The Guards Assault!
This evening saw a floor battle pitting a unit of the "Clothespin Guards" in an assault on a town complete with dragon's lair, several 90mm knights and a pair of huge "Transformers" locked in a battle royal with my son who defended a fort armed only with a "Nerf" gun. Despite three charges in assault column, the Guards took heavy casualties (and the dragon didn't fare so well either....). But given the heavy fire of my opponent, and the fact that the Transformers seemed to remain neutral, the outcome was never in doubt!
The "Nerf" gun worked well as a substitute for the more traditional 4.7 inch Naval Gun of "Little Wars" fame, though it's "laser" aiming device I think made the game a bit lopsided! The wooden clothespin soldiers did ok under fire only loosing a few rifles to Nerf hits...
