A Writtle Bit of Lard – Lardies Day at Essex Warriors

Instead of our traditional Open Day this year Essex Warriors are putting on A Writtle Bit Of Lard, a day long extravaganza of games using Two Fat Lardies rules.

Games will be presented by Essex Warriors and guests from other clubs. The gathering will be graced by the presence of Mr Richard Clarke of the Two Fat Lardies.

The event will take place from 9:30 am to 5 pm on Sunday 30th September at Writtle Village Hall 18, The Green, Writtle CM1 3DU (free parking in the Village Car Park). Admission to the event will be free. *

This year there will be no Bring and Buy but attendees are free to bring wargaming items for sale on their own account. Free teas and coffees will be provided but there will be no formal canteen.

*Edit: When this event was originally announced  on 11th June, it was planned that admission would cost £3. However, Essex Warriors Committee have since agreed to change the event to a free one. Intending players will still have to book their place though. See next post for details.

Essex Warriors at Salute 2017

The Essex Warriors ‘Battle of Prague’ game at Salute was very well received with loads of pictures and even videos taken so watch out for coverage online and in the wargaming press.

Many thanks to Rafael for organising the game and to Allan, Jason, Peter G & Les for their help in playing the game and talking to spectators all day. Also thanks to the other Warriors who dropped in on the day to lend their  support and give the main team a break.

We certainly reached a world wide audience this year with two residents of Prague who are actually re-fighting the battle on the battlefield in a couple of weeks time being very impressed. We also had visitors from Australia, Spain, USA, Colombia, France and the Netherlands to name but a few.

Essex Warriors at SELWG

Many thanks to Les, Richard and Andrew for organising the game, figures and terrain for SELWG this year. Also thanks to Peter, Jason and Richard for their help running the game on the day.

The game  was well received and everyone had a good time.
