Salute 2006 saw the show move to Excel in the Docklands, which made travel to the show much easier (for me at least) although the car parking fee's were eye-watering! This was the show that saw the South London Warlords put on probably their largest participation game ever. Cloudships of Mars was grand in scale and very impressive to watch, my only regret is that I didn't make the time to join in as a participant. This game made really good use of the space available to them in their 'new' venue in docklands although this was actually the games third outing, having previously been been at Salute the year before and at SELWG also in 2005.
|There was a lot of 'empty space' at this first show at Excel, but the event has grown into its venue and traders have made much better use of the vertical space afforded to them.|
|This impressive chariot game was based on the epic movie Ben Hur|
|One of my favorite games from the 2006 event was this awesome recreation of Rorks Drift|

|This D-Day landing beach was also very inspiring|
|Another shot of the Cloudships game which gives a good view of the scale of this well attended participation game.|
