Excellent Demonstration Game (Jutland 1916):
Long time since I managed to get out and "go to a show" but it was a really pleasant experience, despite "things having moved on" since my last outing. Hot things seemed to be Sci-Fi, Zombie Horror and 28mm plastics (replacing 15mm all things of 15mm) or 15/10/6mm WWII kits. My old school 15mm ancients and 20mm WWII were hard to find. Still it was great rummaging through stuff "bargain hunting". A comment from a trader seemed to be "most people were looking and buying tit-bits rather than huge armies".
Impressively "shiny" new items found were:
- Russo-Jap ships in 1/2400 (Note: I have this period covered in 1/3000 from Navwar) from Tumbling Dice
- Sci-Fi Dropship Horizon
- Millennium Falcon for X-Wings, the Rebels need Han and Chewy
- 28mm Warlord Games Scots Lancers (ECW/Scottish Montrose Campaign
- 8 x 15mm Carthaginian Citizen Spearmen going cheap in a "bargain bucket"
- 20mm Britannia Miniatures Sherman ARV
- 20mm Britannia Miniatures Matilda II CS
- 20mm Britannia Miniatures British Paratroopers PIAT Team, 2" Mortar Team
