Joy of Six 2017
Sunday 16th July saw the Cold War Commanders head off to Sheffield for the annual outing to the fantastic 6mm specific wargames show "Joy of Six" organised by those good chaps at Baccus and Wargames Emporium. This year we were lucky enough to be asked to put on one of the big showcase games so we had a 20' x 6' table to fill. The idea was to showcase our LANDJUT 1989 campaign which is running throughout 2017 culminating in the Big Weekend up in Grimsby at the end of September. So we had elements of all the games played so far. Amphibious assaults, river crossings, airborne assaults on key airfields. All the things to make a visually impressive table for people to see on the day.
Great day meeting up with the chaps and meeting new faces who are interested in 6mm. As always not much actual game play although Steve G and Ian S got through quite a few turns in the centre of the table as did Andy T and Neil M around the airfield. Other than that alot of talking to people about the game and the terrain which is what this show is all about. Roll on Grimsby when we all meet up again for a whole weekend of CWC.
Once again thanks for all the Cold War Commanders for their help in putting this game on. Richard C, Andy C, Ian S, Steve G, Danny M, Simon W, Keith T, Andy T, Mark J and Neil M.
Thanks for looking.
