I was looking through my old photo's and came across this picture of the Cloudships of Mars game from the 2006 Salute show at Excel. It was a participation game run by the South London Warlords and really made good use of the space available to them in their 'new' venue in docklands. This was actually the games third outing, having previously been been at Salute 05 and at Selwg 05.
Its worth taking a look at the South London Warlords pages for this game because there is loads of info available on the rules, the setting and the inspiration. This was one of those participation games that I look back at now and kick myself for not having taken part.
That's very cool. I've never seen anyone using tripods like that, either.ReplyDelete
I think the first outing for this game was the previous years Salute. They used purpose built perspex stands for the models which were much less 'intrusive' on the eye but were not as durable.Delete
Wow those look amazing. Love those airshipsReplyDelete
If you have more photos of this, I think you owe it to us to put them up.. this looks interesting.. really interesting.. Now I am wondering how they played this and what rules they used.. just looks like a lot of fun..ReplyDelete
How did I miss that? I was at Salute that year and never even saw this? Was I blind? Surely the fugg haze of unwashed gamers wasn't so thick that I missed it? Damn. It would have been a real sight to see.ReplyDelete
Never seen thi sbefore. Thanks for sharing Lee!ReplyDelete
Fantastic! Sometimes I am truly amazed by the vision and imagination of gamers who then invest significantly in making it happen.ReplyDelete
This is pretty cool!ReplyDelete
Very cool and it would take up a lot of storage space.ReplyDelete
Remember this and thought these guys are nuts but brilliant!ReplyDelete
I believe the UK expression is gobsmacked. Well Done!ReplyDelete
Great link, nice to see 28mm aeronefs! Inspiration for my VSF gaming, if I ever get round to it...ReplyDelete
