With just over a week to go, all can be revealed...

http://hereford1938.blogspot.co.uk/2016 ... -game.html

Colonel Patrick Mustard; notorious seducer, rake and general gadabout, is dead – done in, it is widely believed, by one of the many humiliated cuckolds left in his wake.

While many women may lament the passing of this infamous ladies’ man, husbands throughout the shattered empire can breathe a sigh of relief.

Or can they…?

You see, it transpires that Col. Mustard was in the process of writing his memoirs – a no doubt salacious history of conquests that, should it ever be published, would ruin the reputation of many a high-born lady.

Being something of a battlefield tourist, Mustard was on a motoring tour of the main front lines when he was shot, stabbed, throttled and beaten to death. However the manuscript of his memoirs was not discovered upon his person.

Investigations reveal that it was last seen in his possession when he left his hotel in Malvern. Between then and his death in Monmouth he stayed at three locations in Herefordshire – ergo he must have hidden the manuscript for safe keeping at one of these places.

It is imperative that someone recovers the manuscript – a most valuable document that would cause untold damage to British high society were it to fall into the wrong (or right, depending on your political outlook) hands. Whichever faction finds the manuscript will win the gratitude of a great many powerful people, including one who holds sway over a large swathe of northern Herefordshire.

The manuscript will be hidden somewhere on one of the three tables, which represent the three places in Herefordshire (Brimfield, where Government forces are guarding against a rebel incursion from Ludlow; Witney-on-Wye, where the Anglicans are retreating before a river-borne BUF advance; and Aconbury, where the hills commanding the Ross road are being contested) visited by Col. Mustard before his demise.

The race is on! Royalists, Fascists, Anglicans and Socialists (not to mention mercenaries and newcomers the Albertines) must not only beat the opposing side(s) but also scour the land for this important document and reap the rewards!

Stay tuned for lots of smashing photos and AARs after the event!

Cheers mate - you were there in spirit if not in person!
I'm sure the reports (biased or otherwise) will roll in over the next few days, but suffice to say the rebels prevailed over the forces of law and order (just about), with the manuscript falling into the most nefarious of hands...

Seemingly we had two Anglican victories (just), followed by a "narrow boat" victory for the Anglicans on the third table (blame Gav A for that pun).

Sorry should have added a great day and night. Excellent tables with great scenery. Scenarios were well worked out. A fantastic collection of players who as ever showed the correct way to play VBCW. Top marks all over. I will not go into the details of my small part of the game as JP has suffered enough. Army of the day goes to Rob Bresden with his armoured Barges. Many thanks to all especially Jon and Giles

My report, delayed by a bout of man flu, and a string of people bending my ear about a contentious planning application (no it wasn't Captain Arrowsmith applying to burn down something)

https://thelostcityofcarcosa.com/2016/04/17/avbcw-big-game-2016-04-09-the-hunt-for-col-mustards-memoirs-1/

First two posts are up, and I'll put another couple up today.
