I had one quick circuit of the games and traders but my wife took a more leisurely route and took the following pictures. Apologies for any games that were missed or omitted for whatever reason; it’s not a judgement on any such games whatsoever. Likewise, I can’t put a name or title to all of the games featured below, but will do my best and will attribute them properly when I find the details of the games etc off the Battleground FB page. Please note that for reasons best known to the relationship between my phone and my computer he pictures are not in sequence.
|Tyneside’s grand scale Operation Barbarossa|
|WW2 in the desert.|
|Look Mum, I’m on tv! Impressive WW2 game from the Grimsby club.|
|Like the sign says, Borodino.|
|My mates from Durham and their mesoamerican (is that a word?) bash between the Aztecs and Cortes and his Conquistadors supported by native allies.|
|Local club, The Prince Bishops Wargames and their El Cid game.|
|The buildings and figures for this skirmish game are excellent. I have some of the former for Italy but the figures are rather pricey and often too weird to fit into historical gaming. I would if I could think of a reason to though!|
|Lovely hot air balloon. I still need to make mime for the battle of Fleures in the French Revolutionary Wars.’|
|Westerhope put on a recreation of the Battle of the Little Big Horn. It looked fun.|
The only downside for me was that the caterer had sold out of everything by around 1pm which I could cope with.......just about. Breakfast seemed a very long time ago.
It was really great to meet up with friends old and new and as ever the organisation of the event was top notch, and Leon and his team are to be commended on putting on yet another excellent show. Better start thinking about a game for 2020.
