 5th Fleet. US Admiral “Soc” McMorris, commander of TF 16.6, has been ordered to intercept the Japanese. Faulty intel leads the Americans to think the convoy is lightly escorted.

Friday 7:00p-12:00p

Federation Commander – A base in need…

Early in the General War, the Federation tried desperately to build new bases to replace those destroyed during the Klingon assault. As Base Station 117 neared completion, a squadron of raiding Klingon cruisers swept in to destroy it as a hurriedly assembled Federation task force tries to defend it until reinforcements arrive.

Homebrewed WW-2 tank rules

Easy to learn, fast-paced and bloody!

Saturday 9:00a-1:00p

Muskets and Tomahawks – “Stay alive no matter what occurs!”

That might hard when the Iroquois charge into melee range. Join Chad for the French and Indian skirmish game. This ain’t no novel, being the Last of the Mohicans does NOT guarantee survival!

Fire As She Bears – Age of Sail naval action.

These are rules are very easy to learn and fast-playing but capture the feel fleet action in the Age of Sail.

Saturday 2:00p-6:00p

X-Wing Miniatures Game – Yavin Ground Assault

After the destruction of the Death Star, Imperial forces moved quickly to rout the Rebel base hidden on Yavin 4. As the rebels rush to evacuate their last transports, a force of Imperial AT-AT walkers advance to overrun the Rebel base. Can Imperial fighters protect the walkers from the hodgepodge of Rebel fighters trying to destroy them and buy time for the transport to escape or will the commander of the Imperial squadron be forced to apologize to Lord Vader in person.\

Home brewed – Pulp Movie miniatures

Time to make an 1930’s pulp action movie! One problem, we don’t have a script! No worries, we’ll just make it up as we go! This combination adventure/movie/roleplaying game is unlike anything you’ve played before. Take a hardy band of adventurers and try to become the star of the movie (i.e. make sure to do all the cool stuff in front of the camera crew!) Featuring rocket troops, gun-toting nuns, leopard men and whatever else Ed’s fertile imagination can produce.

Saturday 7:00p-12:00a

Check Your 6! WW1 – Death of the Red Baron. Who really killed the Red Baron? The answer could be “you”! This game will recreate Richthofen’s last battle using unofficial Check Your 6! WW1 rules. If you have the eagle eye, the aggressiveness and the quick reflexes you might give the Bloody Baron the choice no WW-1 pilot wants to face…Jump or Burn!

Guild Ball – Who says football season is over!

OK, this isn’t that kind of football. If you don’t want to wait for the World Cup give this a try. You think Great Britain versus Argentina was violent…you ain’t seen nothing!

Sunday 10:00a-1:00p
