has been another busy week for varied
games. On Monday I took my pirate ships
to Falkirk Wargames Club and Dave Paterson and I tried out the rules further
using the English and Pirates. I have
spent sometime since then building more ships to expand each of my 6 factions
to at least 13 ships each.
Wednesday evening I went to Dave Paterson’s shed for a game of Dead Man’s
Hand. We played out the second set of scenes
from the new campaign book The Legend of Dead Man’s Hand. Sadly my Sheriff who was at deaths door at
the end of the first set of scenes did not recover from his wounds leaving my
gang with 4.5 points of reputation at the start of scene 2.

was at the SESWC on Thursday where Colin Jack, Ray Neal, Angus Konstam and Tim
Wilson and I played a 28mm Bolt Action game set in Syria in 1941. My highlight was when my Moroccan squad
assaulted and destroyed a British Crossley armoured car. Next turn they tried to assault an Australian
held building but were wiped out. The
game ended as a draw.

on Saturday Colin Jack and Ray Neal came to my garage to try the setup for our
display at the Cùil Lodair Wargames Fair being held at Culloden Battlefield
Visitor Centre on 11 October. Since
there will be numbers of historic Culloden Games our Culloden is set in 1938 as
a VBCW game. More to follow after the
