Mike T and Ross will be setting up another Command and Colours – Napoleonic game. This will be an epic scenario covering part of the Battle of Boridino. Epic games are best played with 3 or 4 per side so the more the merrier!

Club Night – Tuesday 16th July, 2013

Folks,

1st off a reminder that the British Legion have changed their hours – as such Wargames will be from 6 – 10pm

Plans for this week are as follows:

Tables 1, 2 & 3:

20130210-223017.jpg
Following on from last week we’re looking at putting on 3 or 4 scenarios using Games Workshops “Legends of the High Seas” ruleset. The group continued their “campaign” with these rules with rather mixed fortunes for some of the pirates involved. If you want to join  in the fun then just let us know.

The ruleset covers skirmish type engagements using a small band (5-10) of 28mm figures on a 4′ x 4′ table. Ideally these games are for 1 vs 1 with one side being the pirates and the other playing the local town guard / milita.

Club Night – Tuesday 11th June, 2013

Folks,

 

Last week Alastair, Mike R & Ross enjoyed an informative presentation by the Army Engagement Team @ the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen. The presentation outlined the current state of the Army in Scotland and the plans for the future. The Q & A session following the presentation was interesting covering topics such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, preparing regulars for civilian life (inlcuding adressing achohol abuse and ability to adjust to a slower pace of life), support available to families of both regulars and territorials and . They met with local members of the Army Training Corps, Territorial Army and Army Regulars who showed an interest in what we do at the club and had some interesting questions for us. All members managed to come away without accepting the Kings Shilling and will be back again this week!

 

In preperation for the next show (Targe 2013, November @ Kirriemuir) Mike T and Ross will begin to look at the clubs public participation game depicting “Operation Biting” better known as “The Bruneval Raid”. This raid was and early exapmle of Combined Operations between the British Airborne, Commandos, Air Force & Navy. The mission to capture a new type of German Radar system was a resounding sucsses and should make for an interesting game.

 

As per last week can members please let us know what their plans are by clicking on the voting buttons below:

 

 

Hope to see you all soon.

Baron Stuart von Tarvis will be taking along his Wings of War collection and is looking to have a dogfight or two. Will you master the skies with the flair and skill of Captain Flashheart or are you more of a Private Baldric?

 

Hope to see you all there.
