Wargames Shows

Carronade 2015

Misc., Wargame Shows, Falkirk Here are a few pictures form the Falkirk show. My favourite game was the Vietnam one pictured above, but there were lots of nice games on display. this Sudan one from the Iron Brigade was a real work of art…The First Battle of S. Albans by (I think) Steve Rimmer from

Targe, 2014

Misc., Wargame Shows, Kirriemuir On my way to the AB1 game in Lundin Links, Fife I stopped off at Targe. This little show is a firm favourite on my calendar. Its held in Kirriemuir, in the county of Angus. I’m childish enough to get a kick every time I drive across the county line. There’s

Salute, 2014

Misc., Wargame Shows, London My camera was playing up at Salute (the batteries ran out and I couldn’t find replacements), so I only took a few pictures during the show. I even managed to miss some of the most spectacular display games, including a breathtaking D-Day table.Still, I managed to bump into old friends, made

Crisis 2013

Wargame Shows, Antwerp, Belgium This is a terrific show. if you get the opportunity to go then do. Officially I was going as the “support team” to the Edinburgh club, who were laying on a Dux Britanniorum participation game. In fact I’d buggered up my leg – I damaged my knee muscles jumping off the

Claymore 2013

Wargame Shows, Edinburgh Dave Imrie’s The eagle – based on the film… Winner of Best Demo Game On Saturday 3rd August I went along to Edinburgh College, where SESWC my Edinburgh wargames club were hosting Claymore, their annual wargames show. This is still the largest and most prestigious wargames show north of York. Like most

Deep Fried Lard, 2013

Misc., Wargame Shows, Musselburgh Saturday was “Lardy Day” in Musselburgh, just outside Edinburgh. A hall was hired, about six tables were set up, and around 40 games from all of Britain descended on the place. They were there to try their hand at games developed by The Too Fat Lardies, a wargame rules company run

Claymore 2012

Misc., Wargame Shows, Edinburgh The longest-running and probably the largest wargame show in Scotland is Claymore, run by the South-East Scotland Wargames Club. I spent a happy day at the show, serving at the front door, meeting old pals, touring the games and buying toys. Here are a few photos from the event, featuring a

Targe 2011

Misc., Wargame Shows, Kirriemuir I always enjoy going to Targe, the wee show in Kirriemuir, laid on by the “Kirrie” wargames club. Their head honcho Dale Smith has worked wonders in turning Targe into one of the must-see shows of the Scottish circuit, despite the fact that “Kirrie” is a two hour drive to the

Crisis 2011

Misc., Wargame Show, Antwerp  I’m not going to say much about this show except that it was terrific. The guys at the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp Club were fantastic, and not only laid on a great show, but were extremely hospitable too. The only downside was that the venue was pretty cramped (the show has

Partizan, 2011

Misc., Wargame Shows, Newark I didn’t get to the show this year, as I was stuck up in Orkney, but a group travelled south from Edinburgh, and Colin Jack sent me these pictures.My favourite by far is the Abyssinian Campaign game with the Italians facing hordes of spear-wielding locals, but the Zulu-looking colonial game looked
