Well I'm the last Reject to get my Broadside post up and running, Fran and Lee both got there posts in earlier today. So I won't bore you all with too many of the same details that the lads have already written about. We were all up nice and early as the doors opened at 8, for clubs and traders alike. We were a little early, arriving at around 730 and after a little confusion as to where to park, we found the Wyvern Hall and started to unload all the gear....The Rejects have arrived!!!!
|The lads getting a telling off from Postie, as they took out the terrain boards from the wrong end of the box.|
|Hhmmm? What to do???|
It didn't take us as long as we thought to setup!
I had a great chat with fellow bloggers Whisperin Al from The Wargaming Shed and Tamsin the Wargaming Girl, made an appearance as well, she's loaned me 4 books on Viking Sagas so, I've got a lots of interesting reading to do!
Here are a few photos of our game at the show "The Battle of Amiens 1918". I'll post a short write up and more pics on our game at a later date, I must agree with Fran and Lee, at being both shocked and extremely pleased to be awarded joint second in the game of the show competition. It was unexpected but a fantastic honour for all the Rejects especially Postie himself! well done to all the Rejects!!!!!!

Here's some pics from some of the other games at the show, after looking at BigLee's pics, I've realised somehow I missed quite a few of the games. So apologies if your not here.

Operation Deadstick - The Coup de Main at Pegasus Bridge
|Had a couple of great chats with Clint from Anything but a one who made all the terrain for one of his clubs the Rainham Wargames Club. The game was a Modern Force on Force skirmish. He's a very talented chap is Clint, not only did he make this terrain, but as Fran mentioned, he worked on the film Aliens 2 making a gun rack, but his real claim to fame are the models he made for everyone's friend, Thomas the Tank Engine!!!!|
|Clint said everyone loved his goats!|
|Another great game, this time from Shepway Wargames Club entitled Romani ite Domum, (Romans go Home) North West Germany II IIIX AD|
|A Franco-Prussian game from Real-time Wargames, unfortunately the time I got around to taking pics of this game, they had started to put the figures away, so I didn't get many pics or any info.|
|Lastly a few pics of some Zulu War era guns and Zulu weapons.|
|A Peaky looking white helmet, otherwise known as Fran!|
