15mm Elves vs Barbarians - One Hour Wargames

I put on a fantasy demo of One Hour Wargames. Using 15mm Wood Elves and Barbarians. Both forces met at a small farming village. The ensuing battle was bloody for both sides with the Barbarians prevailing and holding the farms and main road through the village.  The game was fairly quick, it only lasted 12 turns.  One Hour Wargames is still the best set of rules I've purchased in years.

Elven Archers on their chariots take aim at the barbarian line.

Both sides move closer.

Taunting is fierce with the barbarians waving and dangling their genitals at the elves.

Final outcome with the Barbarians in control.

You are such a tease. Any chance you could give us a little more info? I'm assuming you're using Neil Thomas' One Hour Wargames? If so, did you go with Medieval or Dark Age rules, and how did you mix in a little fantasy?

Hi Warren, Yes on Neil Thomas. I have found my "home" with his rules. The fantasy rules are some that I've adapted from a combo of his rules in his book "One Hour Wargames." If you see the links at left under Warhammer you will see some examples of what I've done with his rules so far. This game was just a quick intro for my family and we played it that knights were +2 vs foot and that the elf chariot shooters were +2 vs all in shooting only. It played out quick and was much fun.
