17th/18th NOVEMBER 2012

Borodino - now this is a real battle. Barry and Dave will have a field day with this one with the other Napoleonic buffs becoming damp with anticipation. There are some nations/corps to work on but all will be done. Look out for thousands of troops on both sides with lead laden tables groaning benea...

16th/17th June 2012 - E.C.W.

The June game in 2012 is being run by Charles and Adrian. The British Civil War, sometimes known as the English Civil War, has a wealth of battles to choose from, I'm told, with combatants from all four home nations and maybe even beyond. This is another period I know nothing about but I did hear Co...

17th/18th MARCH 2012 - WILD WEST

Colin and Peter N are sorting out a weekend of gunslinging, pistol whipping and other Wild West pleasantries.

The round robin of paired games worked well some years ago but we'll have to wait and see what the organisers have in store for us.

NOVEMBER 19th/20th 2011 Vietnam

Vietnam. Peter N and Colin are running the Vietnam game in November in Kirriemuir, probably using the Disposable Heroes supplement The Long Road South. This is a new period for the LoGW but it will be done with the same aplomb as any other period. Look out for riverboats, a cave and Purple Haze from...

Re: The Alma - June 18th - 19th 2011

Well Alma was worth the wait. Solid ranks of multitudinous Russians stood resolutely against the cream of the British army. What am I talking about. The idle British seemed to be stopping for tiffin on the hour, every hour whilst the real work was done by the brave sons of France. Every French batta...

Re: The Alma - June 18th - 19th 2011

Gentlemen,

Bob has everything ready to go for the Alma battle and we plan to meet at the hall from 6.30. As many hands as possible required for a big table.

See you on Friday guys.

Cheers

Hi Bob, please count my head in - just the one of them! I've watched your "baby" grow over the years and know this can't be missed.

An excellent weekend. As mentioned in the very brief debriefing, I think we found (or Barry found) the right level to play Disposable heroes at. With the much larger numbers on each side on our lastDH game eveyone had long spells of inactivity between shotties. With one or two players on each side o...

Bob, I'll bring my latex roads and the resin ones too. To clarify something from an earlier post, Dave Tulloch is not available but Steve Rimmer can fill in for the Chas and Chas mobile extravaganza on Sunday if everyone is OK with that. I've just collected the menu from the Airlie and the prices ha...

Thanks Barry. I’ll leave the Alps at home then. This is the third time I’ve written this and attempted to send. My computer crashed last night and my works one today. I should stay away from them! We haven’t posted a time for meeting on Friday so I’m going to suggest 8.00pm. With grandchildren stayi...

Operation locate Kenn Hart

This is a long shot I know, but I'd like to get in touch with old pal Kenn Hart. I lost touch with Kenn about 10 years ago. Kenn was an ancients player, a contributor to Slingshot and for many years a great ambassador for the Solo Wargames Association. I think he is in Yorkshire somewhere. Someone e...
