Dux Britananiarum Wins Award at Crisis

A fat bloke receives the award from the Tin Soldiers hit squad

Here on Lard Island we have just about recovered from our fantastic weekend of gaming in Antwerp with the Tin Soldiers at what really is the premier wargaming event on our calendar. To top off a great day on Saturday Dux Britanniarum won the award for the best participation game of the show, a great honour in view of the consistently high calibre of the games present at Crisis.
This year was a huge leap for the lads at TSA who had taken the show from the old, much loved but somewhat small venue to a stunning large dockside hangar. It was clear just how much work had gone into moving the gig to the new location, with additional lighting and heating laid on. What was nice was that the building was an old structure full of character rather than one of the new soulless exhibition centres which are increasingly appearing on the circuit. The extra space allowed both more games and more traders, making this a real wargames-fest second only to Salute in size, but topping the league when it comes to the friendly welcome the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp provide.

Our thanks must go to all of the gamers who took part in the games during the day, without you chaps we wouldn’t have had so much fun. I must apologise to the chaps whom I promised a stack of photos. God alone knows what setting my camera was on, but all the snaps I took were soemwhat blurred (and no, it was not Delerium Tremens after Friday night on the town sampling Antwerp beers!), so thanks to Noddy for providing me with these few offerings.

French 1940 Army List for Chain of Command

Its been a hectic week on Lard Island and we aren’t quite where we wanted to be with our 1940 lists for France and the low countries. The good news is, however, that we have the French list available and the British list is nearly complete. With a bit of luck we hope to have

The Fat Bloke Continues with the Spanish Village

As we saw last time, the village was base coated and ready for a paint job.  I must admit that this was scaring me a bit as I had not fixed idea on what colour scheme I was going to use other than the obvious light walls and red roof.  The red roof was no

The Romans: A Tactical Guide

The ancient wargames I played in my youth were typified by a somewhat linear style of game where two armies deployed in line of battle and moved to engage an opponent similarly drawn up.  There were, of course, variations on a theme, but as a generalisation the ‘real deal’ was the fight between the opposing
