Carronade 2016 Part The Second

Winner of the best demo game was this splendid ECW game, Dave, Brian, Jack and Ian put on a superb spread here well deserving of the title. I will let the pictures speak for themselves...........

Other games that particularly caught my eye

The Glasgow Warhogs, Omaha Beach Game, this really captured the chaos I thought

SESWC's WWII Italian Front game, odd I thought for Colin to do something very mainstream, no it did of course have a twist, they are not Americans you can see but the Brazilian Expeditionary Force.
I am not a naval buff but this Russo-Japanese War naval game by The Border Reivers looked just the ticket
You have to love a Hellenistic pike block, Dumfries Wargames Club depiction of Chaeronea using To The Strongest Rules

Lastly the guys from Kirriemuir who never disappoint put on the Gaugamela, choosing only to do the Persian left wing and demonstrating that part of the battle in six phases over the day.
Well that's it for another year, apologies to those who's games I have not photographed, all were worthy of a shot or two but one has only so much time, hopefully pics will appear elsewhere of the other sterling efforts.
Many thanks to the guys who organise the show, I hope I can make the trip for Carronade 2017.

  4. Lovely looking games wish I had gone......especially love the two ancient games splendid😀

  5. Thank you for sharing these. The quality of these games is stunning. Hard pressed to pick a favourite but the Russo-Jap naval game is stellar. 1/600 scale ships? They look huge!
