Malaya Day 2006

The TooFatLardies Malaya day in May 2006 saw about a score of Britain's finest wargamers re-fighting the battle of Kampar, which originally took place on the Malayan peninsular in January 1941 as the Japanese pushed south towards Singapore.

The game, disguised as the battle of Lardak, was played over three tables, with the very existence of the third table being a nasty surprise for the Brits! It took a whole day to play, involved over a battalion of 15mm figures on each side (at 1:1 scale), and ended in a hard-fought and costly victory for the Japanese.

Below you will find links to the three briefings (British, Japanese, and Umpire's) and After Action Reports from the players and referees:  all garnished with lashings of photographs.

D-Day Airborne Day 2008

The TFL 2008 Games Day focussed on the Allied airborne landings that were the immediate precursor to D-Day. 

Broadly speaking, activities at Lard HQ focussed on the British 6th Airborne Division's operations; whilst other islands of Lard around the globe played games focussing on the US 82nd Airborne Division's operations. In all, fourteen games were played: reports are below.

Tobruk Day 2011

The TFL Games Day 2011 took place on Sunday 12th June, with the action being a re-fight of the Commonwealth break-in to Tobruk in January 1941. 

Seven games were fought during the day. In the morning, the Commonwealth troops broke through the Italian perimeter. A lunchtime interlude saw the Matildas of 7TRT attempting to suppress the main Italian gun line. Finally, the Commonwealth troops fanned out, with three games charting their progress inside the perimeter.

In addition, the Stockholm Lardies, known somewhat erroneously as the Penguins, also played a game. Their AAR appears as well.
