Today, for the first time in two and a half years, I attended a wargames show! Partizan, these days at the Newark Showground, is effectively my ‘local’ show being only a 40 or so minute drive away. It was good to meet up with friends, notably (and apologies if I’ve missed you): John, Tim, Russell, Diego, Simon, Tom, Graham, Phil, Chris K, Chris A, Mick, Mark, Kayte, Terry and Bob. And of course this was the first Partizan since the sad death of Duncan Macfarlane. He was much in my thoughts.
As always I was part of a team presenting a participation game. This year we had Tim C’s ‘1812’, which allowed a solo player to take the part of Napoleon and fight his Russian campaign in only ten minutes! The game was set on a lovely map and used some of Tim’s beautiful 1/300 H&R figures.
