Like Lard? You’ll LOVE Claymore!

There can be few North of the border who won’t be aware that Scotland’s premier wargames show, Claymore 2014, will be held on Saturday 2nd August, 2014, at the Granton Campus of Edinburgh College, 350 West Granton Road, Edinburgh EH5 1QE. Doors will open to the public at 10.00am for a great day of wargaming.
What you may not know is that there will be three Lardy games on display. Our good chum Richard of Monty’s Wargaming World will be running a participation game of Chain of Command featuring scenarios from his forthcoming Operation Winter Storm supplement (published next week!) while Glasgow’s Phoenix Wargames Club will be running a Dux Britanniarum demonstration game throughout the day. A real treat will be Mike Scott’s truly splendid Great War in Palestine set up for If the Lord Spares Us which is worth seeing if only to drool over his wonderful hand-built terrain.
More information about Claymore can be found on the South East Scotland Wargames Club website here: http://seswc.co.uk/2014/06/claymore-2014/
Local inter-web celebrity, leopard-tamer and TMP exile Derek Hodge will also be present, setting out tables, organising parking and unloading on Saturday morning, then acting as a table clearer at lunchtime, cover for breaks on the control desk before he then helps pack everything away at the end. If you see “Wee Derek” don’t forget to cheer him up by giving him the traditional Edinburgh greeting:
Hodge

A Small Diversion

After all of the hard work getting my Yanks ready for action, i thought we’d have a bit of a fun game with week at the club, just getting to know their strengths and weaknesses. As a result the scenario was a bit tongue-in-cheek, with both sides having their own objectives which weren’t mutually exclusive.

Patrol on the Ring Contour

One of the most interesting parts of designing a scenario or, by extension, a campaign, is the attempt to create balance which can allow both sides a (roughly) equal chance of victory. Often a simple way to do that is to “go vanilla” and keep everything quite bland. With Kampfgruppe von Luck we were faced
