I'm a bit late posting my SELWG report this year, and I've been beaten to the punch by all the Rejects and a lot of other bloggers. I blame work? the kids? Mrs R? bloody computer? camera? and work again?
Anyway Four Rejects made it upto a very, very soggy Crystal Palace last Sunday, to spend loads of their hard earned cash. We met BigLee in the carpark were he'd been waiting for us under a tree. There was no way I was going to stand outside and queue up, (Seems like everybody had the same idea?) so we sat in the car until opening time. Now this was a feat in itself (have you seen pics of me Fran and BigLee??) just try and imagine me, Fran, BigLee and the rather smaller Postie all jammed into a Ford KA. I was ok-ish because I had Postie behind me but Fran and Lee both had their knees rubbing their ears!!!.
Anyway, I digress.....On with the show!!!!!
First up are Southend Wargames Club and their game The Battle of Cryslor's Farm 11th November 1813
A War of 1812 game. Unfortunately most of the pics didn't come out very well, these were the best of a bad bunch. I had a good chat with Southend's Richard and won some Hard tack after coming very close to guessing the tune to "Marching through Rochester"
Loughton Strike Force - Attack on Ponyri
Just love this scenery!!
Hence the first pic
Simon Miller aka BigRedBat - The Battle of Thrapus 46 BC
Had a brief chat with Simon, he was very busy pointing out the rules to the game
This was a sceptical to behold, I took loads of pics of the game, but most ending in the recycle bin, I must have been suffering with shaky hand syndrome dammit!
Essex Warriors - War of the Roses
East Grinstead Gamers - Crossfire WWII
SEEMS - Tabletop Teasers On Tour
Streatham & Tooting - The War without an Enemy ECW
Redhill Wargames Club - The Battle of Valle Las Terreno Aldea
