One or two club members may have noticed that I’m pretty excited by Tanks, the new WW2 armour skirmish game from Gale Force 9. I was one of the lucky ones who picked up a copy, and some extra tanks, at Salute a few weeks ago. I was so excited that, when our friends at Farnborough Wargames Society asked if we fancied running a game at Valhalla, their annual wargames show, I agreed. It’s been a few years since our club has been represented on the show circuit, so this seemed an obvious easy way back in.
The one downer was that this meant I would have to paint some minis. Only three though, so not too much of a shock to my system.
Here are a few pics from the demos I ran on 19th June. The Americans won out, blasting Barkmann out of Normandy five times out of seven. Barkmann only held the advance into France once, and there was one draw. I also chatted to a few guys about the club. With any luck, we might see one or two of them at a club night.
The scenery is a mix of the club’s trees and a ruin, and my 4Ground log cabins.
