It was a hot day and the room was quite stuffy. Despite this We managed to get two games of the attack on Akaba in. The Arabs won the first game and the Turks won the second game so it seems quite a balanced game which is what toy want I think from a game point of view even if it is not reproducing History exactly.
Anyway here are some Photos of the games in general before my camera packed up. Strangely it works again now I have got it home. Ho Hum such is my affinity to technology, Thank goodness I am not a Borg!
|Gravesend Wargames Club,|
2nd Afghan War
Won a Prize for the best painted figures.
Won a Prise for Best Game from the Publics point of view.
|Magnificent 7 Game in 54mm|
Won a prise for the best use of space.
So Congrats to the Clubs who won. And Commiserations to the rest of us! I am not bitter, No not at all. (And only a little jealous!)
Some of the other games I personally liked were:
|A wild west skirmish using Dead mans Hand rules, |
Sorry I don't recall the club!
|Maidstone Wargames Club|
28mm WW1 Skirmish
(I can't help thinking this board would
make a great Victorian Gothic horror Game!)
|Deal Wargames Club|
My personal favourite game.
a 15mm Vietnam game.
|Worth noting these river vessels are no longer available |
but I think they were produced by "the Scene" Back in the day.
20mm Vietnam Riverine craft can be sourced by a number of companies
but I would struggle to find any 15mm ones these days.
I will leave the Arab Revolt game for now as I am expecting another club member to send me some shots. I am sure the following bloggers will put some up soon though.
