Once again Daren, Dan and myself will be flying the flag for the South London Warlords at Colours this year. As is our wont we will be putting on a 6mm game, this time set in WW2 and in particular the action around the Son bridge during Operation Market garden. As this one is going to be a large one we will be assisted by a few other clubmates we already have Bart on board but have realised that the 15′ length of the table means that we are going to have to rope in a few more!
Also as usual Daren has pulled out all the stops to model the terrain and we will be using his lovely collection of GHQ kit to try and make sure that XXX Corp can push through the ad hoc German defenders and link up with the American Para’s holding onto the bridge. Although everything isn’t quite ready yet we have done a couple of quick playthroughs of the rules (Micro Armour from GHQ) to acquaint ourselves with them again and to hash out any scenario specific bits that we want to bolt on to add a bit of flavour to proceedings.
So to whet anyone’s appetite that might be interested here’s a few pics of the practice games (as usual click on them to see larger). I’ll be adding another post once we have the full dress rehearsal in September with more details and pics.

Looks good. I’m wavering about Colours – I’m not a massive fan of the venue, but if I do make it I will make sure to stop and have a good look at the game.
Cheers, I’ll pass that on to Daren! If you do go to Colours please do stop by for a chat.
