Beer & Lard 2012

Post by EvilGinger » Sun Aug 26, 2012 3:54 pm

Beer & Lard

Saturday 13th of October
10am to 8pm

The Salvation Army Citadel
Mosley Street,
Burton upon Trent
Staffordshire.
DE14 1DR

A games day featuring the works of the Toofatlardies with participation demonstration games for many of them. It will be attended by the author, Richard Clarke, & several other notorious lardie personalties, including Sid who will be bringing his jaw dropingly wonderful world war one scenery & a mini campaign of linked small actions.

Will also Likely feature IABSM III, Dux Brittanarvm amongst others all figures & terrain provided along with on site tea coffee & biscuits with adjacent well stocked wargames shop, Spirit Games & several fine pubs, The Roebuck, Devonshire Arms & Coopers Tavern for after game discussions & a choice of really good beer to lubricate this.

All this will cost £3 on the day to cover the cost of the hall

going a little off topic but I would also be very happy to organise the same sort of event for Barry's equally fine products at an other time

Drop me a PM on that Barry but I like to promote & periods I like & rules sets I feel do them justice & it has the positive side effect of getting me more wargames than I would otherwise. I am also a member of at least two of the local wargames clubs Derby & Burton & can brother them to get involved.

In the American civil war with a pre release game of "Terrible Sharpe Sword" the period supplement for "Sharpe Practice"

Robert Avery author of Vis Bellica amongst other things ran three IABSM games over the day on from the defence of Calais, one In Burma & a final one on the breakout form Anzio all of which are on his VisLardica site but I am unable to locate then mostly because I cant remember the names of the scenarios

The final publicity drive for this has truly begun I will be over at Burton & district Wargames club in Stretton next week & Derby Wargames Society the following week.

The perfect chance to try new styles of game & new periods & have a lot of fun doing so not to mention the after party beers which it being Burton the beer capital of the world are worth it in themselves.
