Well as I type it’s only 5 weeks to Crusade 2014 our annual wargames show. It’s approaching fast and will be with us sooner than you think. Crusade 2014 will again be a great time to welcome Traders, gamers and visitors alike to a show we are very proud of. So book yourself out for the 25th January and come down and say hello.
My how time flies. Already another year and another Taffs Well saturday wargaming. yes even though Crusade is looming in 8 days time the wargames go on. So what is lined up for this month’s Taffs Well saturdy games?
15mm Napoleonics Wargame
First up and one of the main events is a 15mm Napoleonics Shako battle. set in 1806 the game will be French v Prussians/Saxons. Thanks to Mark Armstrong. Drop him a line on our Yahoo group or Facebook Page if you fancy a fight!
15mm Greece Shako
A bit different here and at the moment not 100% definite. But, Ian is looking at a second Shako game. Again set in 1806 the scenario is in Greece and is Turks v Anglo-Russian forces. Basically a fictional land based version of the naval campaign. Now there’s a challenge for you.
28mm Hundred Years War
Nick on the otherhand is upping the scale and using pointy sticks instead. So it will be time to roll out the French tin cans on horses and turn them into pin cushions of the arrow attracting kind. It should be a very colourful battle and good fun.
The rules are going to War and Conquest from Scarab Miniatures who will be a trader at Crusade 2014. Rob Broom will also be doing a Samurai Demonstration game so it’s a good chance to play and then bombard him with questions next week
Cor Blimey! Love a duck me ole cock sparra and all that jazz this coming Sunday. It’s Ian’s Streets of London extravaganza. So it’s time to break out dodgy accents and even dodgier cliches for this great gang based game. Come down to Penarth on Saturday 4th Jan 2014 to join in
Victoria is on the throne and deep in Whitechapel their is a power struggle. Rival gangs compete with each other to control the streets and crime empires they have built. You are those gangs
The Scene For Penarth On Saturday
Fear is stalking the streets. Ladies of ill repute and loose morals are turning up brutally murdered. This concerns the gang leaders. least of all it means serious loss of trade and it puts off the punters. The Peelers are proving inept and next to useless at stopping the violence and your other income streams.
You Are In Charge
Come along and be one of the gang leaders. Build your gang and take to the Streets Of Whitechapel. It’s not just about fighting though. You might have to complete other on board scenarios and missions as well. Ian is keeping us guessing over this as well as who else might make an appearance in the area.
Will naughty Jack stalk your every move?
Can you trust your own gang members?
What is that dark shape behind you in the smog?
Will you draw the attention of the greatest dectective of the era?
So come along throw yourself in and lets have some fun
Not only But Also
Of course as with most Saturday meetings at Penarth Wargames there is more going on. Glyn is going to be running a large Shako Napoleonic game if you are interested. No format or scenario details as yet but will update you when I do
