Maybe of interest to wargamers of the Indian subcontinent? Panipat is a new film about the Maratha/Afghan battle in the 18th century. Afghanistan fans will see Ahmad Shah Abdali (founder of the Durrani Empire) in action. The trailer even features zamburak camel-mounted swivel guns!
Just heard that there’s a new fantastic addition to the Dark Alliance line of fantasy figures… MUMMIES! Just what I needed to fill the ranks of an mythological Egyptian army in Of Gods & Mortals.

I’m delighted to report that the East Neuk Irregulars won best public participation game at Claymore wargames show in Edinburgh at the weekend. We’re well chuffed!
It was a Rhodesian Bush War game featuring Rhodesian Light Infantry and Selous Scouts vs ZANLA irregulars, which we ran using a modified version of the Crossfire WWII rules by Arty Conliffe. We devised rules for K-car air support amongst other things. You can just see the Alouette K-car and G-car in the top piccy. Against all odds, ZANLA even managed to RPG them out of the sky on the odd occasion. Oh well, these things happen 🙂
There were only two of us able to be there to run the game, and as a result I almost lost my voice by lunchtime. Cooncil juice to the rescue!

How’s this for a special delivery service? A Mk IV Maxim on a quadricycle!?! It was invented in 1898 by British Inventor F. R. Simms. I could see this being a bit of fun in The Men Who Would Be Kings!
