First game at club since lockdown

Hi,

first game at our local club since lockdown;

Serbian army (#8), from the excellent PP new range, vs Austrians (#11).

That's a very nice-looking game!

Good to see the newly-raised Serbs coming out to play too.

Sadly in the UK our forces are likely to remain socially distanced for a little while yet...

That is a great game Pierre.I like your custom made markers too.
If you are in the UK one day we must all get together.
Maybe you can fly over for an SB day in the midlands (Simon's territory).

We can pick you up from the airport I am sure.

Martin,

great; I must say that Xavier (Anatoli) and I have thought before about coming to a SB day, but 2020 turned into a very complicated year for big plans...  :(  ...but we keep the idea in our heads for better times.  ;)

Thanks, and courage to all UK gamers and friends!

@Leslie BT: our club meets on saturdays afternoons, near Rennes, not so far from your county It seems (about 90mn to Carentan); so if you wish to come along one day, send me a message and we'll be happy to organize a big SB game with you!

Pierre

I am much closer than Carantan.
We live at Saint-Michel-de-Montjoie.
If we visit Ikea at Rennes its a bit less than an hour. So you are as close as the Carantan club.
Do you only play PP SB rules or are there any others?

Thanks !  :)

We live at Saint-Michel-de-Montjoie.

So It is even shorter; you just have to leave the A84 at Liffré, and there you are !..  :D

Do you only play PP SB rules or are there any others?

One player plays Conqueror & Kings and SCW; most others play 28mm skirmish or fantasy rules (SAGA, W40, etc.  ::) )

We also play 15mm FPW, ACW and WW2 games using home made rules.

Here with the link to the club forum; forthcoming games are scheduled at "Séances hebdomadaires":

Pierre, been and registered on the site, don't know if I can get over on the 4th July but will know through the week.
See your only allowed 10 players. Do you get so many?

You are about the same distance in time as going to Carantan.

At present I have PP SCW armies, SB French army, ACW, Pirates (Land and Sea), several PBI armies.
Armies in 28mm for Bolt Action / Chain of Command (CoC). We prefer CoC. Several forces for Sharp Practise. And just starting Infamy.
Have some Saga Moors but these are not finished yet.
Several forces in 54mm.

Great !  :D

Most of the time there are between 4 and 8 players.

I am however afraid that the "RFCM players" (Anatoli and me) won't be aivalable on the 4th of july, and our next venue to the club will rather be on the 11th.

Hope to meet you there!  :)

Pierre, hope to be down on 11 July.
What RCFM game?  I have early French and late war Germans for SB.
And I can do a number of SCW forces.
It may be two of us, if that's alright.

Fantastic, I have EW Germans, Belgians and BEF, so if you bring the early French, we can even plan a 900 points SB big game with 2/4 players..
I'll send you a PM for the details.

Normally our next SB game Saturday 11 is confirmed : if so, be sure we'll take a lot of pics of this memorable Franco-British meeting!  :)
