LoA Weekender

Clarence Harrison - I've made the pilgrimage to LoA headquarters in Scotland to participate in one of the famed LoA weekenders. Next week Barry, Bob, and I are heading no to Ireland to walk the battlefields that form the basis for my collections in the period, including Derry, the Boyne, Athlone, and Aughrim! We will both be blogging about the trip in the weeks following, but I'm going to post a few quick and random things as we go. I'm traveling light so I didn't bother to pack my laptop which means I have no way to download pics from my 'proper' camera (so these are all camera phone pics). I'm using an app to post now. So I don't have as much control over the formatting.

We travelled to the hotel in Dumphries, well yesterday now since I'm posting in the wee hours of Saturday morning (we were in the bar you see so I couldn't post earlier). Here's rush hour on the outskirts of East Kilbride on our way to the hotel...


We are basically running three games on 6x6' tables Saturday morning, the outcomes of which will determine conditions in later larger battles on 6x12' boards...


.Here are the armies for ONE of the bigger games...

I brought ONE model, my character figure for the weekend , Lord Galmoy...


I've had the chance to meet lots of great folks that I've only interacted with over the net and I'm really looking forward to the games. I'm off to bed now, but I'll try to post a couple of pics tomorrow.

  1. It has been a pleasure finally meeting up Clarence and I hope you enjoy the larger games as much as the smaller ones this morning.
