The gang gather in the Lard Island Studio to discuss a whole host of issues, from the workshop projects, the Market Garden campaign and the big issue, space in wargames. A special report from the USA brings news of Lard America's latest foray to Historicon and we look forward to Lard events later this year.
The lads hit the road again, with reports from lardy events in Gettysburg, Peterborough and Evesham. As they head to the latter for Operation Market Larden 7, their thoughts turn to the big issue for the show, historical wargames scenarios and their advantages and problems.
They also discuss what's on the workbench with their usual "best bit on the bench" feature and come up with some ideas for scenarios in Normandy and their suggestion of books on that campaign from the Lard Island Library.
Some years ago we produced some rather nice and very popular dice with our Pie and Pint logo on one face, where the six spots are normally located. They were not only popular with gamers but were also said to have incredible powers way beyond just rolling well in a tight corner. With a reputation like this it wasn't surprising when they sold out in quick order and gamers with the old white Lard Dice are marked as true veterans of Lard. For some unexplained reason we never restocked them. Until now that is. However, rather than make the old white dice of the grognard available again, we thought we'd allow that first run to remain unique and go for a different colour. So, the Big Red Dice was born.
A nice size for gaming, 16mm in size, the dice feature the classic logo again on the six face with white spots on sides 1 to 5. They really are a thing of beauty. And very red. To purchase a pack of a dozen Big Red Lardy Dice is simple.
