Just a very brief update in this post to let people know that Richard Clarke, myself and another six members of the TooFatLardies club (Harpers, Biffo, Alan, Trev, Elton and Noddy) are making the trip to the beautiful city of Antwerp on Friday for the Crisis 2012 show held on Saturday, 3rd November and hosted by the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp.
This has been one of the highlights of my wargaming year since 2009 and is always a great show, bringing the very best of European wargaming together in one place. Added to this hobby incentive is the city of Antwerp itself, surely one of the most attractive of North European cities and always very welcoming.
We're taking a participation game of Dux Britanniarum, which will (I think) be Saxon sea raiders against Sub-Roman British defenders. As ever, anyone is more than welcome to join in the game - but also, as ever, it’s the chance to meet old friends and new which is the real highlight of the trip.
Here's some photos from the last few years, together with some pictures of the old town of Antwerp, all of which bring back some terrific memories. Look forward to seeing a few of you this weekend!
