We are less than two weeks away from Crisis in Antwerp, Europe's premier wargames event. The Lard Island build project is well underway. This year we will be running two games, one of What a Tanker and one of Chain of Command set in the Netherlands in 1940 and using thge new Blitzkrieg 1940 Handbook. The latter requires a fair bit of new terrain for the Peel-Raam lone defences which the Germans encountered on the 10th of May 1940.

You can find some of what we've been doing on Lard Island News. Here is the first bit on the canal line: link

Here's the second bit on some Dutch bunkers: link

And here are a few snaps.

More updates to come over the next week.

You have been raiding Starbucks for coffee stirrers again Rich! :-)

Lol. Actually, I was so embarrassed about how many I was nicking from coffee shops that I bought a big bag on eBay. I am no longer embarrassed but now have 4,995 coffee stirrers with no immediate job to do…

Looking excellent….! As a matter of interest, Rich, do you now rate Crisis above Salute?

Immensely more relaxed and enjoyable. The venue is not as swish and modern, but it has more character. The show has more historical wargaming then Salute, and that's what I'm interested in, but still has plenty of other stuff. The range of traders is excellent and diverse, many of whom I never see at UK shows. The TSA organisers are incredibly helpful.

To be fair, the whole experience of Crisis is just much more pleasant. Antwerp is a beautiful city full of great bars and restaurants, travelling over there is not just about a great show but also enjoying a great city.
