Skirmish Wargames Show Sept 16


Myself and Postie made it up to Sidcup this morning to visit the second Skirmish Wargames Show of 2016, the first being back in April. There were several games on show.....


Medway Wargames Club - AWI








Herne Bay Wargames - Napoleonic's 











Priviteers of London - Arkansas, Atlanta & Albemarle.





Gravesend Gamers Guild - Warhammer




HHGC - Zombicide.....I think?





The Painters


Old Guard - Ancient Ships
Rome v Carthage



Rainham Wargames club - WWII Nijmegen 






What's wrong with these figures Clint?



Tonbridge Wargames Club - WWII






 These was also a great display of WWII British Para equipment















2 Dodgy reprobates checking out some books....


John Ewing


Having a coke and a sarnie.


Col Bill's


And some of the lovely figures he was selling



Not a great pic, but both me and Postie were very tempted with these Gripping Beast
Teutonic Knights!!

  1. Some cool military outfits.
    Priviteers of London - the three names are all American places.
    Do the games involving mostly horses move faster?

    1. The 3 American names were the names of the 3 Ironclad ships in there game, I think most Ironclad's were named after American towns??
      Funnily enough there aren't many games involving mostly horse, (that I've played in anyway) The game wouldn't move faster, but the Horses would!

    1. Skirmish is the name of the show Martin, most games at this show weren't skirmishes.

    1. Both the 15mm and 25mm are still ticking over.............just, Jonathan, but I haven't painted a thing for a couple of months, so hopefully I'll be boring you all to tears with more stuff soon.

    1. We are very lucky living where we do, there are so many shows less than an hours drive away.

  7. Great photos, Ray. Looks like a fun day for you guys.

    Did they have anything good to eat there? Or do you have to stop along the way and pick something up?

  10. Nice lot of photos. You ask what is wrong with my figures. (Other than the commander!) I will confirm there is nothing wrong with my figures, they are all well painted and based and set up for the PBI rules. So nothing wrong with the figures at all only wrong with me! I forgot 5 different things on the day before getting to the show. For more details I refer you to my blog! (Which I will post a little later today.

    I will confirm the HHGC is indeed "Guildball" and not "Zombicide". If you want to try Zombicide to learn the difference I will happily put a game on for you. (I am not holding my breathe!)

    1. In Fairness they did encroach on another clubs table and put a display on of Zombicide Black Plague, but never actually played it on the day. So that is worth 1/2 a point. (The other club , I think I know who, did not turn up so the table was spare. And better something on the table than nothing at all.

    2. I know its against my religion, but I do quite fancy a game of Zombicide???

  14. I like how the London Privateers have used tiles as the river playing surface with the ACW Naval.
    Though I'm not so struck on the Confederate Battle Flag that Stu seemingly was using as a table cloth - Couldn't they have got something more patriotic? Union Flag. British Army flag. Royal Navy flag - very fitting in Stu's case.

  15. That looks like a cracking show, just the Para equipment alone would have me enthralled.
