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…

Looking ahead to Salute

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…

SELWG 2017

Posted on October 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Better late than never
Here’s my take on SELWG 2017……
I’ve always loved SELWG, ever since getting into the daft hobby of ours many moons ago. I’m sorry to say that the show seemed to have slipped in the past few years IMHO, but this year I’m extremely happy to say it was back to its very best!
Yes there were a few traders and games missing, but it was still a crackin’ show!
The standard of games were excellent and most were historical for a change!!!

Well that was a first… me and Postie were the first to arrive!
Tickets numbers 1 & 2!
And Postie still managed to push in!

My favourite game of the show went to Gravesend Wargames Club’s  WWII game, Taking the Pissoir

Is that you?
South London Warlords – Invasion of the  Dalaks!!

Anti-Alchemists – Texas War of Independence 1835

Essex Warriors – Siege of Maldon 917AD

Me and Postie bumped into that famous wargaming dame, Tamsin.
No I’m not that tall, they’re just both very very short!
