Wargame Shows


Broadside 2019 & The Battle of Killiecrankie 1689

Last Sunday saw the Rejects drive down to Sittingbourne for the Broadside Wargaming show. It was my turn to put on a game. After much deliberation (with myself) I chose to demo "The Battle of Killiecrankie"using Beneath the Lily Banners v3 The War of Three Kings.I painted up all the Scots a few years ago and recently finished off the last few Williamite regts.Postie was bitching that I didn't make bespoke terrain like he and Lee had for our last 2 Broadside game. I totally ignored him and used Posties normal gaming terrain that we use each week when we play. I've gotta admit to being very pleased with the results.Richard and Surj played the historical losers of the battle the Williamites.John and Dave played the Jacobites. With BigLee dipping in and out.I put in an optional rule of an initial bombardment. They threw a D6 and compared in to the chart 1=0 2,3=1 4,5=2 6=3. They threw a 3 giving them only 1 turn of artillery before the game started. They did manage to knock off 2 casualties on Locheils regt thoug

West Midlands Military Show 2019

After an early start, Sue and I arrived at The West Midlands Military Show around 8.45 and I proceeded to carry in all the bits for the display. Unlike last year when the snow had such an impact on the attendance, this year there were lots of customers waiting for the 10.00 entry.We had a great time at what I believe is one of the friendliest shows on the circuit and I was able to display both the new Pen & Sword book Wargames Terrain and Buildings The Napoleonic Wars which arrived with me yesterday and show off all of the models that feature in the book.For details of how you can order a copy at the introductory price of just £11.99 see this link. Please note that I am not selling this book via my Blog. If you want a copy please go to the Pen & Sword Web page.Sue took this photo of me with the very first copy.And here you can see Sue 'manning' the stand while I took time to browse the other exhibits and spend my pocket money.Here you can see the length of the table, showing models for sale, mode

IPMS Scale Model World just one week to go

Scale Model World, Telford is now just one week away. My intention is to visit on the Sunday - I have always found the Sunday to be a little quieter and with Sunday being the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 I think it will be special.Scale Model World (the main show of the International Plastic Modellers Society or IPMS) is reportedly the largest model show in the world. I tend to agree, plus it's a great day out.Full details can be found here.Tony
