Prestonpans Wargames show - a wargaming soirée

On Saturday, I headed east for a new wargaming show from the Scottish Battlefields Trust

Not only was it based in the historic small East Lothian coastal town of Prestonpans, it was held in the most convivial surroundings of the Prestoungrange Gothenburg, or 'Goth' - a Grade II listed building with over 100 years of history. 

And most importantly, it is a bar, bistro and a micro-brewery!

Fun with livestock

On Monday I was involved with a bit of sheep rustling. Or maybe it was cows. Sometimes I get confused. And there were some unearthly noses coming from the pig pen. In amongst all the shouts of panicked alarm and gangs of villainous riders appearing out of the early morning mist.

Heavybraids' Lads

Rampaging Beastmen are back. And once gain it was the resolute Dwarves in the front line, readying axe and maul to stop the brutes from their bestial tyranny. Or more importantly, getting their paws on a sizeable hoard of gold and trinkets. 

With the long - too long - awaited final release of the Hammer and Forge Dwarf supplement and the Advanced rules from Ganesha Games, it was an evocative step back into the Battleshed's numerous encounters and campaigns in the world of Songs of Blades and Heroes.

A good day to game

Yesterday I was back for my second visit to Common Ground Games in Stirling. Being very impressed with this Gamers' Haven on the first visit, it was inevitable that I was back a few weeks later, this time armed with Sails of Glory. Sort of.

Contrails over the Pacific

This week I donned my flying helmet and grabbed some wet celery for a spot of Pacific theatre WWII Wings of War.
