This year the event was in the smaller Newsroom on the 4th floor of the Armouries, but in terms of games it probably had only one or two fewer than the previous year. Not being a traditional convention, there were no traders and on this day no Display games; just a dozen or so participation games. The Royal Armouries had generously provided each group with attractive little display stands, which made the whole even look a little more professional, and made you humble author's task of recall far easier.
That said, we kick off with a Game whose presenters eluded my camera. The game appeared to be called 'St. Crispin's Day' and the rules looked homebrew. Nice scenery and what looked to be mainly Perry Miniatures.
|Free figures for participants to take away too|
|Damn fine 15mm painting tho'|
|It's material; somewhere someone is wearing that!|
|Good numbers of 28mm minitures|
|And well painted to boot|
|With decent scenery|
|D Featherstone would be proud|
Lastly the Leeds Wargames Club decided ugly was this years' new look, and made spray painted scenery and seventies fashion waves look like maximum effort. Sure you can make a wargame out of stuff in the cupboard, as their version of Agincourt propounds; or you could play a decent boardgame version of the same. Or at least bring some models!
