This weeks game that I played at the SESWC on Thursday evening was a 28mm Very British Civil War (VBCW) game arranged by Colin Jack. This was actually our first chance to play the game that Colin and I displayed at the Albanich show in Dumfries in January.
John Glass and Dave Cooper commanded the Royalists and BUP respectively. Hugh Wilson and I commanded the outgunned Socialists and Anglican league. We used the Triumph and Tragedy rules which are simple and fun. They work well until you have raw militia facing opponents armed with machine guns and artillery. In this case both my raw socialist miners militia units broke on their first morale tests. Highlight was the bus full of screaming BUP militia which was riddled by AT and rilfe fire just before it burst thru the gate of the Anglican airfield. A full game report and photos will be on Angus Konstam's Edinburgh Wargames site. http://www.edinburghwargames.com/Journal%2056.htm
This weekend I am away for a large scale ECW game being held at the Lundin Links hotel in Fife. Yes it is out of period for this blog but there will be masses of lovely toys to enjoy.
