Variety is the Spice of Life

I have had a good start to the year playing a variety of games, namely:
Check Your 6!
Piquet Band of Brothers
Force on Force (twice)
Sword and Spear
Arc of Fire
Necromunda (twice)
Irregular Wars: Conflict at the World’s End
Lion Rampant
Legions of Battle
Muskets and Tomahawks
Wings of Glory
Lord of the Rings
The Gattling’s Jammed
Washington Club WW2 naval
Sixteen games is a bit behind the pace if I am going to hit the target of 100 in the year but the most important thing is that I am getting an awful lot of fun from my games.
The highlight of the year so far had to be on Saturday at the Albanich show in Dumfries.  The Falkirk club put on an Indian Mutiny game and I was one of the leaders of the ‘Freedom Fighters’, defending a couple of villages against the Imperialists.  Throwing caution to the winds I threw the tribal levies forward on the left flank and, despite taking horrific casualties, managed to break a brigade of Ghurkhas.  Great fun and we were pleasantly surprised to win ‘Best in Show’ for the game
