A trip to join the Legion...

Today ,after an absence of many months , I finally returned to my local wargames club- Legion Wargamers who meet monthly in the local British Legion hall here in Dunfermline. A friendlier and more welcoming club you would be hard pressed to find. Yesterday members were playing Flames of War , Basic Impetvs and Command and Colours Napoleonic. Having been working with Minitanks of late the 15mm tanks looked tiny yet beautifully made. It was good to see Command &Colours in the flesh having read about it in blogs recently. High production values were evident and it looked a most interesting system. The other offering was one dear to my heart in terms of period- ancients, I have loved since boyhood trips to Hadrian's Wall and Airfix Romans v Ancient Britons! A game was being played in 28mm between Late Romans and Hairy barbarians. Beautiful figures and excellent vignettes due to the large 120mm frontage bases on display. I left resolved to paint at least one army ( 7 to 10 bases and eminently possible even for me) very very soon. Role on the next meeting on the 13th of March.


  1. It was good to see you at Legion Games and you are most welcome to come along in the future.

    Thanks for the compliments on the games as well, there was a goof mix yesterday and everybody enjoyed the afternoon's gaming, which is what it is all about really.



  2. Oops, sorry about the spelling there, I meant "a good mix"

  3. March 13 is an excellent day . . . it will be my lovely wife's 70th birthday and we shall be enjoying an evening out at a restaurant of her choice.

    So please enjoy your outing at the Legion, sir.
