Another day, and another collection of pictures from a past Salute, this time the 2008 Show. As you can see, I encountered some 'Imperial' difficulties during the day but it was still a great show. The organisers managed to steer clear of controversy this year and most of the people I talked to thought the event was the best so far.
Tomorrow I'll be positing my pictures from the 2009 show.
|The last time I was told to get on my knees its didn't work out too well!|
|There were more traders and demos at this show and many stands started to make better use of the vertical space available to them with tall banners and flags.|
|This convoy of Shermans was part of a large 'Hells Highway' (Market Garden) game on a very long table|
|There was also some larger scale armour present at the game. Unfortunately I wasn't able to sneak one of these out of the show in my rucksack!|
|Battle chickens! Or something like that.|
|One of my favorite demo games was this arctic game based no doubt on the classic film Ice Station Zebra.|
|The Fords of Isen was a 1/24th scale game run by the South London Warlords|
|The game used Toy figures to recreate this important side battle from the books.|
|There was also plenty of other 'historical' figures to be found at the show|
|There's nothing quite like a phalanx of charging elephants to make a hopolite reconsider his career options!|
|The Doctor makes a visit to the show|
|Some of the terrain and buildings available to buy were eye-wateringly good but also very expensive.|
|Japanese Warring States armies go head to head again|
