Monthly Gaming Sunday – 1st June, 2014

Folks,

We’ll be continuing with the Guadalcanal naval campaign again this month.

The situation on Guadalcanal still hangs in the balance despite some heavy losses on both sides over the previous months. The month will see the commanders making their decisions for October 1942.

Historically this was the month that the Japanese had their best, and last, chance to regain control of the island. Can Andy, Alistair & Mike Ritchie take control of Henderson airfield or will Mike T, John & Stuart S continue to build up their tenuous grip on the Island?

Hope to see you all there at the usual time 10am to 4pm(ish)

Club Night – Tuesday 27th May, 2014

Folks,

Plans for this week are much the same as last:

Table 1:
Mike T and John will be pitting their French and Italian 28mm WW2 forces against each other using Bolt Action skirmish rules by Warlord Games.

Table 2:
Mike R and Ross will be shivering some timbers as they continue their pirate escapades across the Spanish Main using Legends of the High Seas by Warhammer Historical.

This’ll still leave space for another game should anyone else fancy putting something on.

Also a reminder that this coming Sunday will be our regular Monthly Sunday gaming day – current plans are to continue with the Guadalcanal Naval campaign.

Hope to see you all there.

Folks,

 

Couple of games planned this week as follows:

 

Table 1:

Mike T & John will be pitting their  early war French and Italians against each other in a WW2 skirmish using the “Bolt Action” set if rules.

 

 

Table 2:

Mike R and Ross will be putting on a pirates scrap using the Legends of the High Seas rules.

 

Nothing else planned at the moment; however there will be space left if folks want to put on their own game.

 

Hope to see you all there.

Tonight will be the final run-through of the Battle of Voltri ahead of “Carronade” (the Falkirk wargames show) this Saturday.

As per the Monthly Sunday game, this evening will be held at Alistair’s house:
Clova Cottage

Plans will be to run-through the scenario one last time and then box up the terrain, troops and buildings for transportation to the show.

Hope to see you all there.
