Over the past 2 weeks I have been getting back into wargaming. Last weekend I took part in a 12 player 2 day Hail Caesar game. I will write a separate report about that big game at a later date once I have got my Flickr account reorganised. I am recovering from a virus attack which wiped out my PC.
This Saturday I helped with the SESWC display game for Albanich the Wargames show in Dumfries. The display, figures and all the supporting material were from the collection of Colin Jack. It was a 28mm game of an action in the Russo-Japanese War. There was enough interest in the display to keep us from playing the game to a conclusion. Still lots of questions about Colin’s faux fur battle mat which I used for our AWI display at Albanich in 2012.

There seemed to be more traders as Albanich this year. It is a relatively small show but it definitely seemed busier this year than last year. It was great to speak to so many people at the show. Overall it was a good relaxing enjoyable day and I will be back next year.
On the Sunday another team of members from my club, the SESWC, put on a display at the Vikings Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Museum. Link to their report here.
