This Saturday I went to Forfar to attend SKELP the Angus Wargames Club’s annual show. Skelp is one of the smaller wargames shows in Scotland however it has all you expect from a show - demonstration and public participation games, trade stands, a painting competition (with trophies and prizes), a bring and buy sale, raffle, and Field Kitchen. The Field Kitchen serves the local delicacy the famous Forfar Bridies but they ran out just after noon.
I helped Colin Jack, Mr Ray Neal, Dave O’Brien and Hugh Wilson with the SESWC display game which was a Bolt Action game set in the Chaco War between Paraguay and Bolivia. Colin does keep finding obscure subjects for our display games.

RAF Leuchars Wargames Club put on their superb carrier attack PP game. Deservedly it won the trophy for the best PP game and the trophy for best naval game.

My other club Falkirk and District Wargames Club put on a PP game – A Lost World Adventure with explorers, angry natives, a hidden temple and the mandatory dinosaur! It was judged 2nd best PP game.

It was a good enjoyable day meeting fellow enthusiasts. My purchases were limited as I only bought 2 sets of Litko counters from Erik at Figures in Comfort. They will prove really useful in my Ironclad naval games.
