|Overview. A nice light and airy hall|
|Beautifully modelled game of Norway 1940 - except that information on what |
the game represented was noticeable by its absence.
|A lot of effort had obviously gone into producing the game.|
A pleasure to behold.
|Snow. I like snow.|
|Battle of Britain game.|
|Cabbage crates over the briny.|
|Hex terrain, models balanced on house roofs - I should hate this game...|
|...but I didn't. Looked extremely tempting and I wanted to join in.|
Love the bright green terrain colour - sets off the figures well.
Oh yes, this was The Battle of the Marne, 1914.
|Cracking Hougomont game set up by some local gamers.|
|Inside the courtyard.|
|The defenders prepare.|
|Behind the display boards were a host of lovely 40mm AWI figures.|
|Oh dear, a great looking game I forgot to record the details of.|
Move those playsheets gentlemen!
|This is what we want - good size figures and lots of colour!|
|One of three Zulu Wars games present. Note the PC being used for the rules.|
|Crikey - a Flames of War game that actually looks like a real battle.|
Oops - sorry to be patronising. A very nice presentation, I thought.
|Yes, another unidentified game with some lovely units - as you can see here.|
|Two very friendly gentlemen were overseeing a participation skirmish game |
set in Poland 1939, which naturally drew my attention.
|They had assembled some lovely early-war armour in 1/32nd scale.|
|The future of wargaming? (1). A small but nice looking game |
of something sci-fi in progress.
|The future of wargaming? (2). The Society of Ancients also chose |
a small but perfectly formed game to tempt new recruits.
|One of those post 1945 WW2 games, apparently set in 1947 with walking tanks and |
Shermans with some sort of las-cannon. These were mixed in with ordinary 1945 stuff.
Interesting and fun. That's a lot of technological advance in 2 years, though.
|Eagle Figures stand, with some lovely SYW stuff on display.|
|Outstanding 20mm Arab-Iraeli game.|
|Great work, but I dislike that (currently popular) style of burning marker.|
Looks very artificial to me.
|I've been pining for this particular model for some years, as transport for one of my SYW generals. |
But there's too much other work to be done first. Get thee behind me Satan.
An alternative from Warlord Games is also now available.
|Excellent, more tricornes. A game set in the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion.|
|As the Scots weren't wearing tricornes I didn't bother to photograph them.|
|More redcoats in the same battle.|
|Finally, a small band of 18th century re-enactors were present, and so yours truly couldn't resist the temptation to |
handle a replica Brown Bess. And yes, it's just as heavy and unbalanced as it looks. Shit!
And remember - if it's square, we ain't there.
P.S. Another blogger has captured some of the games my camera missed. I think the demo games at the show really were of a great standard, so for more proof go to:
