Salute 2018 Photo Review

Posted on April 15th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Another huge success is the only way I can describe Salute 2018. This is the biggest one day wargames event in the UK and its hard not to be impressed by the size, diversity and shear ‘buzz’ of this annual wargame show. It may lack the personal touch o…

Salute is just a few days away and as always I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve been to many over the years and every time it seems to be larger and more tiring (or maybe I’m just getting older, fatter and slower?). I always approach such a big sho…

Back From Trumpeter Salute 2018

Posted on March 19th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

It was an excellent weekend. I was under-prepared for my Pulp Alley games but managed to get enough done to pull them off. The table, at least, looked awesome as I’d been distracted from other prep by the building of many new buildings. Eight players each running a full ten point League is really too … Continue reading Back From Trumpeter Salute 2018

Yes, Virginia, there is a Guidebook app for Cold Wars 2018.  Alas, this is the last “Standard Plan” app I can make for HMGS, as Guidebook.com has discontinued this plan, which allowed smaller conventions like ours to make use of … Continue reading
