Last Saturday the 4th June, the Rejects drove the 12 minutes it takes to get to Medway Park Sports Centre, to take part in a demo game at Broadside Games Show, run by those very nice chaps at Milton Hundred Wargames Club.
We arrived just in time for the hall to open up for traders and clubs to set up.
As you may already be aware BigLee has spent the last few months painting up figures, buildings and terrain for us to put on a game.
The game in question was "The Battle of Beau Hunks" a fictional game set in the early 1900's
Using Bluemoon's range of French Foreign Legion and Berbers.
We were using the rules The Men who would be Kings on a 6x4 table
We played 1 practise game, where the French Foreign Legion claimed victory.
Surj, Richard and Steve all wanted revenge and plotted and schemed how best to do it on the day.
They were joined by Oliver.
Me and Postie claimed victory in the first game, for the show we were joined by Smiffy and Dave, which was a bit of a worry as Dave can't throw dice for toffee!!!!
And we're all set, which is where I'm gonna leave our game and concentrate the rest of the post on other games and the show itself.
Its quite a size to be honest and it was great that each table had a lot of room around them, so its easy to get all around the tables to take photos.
I've been to countless shows all over the country and I've got to say that this is a great venue (not just because its 12 minutes from my house!) The lighting is brilliant, everything is so clear, which really helps when taking photos. Also for a busy hall its also very quiet, apparently its got excellent sound proofing built into the walls.
ECW Skirmish - Gravesend Gamers Guild
Emperor Toad's Emporium - Bespoke Terrain & figures.
It was great seeing some more French Revolution action after Richard's game at last years Broadside.
Two games really stood out for me, this being one of them, from Deal Wargames Society.
It doesn't look much like Luxembourg to me, I guess they had to change their plans at the last minute?
I want one of these!!!
A superb game, well done Deal Wargames Society!!!
Mesopotamia 1916 - Skirmish Wargames
Not seen Clint (centre) for a while, nice to see him!
They came and took some photos of Lee's Desert Fort, to show on the site and forum, it was one of their models!
Stuart and Scotty
And mysterious lady!!!
Debris of War
There were a few smaller games at the other end of the show
Dead Man's Hand
Simon from Parkfield Miniatures selling Posties more figures!!
Its looking dodgy in the desert!
The second and I think my favourite game at the show was from
Shepway Wargames Club - Viva la Revolucion! - Krush the Kaiser
Just a great looking game, with so mush going on all over the table.
So there you have it, Broadside 2022!
All the Rejects thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we even won Best at Show game!!!!
Thanks to all the Milton Hundred guys for all the hard work and will definitely see you again next year.
We even know what the games gonna be????
