The Wargaming Table (1) : Bocage on a budget

At the end of November our local club will have another "longest night" event, and this time in Normandy 1944. Ahead of the incoming game, I thought of working some bocage scenery. I wanted it easy, cheap and effective so I started improvising with materials at hand in my garage. An the final result was (IMHO) more than very decent.

Here I show some photograhs

African Mud & Blood

Yesterday our local club held the second "longest night" event this year. This time our Lardies "gruppies" moved to the Dark Continent and played a I WW a game in Africa with "Mud and Blood". Unfortunately I did not participate (a family engament prevented me from playing) but I think the quality of the display is worth sharing the photos with you. I hope you like them. I will try to get detailes of the scenario and blog them in the near future.

Book recommendation: Horse Soldiers

Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of Us Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan

A book recommendation is an unusual post in my blog, but I think this one is defintely worthwhile recommnending.

Attack on an Entrenched Position

Taking advantage of a national holiday in Spain, we met this morning in our local club to play Scenario Six of  Stout Hearts,  the excellent companion book to Richard Clarke's Mud & Blood First World War rules set. Recently one of our club's mates have joined our little group of I WW aficionados and I thought this scenario was a good way of getting him introduced to the system.
