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

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
