A very big thank you to Steve and Andy for helping the Society bring home the trophy for the Best Demonstration game at the Partizan show on May 22nd.  The sheer amount of hard work that went into that game was impressive.

Also thanks to Tony for his hard work behind the scenes in providing the support materials that were so appreciated by the judges.  Thank you to the guys who helped in making the event such a success - Mike, Andy B, Malc, Mark, Andy S, Chris and John.

"Listen carefully I will say zis only once"!

Some pictures of a Cold War Commander game played recently at the club. The French belong to Rob, the Soviets are mine and the terrain my own and the clubs.

A close game but eventually a Soviet victory.

Meanwhile back at the ranch......

This is a K-Line Ranch House model kit I bought off Ebay an age ago.
Labelled as American "O" gauge (1/48 scale) kit from an old Marx mould, which is actually S gauge (1/64 scale).
the base is an old mdf placemat with the laminated picture picture peeled off. I have cut a thick card floor to bring the interior level with the bottom of the doors.
The basing has been done at the club to match the club's terrain boards.







The figure is from Copplestone Castings Future Wars range.
