Wednesday 24th June
Tonight was the culmination of the V.B.C.W double header.Guns that had been put on board a submarine heading for somewhere in Britain finally arrived at Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel prior to being shipped out to some needy customer or so that was the plan.
Participants this evening were-
Colin Jack- Buf
Dave o'Brien- Buf
Bart Zynda- Polish Anglican league
Mr Ray Neal- Connecticut Anglican league
Hugh Wilson-Nelson Colmon Harris-owner and dictator of Lundy
Donald Adamson-Submarine and landing party(all round scurvy knave).
The guns arrived off the north coast of the island but whilst they were being put ashore onto waiting carts the peace was shattered by a double invasion by factions also interested in some extra firepower.
The south of the island was invaded by two platoons of Buf infantry supported by a Beaverette armoured car whilst two platoons from the Anglican faction were landed on the east of the island.Both factions were hoping for easy pickings.It is true when they say that any battleplan only lasts until the first bullet.
An enjoyable game enjoyed by all participants with a brilliant ending.
Rules used were Bolt Action with some tinkering done by myself to accommodate six players.
All figures-Colin Jack
Boats-Hugh Wilson,Colin Jack and myself
Scratchbuilt submarine-Hugh Wilson(from model railway platforms and various food containers)
And of course the evening was made more enjoyable by a very nice curry before the game started provided once again by Lady Suzanne of Comiston.
More pictures will be added when I receive them from other participants as mine were taken from my iphone and it shows.Good photos courtesy of Dave o'Brien.
