Happy Easter !

A Happy Easter to you and yours!

Sunday 25 March 2018

Yesterday evening

This was the scene in the Kitchen last night. My 10 year old built in oven has been a tad fragile of late and last night the door suddenly fell to the floor shattering into 1000 pieces. Luckily no one was hurt.Careful clearing up took ages. I have ordered a new oven today which will be fitted on Easter Eve. Needless to say the Ducal war chest has taken a battering !

Defend Fife

I went this morning to see a plaque unveiled locally commemorating the role of the Polish Army and the Home Guard .
 The plaque is located by the side of a surviving ww2 concrete obstacle
The information plaque-
Defend Fife will be a big event this September with loads of vehicles,reenactments and even wargames. 


What would be the smallest sized force needed to give an interesting game using Bolt Action 2nd edition rules?

Defense of Fangorn- a portable wargame

Ents, Elves and others defend Fangorn Forest against Orcs,wolves and troll invaders;
Casualties have been already inflicted by Elven archers and rocks thrown by Ents.
Rules used "The Portable Wargame" and Maudlin Jack's Fantasy Variant. Great gridded fun with the final assault still to play...

Winter in medieval Tradgardland

A ski borne scout has a nasty surprise...

Meanwhile, near the border, another scout patrols through the snow ravaged landscape on his faithful elk.
