If It's Autumn, It Must Be SELWG
There were more displays and trade stands up on the mezzanine floor, but my overall subjective impression was that there were fewer stands and customers this year. Admittedly, two of the clubs had to cry off at the last moment due to illness and a van expiring on the magic roundabout but even so...
If you look carefully, you can just see Mosley's Blackshirts charging across the town square to liberate the Town Hall on this superb battleboard.
John was running a very nice large scale 'Tomb of the Cybermen' participation game.
Morpheus were showing their Thunderbirds game. I managed to blag a Captain Kirk model from their upcoming project!
This is a new company - to me - with wonderful steam punk/ Cthulhu models. The thing on six red legs is a Zero-Point Power Generator so beloved of Nazi conspiracy theorists.
I couldn't resist buying the steampunk UXB.
Fantasy Flight Star Wars games continue to be popular.
A great display of British Commandos attacking a German controlled port.
A battleboard is improved considerably by a nice central piece like this V2. Isn't that so much better as an objective than a coin?
And finally, the Warlord Games site were advertising their upcoming Dr Who game. The first miniatures were on sale and had sold out by lunchtime. This will be big chaps.
[Blatant advert warning: I wrote the rules.]
And that wraps up the stuff that caught my eye - well everything but my spoils.
This year I was strictly disciplined and left after my cash ran out. The rumour that my wife confiscated my credit cards is quite untrue: I gave them up voluntarily.
See y'all at Salute.
