Its November and that means Taff’s Well Mega Weekend for Penarth and District Wargames Society. Three days of wargames of all sorts. Three days spent with friends and socialising as appropriate. Of course you don’t have to sleep over, just be there.
This November we are priviledged to welcome Wessex Wargames Society. Headed up by Chairman Kev Smith, a Penarth Member who has re-located down south. They will be up on the Friday for the usual games and Taffs Well Inn essentials
So What’s On At Taff’s Well Weekend?
Series of simple easy games that can be picked up and put down
Wing Of War (Or Wings Of Glory if you prefer) kindly put on by Jock
1/2400 World War Two Naval by Ian. This will be a North Sea scenario centered around Narvik or Trondheim. This game will also go into Saturday as well.

Saturday 23rd November (All Day)
Fields Of Glory 15mm (Thanks to Damien from Donnington Miniatures)
15mm Shako Napoleonic
28mm Bolt Action World War Two 1944
Sunday 24th November
What we do here will depend on the action from Saturday. Obviously our friends from Wessex will want to get back at some point but its likely we will carry on with at least one of the games from Saturday.
So there is plenty to do so come along to the Taff’s Well venue for Penarth Wargames. Even if you can only spend a few hours spend them with us going bang, You won’t regret it
Yes its the first installment on the Penarth Christmas game for 2013. This year it’s set for 7th December 2013 down at Glyndwr Hall. Westy is taking on the challenge and organising everything for this extravaganza (No pressure mate).
So what can we expect. Well the latest out of the Rumour Mill is that its a 28mm Bolt Action World War Two game. A lot of you are already familiar with these rules so hopefully we can whizz through play. At the moment its looking like the drive on the Dutch ports but yet to be confirmed. Probably a mini-campaign or series of linked scenarios with consequences for victory or loss.
Hopefully everyone who is contributing forces knows who they are now and will be painting furiously, including myself. I hope to be posting first pictures and WIP’s on Warpaint Figures shortly as not many weeks to go!!
So get along on the day and have some fun. It should be a good one. Watch this site or visit and like our Facebook page for any updates on the Penarth Christmas Game
Welcome to the Penarth Saturday Wargames briefing. To bring you the low down on what’s happening for 2nd November 2013. Well I am pleased to say that we have another mega Napoleonic Battle again the last one was great fun and with more people getting the rules this promises to be better. At least 4-6 Corps of troops and 8 tables!
Its 1812 and Napoleon continues with his advance into the heart of Russia. Striking towards the prize of Moscow with a strategy to destroy the Russian army in the field. But they remain elusive surrendering time and ground and retreating before the French army like shadows. but all is not well. The commander Barclay De Tolley, especially as a foreigner is not popular. His strategy of retreat is seen as cowardice by many. Eventually he is forced to step aside in favour of the more agressive Prince Bagration
Not wanting to surrender Smolensk he turns suddenly to fight the scattered French. can he pull of the victory the Tzar so demands or will napoleon pull together his Corps too fast and cruch the green hordes. Come along and find out.
