So the day finally came, two years after the last event.
|Tim Cull and members of the Farnborough Wargames Club presented The Battle of Sentium (295 BCE). 12' x 6' table with 6 well-briefed players.
|At the other end of the scale was Steve Johnson's Napoleonic battle,
using a scenario from Grant and Asquith's Scenarios For All Ages. 3' x 2' table.
|Stuart C and the Cirencester Wargames Club brought a Renaissance game,
with Poles against an Ottoman army. 12' x 4' table
|This is JP's great-looking Napoleonic game, The Battle of Dollitz, using General d'Armee.
Another biggie on a 12' x 6' table.
|Equally lovely was this ACW game led by Keith McWilliam.
Another 12' x 4' game.
|Couldn't miss out the train. Nice!
|My old buddy Paul put together a Cold War Commander game
featuring a battle from the 1967 'Six Day War'.
|No wargames show would be complete without someone using a plastic beaten zone.
|In the side room Dave Kenyon and friends had set up a 6' x 4' table
with a Sharp Practice game set in the French-Indian War.
|Game 8 was Jon Billington's WW2 game using the old
Battlegroup Panzergrenadier rules from 2002.
|Best Game and the Stuart Asquith Trophy went to Tim Cull. An impressive game,
with a lot of effort put into historical background and player briefing.
Plus some very high quality figures.
|Best Figures - Steve Johnson. Tom was very taken by the 10mm MDF figures
Steve was using, and felt Stuart would have loved them.
|Best terrain went to JP. A really attractive game which drew you in with its visual appeal.
|Honourable mentions to the other 5 gamers who braved the fuel shortage
to put on games we could all enjoy. Thank you gentlemen.
|Cavalry clash at the Battle of Dollwitz.
|Crazy-good figures and models.
|Dollwitz again. A fine spectacle.
|The ACW game gets going.
|Steve's now-famous MDF figures are from Commision Figurines.
|More terrific figures in Dave's FIW game.
|Gamers having fun.
|The Arab-Israeli game from the Israeli side.
|More gamers having fun.
|Did I mention the terrific figures?
|Oh, for goodness sake stop enjoying yourselves.
|Jon's game used the 'Pont de la Croix' scenario from
Gavin Lyall's 1976 classic, Operation Warboard. Very high nostalgia value.
|A man and his game. Dave Kenyon with his FIW skirmish set up.
