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!
Very cool to discover somebody else using Crossfire in Africa. I thought i was the only one doing that.
Hi Steven, thanks for popping round. I’ve read and been inspired by many a Crossfire post on your website. Thanks for all your good work! I’ll see if I can return the favour by typing up our Crossfire modifications and scenario sometime. All the best!
