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.
