Firstly let's talk about parking, there was a bunch of "Travellers" (No not from the sci fi rpg) who had tried to use the carpark of the event space so the usual car parking was restricted and with a great many people parking on the grass. (Including us!)
Secondly footfall did seem a little down this year, not because of the parking as we all know IF you can get a wargamer out of their house they are going to make it to the show! Footfall was not so noticeable in the morning but very noticeable after 1pm.
Below are a few of the games that did for one reason or another stand out!
|A Very French Civil war.|
I assumed the game would involve lots of Gallic shrugs
but saw none in evidence.
|A James Bond Skiing game|
Interesting as one of the few games using the 3rd dimension.
You do not see 3 d in every game so nice to see it on occassionbs
|An Ancient Greece game|
A Participation game at the very moment that Big Lee has his camp sacked!
I bet he did not mention that!
|While not a period I have very much interest in it is still|
good to see nice figures en-mass.
|Anything could happen in the next 30 minutes. |
A "Stingray" game and only stick in the muds would not want a Stingray game!
|"Stretcher bearer" |
Celebrating the contribution of the unsung heroes of WW1
|Simple MDF ships used to great effect.|
It is great to see the uses that laser cut MDF can be put to.
While the scale is too large for my interest I can appreciate it.
|The Latest "Crush the Kaiser" game/supplement|
is the American Mexican war of the same period as WW1
(all 3 pictures)
Where else do you ever see a game of this setting.
I never have
That said There were two games I just forgot about taking pics of. A 6mm WW1 game and a Darkest Africa game. Both situated up by the bring and buy stands.
It was great to see all the bloggers and all my wargames chums again.
