Apologies to everyone who has been missing their regular dose of P.B.Eye candy.  It has been a very busy spring for me … Everything from working on the big ECW reenactment event at Naseby in the Summer (Naseby 370) to running my Harfleur game at Salute (SoA at Salute) …

But I have been taking an interest, and here are some splendid 20th Century exhibits from the big show …

Salute 2015 16(Salute: the Battle of St Vith)

Salute 2015 17(Paul T running a Bolt Action Pegasus Bridge game)

Salute 2015 18(Rob running the new PBI game ‘PBI Company Commander’)

Salute 2015 19(detail)

Salute 2015 20(20mm action from Batlegroup Blitzkrieg)

Salute 2015 21(Peterborough’s elaborate Dambusters challenge)

Salute 2015 22(Great War: the Turkish lines at Gaza)

I also saw this eye-catching use of screens at Hammerhead

Hammerhead 15 01

And an intriguing historical scenario from the Great War featuring an impromptu attack on an airfield by a scouting cavalry patrol …

Hammerhead 15 02(1914: French cavalry behind the lines at the Battle of the Marne)

Some good ideas, there …

Things to come?  We’ll be back with Operational games on squares shortly, and I’m giving a talk on war art later this month.  At CoW my simple naval rules will get a run out using some components of the Battle of the Denmark Strait.

Meanwhile, out of period perhaps, but don’t forget you are invited to the Naseby 370 event on 13/14 June.
