This Saturday was the annual big Xmas game at my home club, the Devon Wargames Group, who meet in Exeter. Each month at the club we will run two or three different games to cater for a wide variety of tastes, but at Xmas we make a point of running a big game for all members to join in.
This year we decided to do a big 28mm Wars of the Roses game asking all club members to purchase a group of figures and get them painted and based for the big day. One of the guys even organised a bulk price deal on Perry plastics to help get everyone started

I have done a full account of the "Battle of Whipton Cross", a little hamlet on the edge of Exeter where our titanic clash occurred and just happens to be where our club meetings are held today.

Happy Xmas to everyone, may Santa bring you lots of toys, if you've been good.
