DBA 15-19K Aztecs vs Spanish Pirates

Aztec Lads ready for a rumble....
A quiet Sunday afternoon in the humble Fazzy abode.  What better than a game of DBA.  Amy helped me set up the table in the back room for a monster DBACW game we've got planned, more on that soon as it will take a few sessions to play out.  As a reward, she picked out the armies for a small game that we played.  Aztecs vs Spanish Pirates.

Cortez is plundering the Aztec Kingdom, however Legendary Spanish Pirate 'la Pequeña Diablo Amy' has located an Aztec city ripe for plunder.  The Spanish Pirate Lads 'AAAaaaarrggh Ole' set off for a spot of plundering.  

Amy took the Pirates 'AAaaaarrgh' & yours truly the colourful Aztecs.   The Pirates 'Aaarrggh' would have a Galleon (firepower range 1000 paces) in their force.

The Battlefield
Colourful outfits abound in the Aztec Army..!
'Altogether....'
The Aztec plan was to draw in the Pirates & hit them in the flank..
Aztec Warband ready for the kill..
The Spanish Galleon
Amy launches her own flank attack.
That Pirate Artillery is exposed...
Bah pesky Amy....
The Aztec Warband evens the odds....
Savage hand to hand combat breaks out...
It's evens in the fight...
I try to maximise the Aztec attack....
Both sides struggle for PiPs to move the armies...
BOOM! go the Pirate guns...
BAH Lucky die rolls for Amy....
Cue the micky taking... 'ONE TO GO' cries 'la Pequeña Diablo Amy' 
Come on the Aztecs!!! 3-3
Nooooo! 
'la Pequeña Diablo Amy' reigns supreme.
One day I may get to master this DBA thing....

Great report! Love the Aztecs. I recently started painting 20mm Mayans from Caesar. And if you though Aztecs were colorful----whew!

As for the pirates, it occurs to me that if those guys had discovered oil they could have called it "Oil of Ole".

Helpfully yours,

Chris

I forgot to ask about the Aztec Temple--is it a paper model? Whatever it is, it looks great. I was in the Yucatan last Summer and passed up the chance to buy a model of a Mayan Temple. I began kicking myself shortly thereafter.

Oh well.

Best regards,
Chris

Yes mate, it's a card model purchased from a Chinese Seller on EBay. Apologies I can't remember the make though.

All the Best

I just found it today, for less than $10 U.S. (and free shipping to boot!) I hope it goes together well. I'm really pretty good at assembling plastic models (he said modestly), but when it comes to card models....not so much.

Thanks and best regards,

Chris
