Bovington 6-7 July

A weekend wargames show in the UK's premier tank museum - what's not to like?

Anyone going?

Anyone camping?

Not I. I'll be enjoying a proper bed, good company and fine dining elsewhere, but you carry on.

And a warm weekend was had by all :)

A couple of us got talked out of rocking Dags n Andy's van on Saturday morning (my missus came over all sensible despite the hangover lol) ........ which was a shame as Dags' pots of "lager" might have gone over and made interior conditions slightly more third world inside the Humberside Lovemobile..... :)

A few pics from a very warm and dry Bovington – red hot wargaming action and several beers. Met up with Dags, Duff and RedZed and bought two new periods (Drop Zone Commander and 1/200th ACW naval gaming).

A most impressive 54mm Hugomont:

A Cruch the Kaiser game, winner of the ‘Most Inventive Use of Ann Summers Products’ Award:

Battlegroup Overlord:

A Villers-Bocage game:

The Town With No Name western gunfight:

Deal Wargames Club with a Russo/Japanese game. Beautiful job on the dirty warehouse:

For ourselves, we had a 28mm War of Spanish Succession game which plans to work through a few of the Grant/Asquith Table Top Teasers. Very old school but fun. On this occasion we were graced with the presence of Ted, our terrain consultant:

Ted was most concerned to check both the quality of the war fur and the disposition of the troops:

A hard fought win for the attackers in both games:
