    Once again the team based highlight of the global ADLG year comes around, with yet another trip to the tile-clad temperate oasis of sardines and port, Lisbon !

    After a stunning bout of mid table mediocrity last year, the same 4-person Anglo-Irish team had been reassembled for another go at joining in the 100-strong contingent of ADLG players from around the world all congregating in Lisbon’s Military Museum on the banks of the Mighty Tagus for the second September in a row – although this time we had shuffled the pack a little and all 4 of us had swapped themes around.

    This saw me occupy the Dark Ages & Early Feudal slot, allowing me to use Feudal Anglo-Irish, featuring a load of figures that had’t really been put on table before, but most importantly was the only Anglo-Irish list available!

    Read on to find out how this eclectic collection of Norman feudal knights, javelin-throwing Irish Kerns, English colonist yeomen with spears and longbows, Ostmen descended from Viking stock, and an allied contingent of axe-weilding Irish warriers fared in all 5 games from Lisbon 2023

    You will find all the usual nonsense, as well as unique post-match commentary from Hannibal and the Anglo Irish Commander, who turns out to have been a rather strange hybrid of the very Irish Father Jack (from Father Ted) and the very English Jeeves (of PG Wodehouse fame).

    I loved that Stranglers reference, one of my fav bands from back-in-the-day!

    You had a fantastic outing with great results, even if there were some close ones.  I think it’s great that you can have such an enjoyable trip to such a nice place, and get some games in to boot.
