This Saturday I went to Carronade 2017 at Falkirk.

Tim Watson had put together the SESWC display - a 28mm Bolt Action WWII game of the German  invasion of a fictional Greek Island in 1941.  Any similarity to Crete was completely deliberate.  Ray Neal, Colin Jack, Bill Millar and I supported Tim at the display.  We played the game for real and got to a marginal axis victory or so the Axis players claimed.

Detailed report on the game from Tim on his blog at
It was a good show – met lots of acquaintances.  I bought more 28mm AWI patriot figures at the Flea Market, some Spanish Napoleonic skirmishers from Eagle Miniatures and lots of useful mdf from Martin at Warbases.  Now I can get all my new ACW artillery and transport based up.
Next weekend we are at Partizan at Newark displaying a game set in 1860's Japan.  Here are some of my photos from Carronade.
