Yesterday morning I nipped over the QE2 Bridge south of the river to attend Skirmish 2012. This is a small show held in a Grammer School in Sidcup and while not big it is varied and interesting. Ostensibly a Toy Soldier show there are always several wargames and traders to keep things interesting.
I always enjoy the informal atmosphere which is why for the last couple of years I have been taking my youngest daughter along (got to get her training program started early!). We had a great time this year as there were some excellent display games to see and plenty of traders selling toy's rather than miniatures which means she was able to spend some of her pocket money. In fact by the end of the day she had spent more money than I had!
The other thing I like about this show is the opportunity to meet up with fellow gamers and bloggers. I met up with The Angry Lurker and Postie but I was also introduced to David Crook (A Wargaming Odyssey) and Bob Cordery (Wargaming Miscellany).
