Below are some pictures from Claymore - which took place in Edinburgh today.
Here is the Small Hall
and the Main Hall
Let us selfishly start off by looking at the game put on by the Phoenix club - in conjunction with the Society of Ancients. The game was Magnesia.
The Phoenix club has a dedicated team of Tactica 2 players. This game is perhaps bigger than one they might play on a Tuesday night - but not by much!
Paul explains his embarrassment at only putting on a skirmish game
Billy makes some last minute adjustments
Have at it!
A forthcoming attraction is the new set of skirmish rules for the Dark Ages - Saga. These boys strongly connected to Gripping Beast.
The heart of the game seems to be the faction sheets. You need to roll the symbols to enact the ability/event
And the demo game itself
I was given a release date of early Sep for those. Apparently it is the special dice which are holding everything up!
GDWS had a great looking Sharp Practice game. Much looting.
I detected a more than usual number of renaissance games in the sample. There was an ECW game from East Kilbride.
Dunfermline had a 40K game
A non-GW SF game was one called City of Prosperity. I missed out on the hosts - could it be Antenociti? Mutants rather than zombies. Very popular participation game this.
Border Reivers had an AVBCW game - good use of industrial landscapes
I think the only C19th game of the day was a Crimea game from Tyneside
The only FoW game of the day was by Falkirk and District
RAF gamers were running their Great Escape game again.
Phoenix Club member George was having a lot better time than this pic might suggest.
If I was a guard at Stalag Luft, signage like this might make me suspicious!
Kirriemuir were running their Dark Age raiding game again
Durham brought us an Eastern European renaissance game in 40mm
Independent Wargames Brigade - all one of him [plus family] brought a distinctive Chinese game
There was a second AVBCW game - I missed the production team behind this one
A second game I failed to note the ownership of was a Battle of the Nile game
The other ECW game of the day was by Iron Brigade. Some lovely details on this one.
The League of Augsberg pulled their usual trick of bodging together some terrain at the last minute :)
Personal damage for the day wasn't too bad. A copy of the BP supplement - Last Argument of Kings and a copy of the Force on Force supplement for Afghanistan.
Thanks to SESWC for the show and all the clubs and traders for making it an enjoyable day out!
