|Traders in the main Hall|
There were over 30 Traders covering a
wide range of Toy soldier products
and wargames products.
|If you are a wargamer though do not expect the show|
to be like Salute or "Supermarket sweep!"
There is some good stuff but mostly you have to
look for it.
|Traders in the Foyer|
|The Hall of Games. Where the clubs put on games for the public|
Again if you are expecting Salute type games
you will mostly be disappointed.
|There is even a display of modelmaking.|
While I spend almost no time talking to these guys
I do recognise that there is a mutural interest
|Theer is even a Military illustrator|
at the show working away at commissions
from members of the public.
The GamesFor many of us the games are the best bits. here are a selection of games from the show. With comments where appropriate. But Mostly without as I was not asking too many questions.
|A 10mm Napoleonic game |
using Pendraken figures
|A 54mm Somme Game. |
Quite lovely and build by a BBC Production Engineer
|It even had a couple of holes in the side to look |
into the underground sections
|Dave and Paul from the Walderslade club.|
Playing Dust tactics
|A Full Thrust game by Sittingbourne club|
|Paul and Ian (The Crush the Kiaser guys)|
doing a Dark arge Skirmish.
It was the first time I have seen them do a game
pre 20th Century.
|Herene Bay-Whitatable club|
Doing some Lion Rampant
With 3 Retinues each.
|No Idea. But still nice to see|
|A fantasy Big battle in which as many figures on the table|
as possible did seem to be the aim of this game.
Quantity over Quality.
But each to their own
|The Gravesend guys doing a large Necron|
versus Space Marines
|A Mad max Inspired game.|
It will be at Salute in a bigger format.
And who does not want to be a WARBOY!
|Last but not least Our Game of Hammering Iron|
An ACW Naval engagement
And a bloodbath,
But more of this in another post!
Overall a good day out for me and the Rainham club. Kindly Note that Blogger put the artist and first game side by side. And rather than re type the whole thing I just went with it!
THIS SHOW will happen again in the Autumn. on
18th September 2016.
I am about to start preparing our club game for the show. The date line for the game is 2nd September 1944 as part of Operation Market Garden. But things may well change. I will keep you all posted.
Thanks for looking today and I will post again on Wednesday.
