Deep Fried Lard Day Announced!

With 2013 being the year of the Lardies’ Four Capitals Tour we are very happy to announce the details of the third leg which is happening just outside Edinburgh in June. To be precise the luxurious surroundings of Musselburgh Rugby Club will be the setting for a day long feast of Lard on Saturday the 22nd of June. Starting at 10am and ending at 5pm we plan to run numerous games over a number of tables for our chums north of the border. Dux Britanniarum, Chain of Command, I Ain’t Been Shot Mum, Algernon Pulls it Off, Charlie Don’t Surf will all be on display and we are busy planning others, so do let us know what you fancy playing, or if you or your local club fancy running a game.
Both Richard Clarke and Nick Skinner will be running games as will a selection of local Lardies. Musselburgh Rugby club features a licensed bar and has a proud heritage in the official sport of Lard Island, Rugby Union. We hope there’ll be plenty of opportunity to talk all things Lard and have a few pints over an enjoyable day of gaming. After a fun filled day of games attendees will be invited to come along to Stagg’s Bar, winner of the Lothians’ Pub of the Year for 2012, and quite possibly on for a curry after that.
Cost should be about £5 a head, though this will be confirmed closer to the time – we’ll certainly try to keep this to a minimum. If you are interested in coming, or even better running a game on the day, you should contact our very own Entertainments Officer for Scotland, Derek Hodge, at Numbers will be limited so you should get in touch as soon as possible.
Edinburgh will be our third capital in 2013, with Crusade in Penarth near Cardiff in January, Salute in London in April and we have big plans for Belfast in August. So, come along and join us for a great day of gaming in Scotland in June.

Peter Pig M113 ACAV – A Review

Figure reviews are not something I normally do, but having just finished my first M113 ACAV platoon for Charlie Don’t Surf I feel inclined to put pen to paper, or at least fingers to keyboard, and talk about the Peter Pig model of this quintessential Vietnam AFV. I must first admit that I had planned

When talking about the Second World War to the man in the street, D-Day is often the image which springs to mind, especially if they have watched Saving Private Ryan and the incredible opening scenes on Omaha Beach. Those of us whose interest in all things military stretches beyond the causal will, if we are

On the Outskirts of Waldburg

After our first patrol action game the Soviets now had the opportunity to probe against the German outpost line. Their objective for this game was not to destroy the enemy, but simply to find a route past them. How difficult could that be? We began the game with the Soviets rolling for support and getting
