Broadside 2013 - The Games & Nipples??



Well there were a few other games at Broadside this year, not just ours, so I 
thought its about time I posted the pics!!




 The Battle of Salado Creek, 1842 - Skirmish Wargames



Society of Ancients - Issus 333 BC


The Nipples, unfortunately they're male and belong to Martin.....yuk!
Pass the sickbag please!!!









Gravesend Wargames Club - AWI


Fran & Tamsin





ECW - Realistic Modelling Services


Me and Fran had a very interesting chat with Mike Reynolds from





 East Grinstead Wargames - Crossfire


Mr Broadside himself, Alan Abbey






 Shepway Wargames Club - The Town with no Name






 Southend Wargames - Gunboats on the Nile
I had a good chat with Richard above, he explained this was not their planned game,
They had to dig this old gem up and resurrect it in an emergency!!






Eastbourne Men at Arms - Operation Husky Sicily 1943









Deal Wargames Club - Denmark 1940
This game won The Game of the Show award.




Clint and chums from Rainham Wargames Club - Blood, Bilge and Iron Balls


And finally Tamsin surprised me with her 2nd secret project..


She said it was me but I think it looks more like Fran!!!

Cheers
Tamsin!!!!

  1. Absolutely wonderfull terrain and scenery!

    (I always seem to forget how tall Fran is, he looks like a giant in most pictures of him)

    The miniature is great! But I think it is you...Fran has a beard...

  2. Yes there is no getting away from it that model is far to Ugly and beardless to be Fran and is definitely a better likeness of you Ray ;)

    There are a lot of nice looking games shown in this post the AWI table really grabbed me as did the Rainham table

    1. Why thank you Andrew, it was more the giant belly than the ginger beard.

  4. Wonderful looking games! I'm disappointed about the nipples. At least it wasn't a pic of the poor fellow being depantsed.

  5. Nice post Ray. Fran seems to have lost some weight I note!

    The nipples reference was a little let down, but I am sure if I google nipples I will find some more.

    Sweet!

  12. Great report Ray! But regarding Martin's bare parts: remind me not to read your blog before breakfast... :-p

  13. Great Pictures. Thanks for showing.
    The model is great cool idea. I wonder what comes next..?

  14. Thanks for including my game in the pics, Really not on a par with most of the terrain, I promise to do better next year. (I always have such grand plans and then change my mind before I get it finished)

    I seem to have missed most of those games in my shopping frenzy. Oh well most games get more than one outing.... maybe I'll see them at SELWG.

    Now Onto the you bit. Great to see you and the guys again and you know you had one of the best games of the day even if you can't get a prize every time. The figures looked good, the terrain looked good, and even the rejects looked for the most part sane! (I can't be too nice!) I look forward to seeing what you come up with next year.

  16. Great pictures Ray, somehow I managed to 'miss' the Salado Creek game by Skirmish Wargames from my pictures, and they were on the table next top us! Unforgivable!! Sorry fella's.

    Thanks Clint for the positive feedback...and the fudge! Yummy.

    Still recovering from Sunday, my feet still hurt!

  30. Another click for nipples, but it's all right, at least you've got those girls from the magazine on there, which is my next destination. I think if there is an artwork, which the artist says is you, then it is you.

    But there is some good news, I did finally get new glasses fourteen months after you had suggested it, which means that I took your advice, although at the time I had convinced myself that it was my idea, I see from my comments that it was your idea before that.
