I travelled down with Neil and Rick. After booking in my stuff for the bring and buy, we had a quick look round. I picked up some figures from Kenny at http://www.mutineer-miniatures.org.uk/ which I had ordered, even though they did not have a stand at the show. Great service! I got my mandatory shopping from www.crooked-dice.co.uk/wp/product-category/miniatures . I also bought some 28mm figures for charity http://jjs413-thegen.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/doing-my-bit-at-targe.html.
After this, we decided that we would have a go at some of the participation games.Whilst waiting to let Neil & Rick have a go at the Leuchars Veterans 'Operation Chastise' game, spaces came up at a participation game of Chain Of Command, so we had a go at that instead. The scenario was Expanding the Mushkova Bridgehead from 1942.

|Early in the game, from the German perspective. The section that I am in charge of is readying itself to fight a Russian section beside the church, on the left.|
|Mid game. Lots of fire fights and a German advance on the right.|
|End game. German breakthrough on the right.|
Neil & Rick had a go at a participation game by the Angus Wargames Club showcasing Operation Cerebus, the Channel Dash.

All in all a good show.
