After seeing the Hethwill Wargames video on Age of Penda, I decided it was a game system I needed to try out.
I read the rulebook, it is fast, simple, and looks to be brutally exciting! I’ve decided to run Age of Penda for Scenario 1 of the Campaign Carnival 2022.
I made a game board, as it is a Grid System, and made army lists with my 6mm Lizardmen and Beastmen armies.
The board itself is made with canvas boards, from an art supply shop (I got 6 of them on clearance!)
Step 1: draw grid pattern on graph paper, so I can measure the lines on the actual boards. The canvas boards are 16″ x 20″, the the final game play area is 32″ by 40″.
Step Two: Paint boards – they will dry fast in the sun!
Step 3: lay out the grid pattern
Step 4: build the grid on the other boards, based on the first
Step 5: label the sectors to match the set-up in Campaign Carnival Scenario 1
Step 6: army selection
Here is a short video of the set-up:
