Re: 16th/17th March 2013 Back of Beyond

Colin and Dave, are there any areas we need to be working on for this game? Any special requirements? I did some Indian type tribesmen-cum-mobs for the last game and seem to remember that somewhere in the deepest recesses of my lead Himalayas there are more half painted spear and sword armed locals ...

Re: Borodino weekend

It would be nice to say that the V Corps (Duchy of Warsaw Polish) troops were licking their wounds after a challenging combat but, if the truth be told, I too had the “anything but a 1 habit/lurgy” over the weekend and at least six battalions routed, not just without taking a casualty but also witho...

Re: Borodino weekend

I've had no response to the suggestion about meeting at the hall at 7.00pm. If there are no replies shortly I'll assume that we revert back to 8.00pm although it does sound as if we will need the extra time for setting up for Borodino. Who has a list of the players? I'll need to book the table in ad...

Re: Borodino weekend

I hope to have 11 btns x 36 Polish/Duchy of Warsaw together with some cavalry and artillery if the basing can be completed. French - lots of btns of 36 - some a bit dated now for our games but happy to supply 24 or more plus the Imperial Guard - let me know if you need them all. They are btns of 32....

Re: TARGE 2012 10th November, Kirriemuir

Thanks to everyone who supported TARGE 2012 and helped to make it the success it was. EVERY person who expressed an opinion to me on the day said how much they enjoyed the show and that is down to the hard work of club members in the lead up to the show and on the day of TARGE. However, to answer so...

Re: TARGE 2012 10th November, Kirriemuir

Thanks Bob. There's going to be a bit of drooling on Saturday then. I imagine some of the guys in Crann Tara are going to get a bit excited. See you at TARGE.

Dave O’Brien, yes Dave, this confirms that you are required on the judging panel.

I thought about an attachment but that would be stretching my skills too far.

Re: TARGE 2012 10th November, Kirriemuir

Darrell, if you go onto the TARGE section of Kirriemuir Wargames Club website you’ll find various traders and the Border Reivers club all from the NE of England will be trading/displaying at TARGE. It’s a long haul but, if you can gird your loins for the journey, we’ll be very happy to see you in Ki...

Re: LoGW history and roster

Get back there in line Hilton, and straighten that tie at once! Your records/photos/dates will be good enough for me. Peter, do you have a date for the WW II game? That would be a double confirmation. Barry, no-one, and I mean no-one is going to meet the Michael Anderson pie challenge and I don't wa...

Re: LoGW history and roster

The oracle will have to be consulted to establish which was the first event, not that it matters greatly. For oracle read diaries. I have a note in my diary from 2004 which also lists those who were there. Now all I have to do is find my diary! I still have many of my notes from the Dresden game. It...

Re: LoGW history and roster

Peter, the first meeting was in Kirriemuir in the Airlie Hotel and it came about as follows. Kirriemuir and District Wargames Society split in March 2004. Immediate action was taken to confirm contacts with some of the important clubs/groups in Scotland and the suggestion was made that a very large ...

Re: 15th/16th June 2013 Vietnam

Gentlemen, To clarify the situation about the hall, regular users of the hall have priority and I'm not happy to try to bump anyone else out. The first, second and last weekends of the month are not available and by coincidence I'm usually not available then either. The most regularly available week...

16th/17th November 2013 1690 or thereabouts

Barry is organising this one, I think. This is an area where there is a very large gap in my knowledge, along with all of the other gaps. The cavalry bought from David Imrie and Roger Donaldson at the last similar game were squirreled away in a file box and joined the wall of file boxes - we've all ...
