28MM VBCW: THE ACTION AT ALNWICK

I got back into wargaming last week following our 3 weeks Christmas and New Year cat sitting for our daughter in London whilst she was away on her honeymoon.   It was a VBCW game 'The Action at Alnwick' using Bolt Action which Colin Jack set up in his wargames room.  Tim Wilson, Ray Neal, Dave O'Brien and Donald Adamson also took part.  Colin supplied the scenery and the bulk of the figures employed.

Planning to have the first game in my garage for over a year in 2 weeks time......

The cinema is an impressive model.

  4. Interesting to see you using Black Powder for this. What rules adaptations did you use please?

    Also your cinema appears to be showing a film made a few years *after* the VBCW :-D

    1. My mistake it was Bolt Action we used. Too used to playing BP.

      Oops - and yes the cinema is showing a film from WWII.
