Its been a while since my last Post, with work, family commitments and wargaming of course, has left little time for the blog, but as I was reminded by a wargames friend the other day I had nearly dropped off his page of bloggers, so thought would update with some of the items I've finished recently... as usual a rather ecclectic lot...



Most recently a 28mm US Infantry Platoon with supports and options for making into an Armoured Infantry Platoon for Chain of Command, 83 odd figures ready to roll...

3 28mm Union Command from Sash & Sabre I believe?

3 28mm Reb Command again Sash and Sabre?


1 28mm Dutch Napoleonic Gun and crew

 2 28mm British Napoleonic Foot Artillery Guns and crews



16 28mm US Cavalry Foundry figures



And Finally... 60 28mm Peasants with 6 man Command stand... why? I don't know another bargain on Ebay, rebased, just seemed like a good idea at the time!!



Just prepping for an ACW Battle using Picketts Charge rules, playing tomorrow, better start reading rules and getting it ready!?

Clotted Lard - Devon Wargames Group





The Devon Wargames Group have teamed up with the chaps at Too Fat Lardies to host our very own Lardy Day of gaming on what would be our normal club day, the 8th September.

The club members were early adopters of all things Lard and the historical gaming that the club promotes fits well with the Lardy theme of playing the period not the rules.

We have nine games confirmed so far with the possibility of a tenth, with games ranging across the periods including Chain of Command, Kiss Me Hardy, Augustus to Aurelian, Sharp Practice and I Aint Been Shot Mum.

A game of Sharply in the Buff played at this month's club meeting with Colin's superb collection of figures and terrain
Myself and Jason will be running a 28mm Sharp Practice Zulu game with yes Zulu's taking on the pride of Clarke's forces, the aim will be to run a game in the pre and post lunch period with some time in the afternoon to enjoy a Devon Cream Tea with real clotted cream and fresh jam.

The day will conclude with a gathering at a local hostelry followed by a curry in Exeter.

The club will be donating all, after expenses, monies to the veterans mental health charity Combat Stress.

If you fancy joining us for a day of great gaming in beautiful Devon with an authentic Devon Cream Tea to boot then there are a few places still available and can be booked at the email address mentioned above and where you can get more information about the games planned.
