TARGE 2016.

Saturday 12 November 2016 saw my annual trip to Targe, Kirriemuir Wargames Club's show. As well as the traditional lunch at The Thrums, I had a good time at the show.

I only had one 'need', which was a Skirmish case from Figures in Comfort, for my Broken Legions and En Garde! forces. I did pick up a few other things, which I might share in a separate post. To the tables:
Germany 1945 game, using Fireball Forward rules. 

A wider view of the table.

A view from the US lines.

Fictional Honours of War game by Oldmeldrum Wargames Group.

Glasgow Games Group and Hawk Wargames had a Dropship Commander game.

And a Dropfleet Commander game.
The Iron Brigade presented a demonstration game of York 1641.

A wider view of the table.

Detail of 'York'.
East Neuk club put on a participation game set in the Borneo jungle during the Malaya Emergency.

Another view showing the Commando Miniatures figures used.

Commands and Colors Ancients using Hexxon tiles and 15mm figures. C& C Napoleonics in the background. Dunfermline Wargames Club.
A Congo participation game.

Russians v Afghans 1980s. I think Northumbrian Painting Service were running this.

Ancient Greeks on the attack in 15mm.

Middle Earth game using War of the Ring rules.

Another view of the battle. If I remember correctly it was the defence of the Westfold.

Indian Mutiny game of Sharp Practice, by SESWC.

Omaha Beach by Glasgow Warhog.

A closer view of the beach defences.
I did take shots of other tables, but these were of too poor quality to post.

Throughout the day I manged to talk to few traders and fellow gamers. I had my eye on a few things in the Bring and Buy, but ended up with a bargain DBA Hungarian army for £10. All in all a good day. Lovely shirt sleeve weather. Very un-seasonal for Scotland in November!
