My one small complaint is in fact an old moan I have made before, namely poor labeling of the display games. Only a handful of the tables had any title/information available to the casual viewer and some of the groups (thankfully just a handful - naming no names) seemed so intent on their games they ignored visitors. This made identifying the games in my pictures a little tricky, so if any are mislabeled please let me know and I'll amend my captions.
Although it was only a small show I still enjoyed it, mainly because its my 'local' show, being just five minutes from home. The highlight of the show was the amazing trench warfare table created and presented by Whitstable & Hern Bay Wargames Club. the game, Crush the Kaiser featured two opposing sections of trench lines including support trenches. The detailing of this entirely club built table was fascinating and very interesting to look at.
Sometimes the smaller shows are the best ones.
That WWI table is awesome, wow what a set up, looks like a fun day.ReplyDelete
Very nice photos!!!ReplyDelete
Rule 6: Do not let the other half know how much this stuff costs. Good photos and you were very lucky to get such an attractive woman to marry you my friend....remember rule 6.ReplyDelete
A 'small' show is better than none at all, believe me! I see you have taken a different approach to the issue of the missus, I took (the now) Mrs Adelaide Gamer to a show in the courting phase of the operation. Worked a treat!ReplyDelete
Hein - I like the smaller shows. they don't take up the whole day and they feel more intimate and friendly.ReplyDelete
Angry Lurker - Yep, I definately lucked out with my woman... She's out of my league for sure. We have been a couple for over 25 years and I still wonder what the hell she's doing with a bum like me!
Adelaide Gamer - Mrs BigLee has always known about my hobby but has never felt the need to join in (fair enough). But yesterday it was nice to spend an hour wandering around on our own, without the kids for a change. All in all a very nice afternoon.
Some great looking games there. WW1 table looks really good.ReplyDelete
Wow, the last table looks the part.ReplyDelete
Great stuff, I don't live to far from Dagenham, have to remember that.ReplyDelete
The intent people ignoring visitors has happened at all the few shows I have appeared at. Sort of like computer geeks but with something else to get technical about.ReplyDelete
What jumps out here is the kids in the background.
Well done Long Time suffering Mrs BigLee, smiling or grimacing?ReplyDelete
Smiling of course! Mind you, she might be Grimacing this weekend. W\e have the Delvers D&D 4e game night on Friday and then I'm out on Saturday with the Rejects playing the Franco-Prussian War. Lucky me!ReplyDelete
Holy crap, that set piece is amazing. Fine work. Real fine work.ReplyDelete
