Only 4 Reject's made it to Cavalier on Sunday, Fran and Postie managed to squeeze into my little car and we met BigLee there! We also bumped into Stefan, from Dr. Willett's Workshop, who's in the photo below with Big lee on the left Stefan, then Fran and lastly me!
It was a very enjoyable show, and I spent far too much money, (shhh!! don't tell the Mrs), some of which I'm now regretting??? More on that another day!
Apologies to all readers this is a loooong post, I was going to split it in two................. but didn't!!!
The Main Hall
Fran and BigLee taking their pics of the Main Hall , while Postie wonders what its all about???
Essex Minis - Where I spent far too much money???
Is that you??
or maybe you?
This wagon made my mouth water....sad I know!!
Two games stood out for me at the show, here's the first one.
Defending the Bridge at Obourg (1914) by Gravesend Gamers Guild.
I had a good chat with Phil and Reece, two thoroughly nice chaps, wot wot!!
This plane took a bit of battle damage during the day, Phil had to get the glue out for some
much needed repair, while mumbling incoherently........
The second standout game for me was the lads at Loughton Strikeforce, entitled
"The Storming of the Alamo" 6th March 1836
Unfortunately most my pics were out of focus, for lots of good pics goto BigLee's blog, he took some excellent pictures of the Mexican's at the walls.
Had a good chat with the 2 Steve's from Crawley Wargames, I liked the look of their table as you could fold it up like a wallpaper pasting table, after the games finished. We may pinch this idea!?!?!?
Quite obliviously The Society of Ancients - Bagradas 255BC
West Kent Wargamers - Samurai
As above Maidstone Wargames Society "The Bridge over the River Wye"
These lads made me chuckle, I went to take some pics early on, and was told someone got their wires crossed and left the figures at home, so it was a mad dash back to Maidstone for him!!!! Cracking looking game though.
The North London Wargames Group " The Battle of Monte Grande 1859"
Southend & Rayleigh Wargamers - A Saga Viking Raid
Unfortunately took the pics while they were eating their lunch, so the pics aren't that exiting?
Deal Wargames Society "Return to Madagascar 1942"
The lads explained that their planed game was not finished so they dug out an old demo game from 1999!!!
Still looks great to me!!!
Lastly Old France, New England - A FIW skirmish game.
