Operation Gericht: Partizan MMXIV and Evesham, June 2014

For those of you who like to plan ahead and (hopefully) have something to look forward to, here’s a bit of advance news.

Richard Clarke, myself and some other members of the ToofarLardies team will be taking a participation game on the road to a couple of wargames shows this year. We’ve kindly been given an invitation to Partizan MMXIV in Newark on 1 June 2014. We’re also going along to the gaming day organised by the Evesham wargamers on 14th June, entitled “The Lardest Day”.

As for the subject of the game, perhaps it’ll not be a surprise that it’s Great War themed. Here’s a big clue to the subject and the setting for the game:



I’ve not got many more figures left to paint for the game, but there is some modular terrain to build and some hand-outs to prepare. 

And don’t worry, I’m hoping to post the progress here over the next few months.  Hope you can join me for that, as well as the remainder of Curt's splendid Painting Challenge...

  8. For a moment there I thought it said Operation Gherkin. I'll have to get the eyes tested. Sounds great though!

    1. Jim....Operation Gherkin sounds like one of our Christmas games at the club. If we have as good a result with Operation Gericht, the job will be more than half done! Thanks for dropping by!
