I know it’s been a bit quite in terms of posts but I’ve not been completely idle. As well as more COW photos still to come there’s days two and three of the Golan Heights game, continuing from where we left off last year.
Here are a couple of photos to be going on with.

On Saturday morning I had a look at several sessions and stayed for a while watching Trebian’s Culloden game. I think you’ll agree that His Royal Highness Prince Charles (Jim Roche) gave an excellent wargames point while Lord George Murray (Nigel Drury) looks on despairingly.
In the evening Bob Cordery ran his very popular 'Carry on up the Nile' game. Players included notorious fellow-bloggers David C and Mark F.
John A running 'A Bridge too far.' Actually this was on Friday but he ran it again on Saturday.Phil Steele presented their impressive Battle of Edgcote game

It soon found one in the shape of Sgt. Nigel Drury's tank. Here the spider can be seen rummaging in the strangely shaped tin can for that last delicious morsel of Nigel.
When other humans approached more webs were deployed. Despite throwing in all the latest 1950s military technology things were looking bleak for the Earth.
M-41 Walker Bulldog of dubious origin!
The spider cost about £2 from eBay and is suitably scary - especially the red eyes!
The game was inspired by those dreadful old Science Fiction movies of the 1950’-1970’s. A meteorite hits the countryside somewhere and turns out to be the egg of a giant Spider. You are in command of an Army unit with a vital mission: kill it.... and save the Earth!
At COW I ran the game twice with three players each time. Two of the players each commanded three infantrymen (think of them as representing a squad or thereabouts) and a Jeep with MG. The third had a tank.
