Warfare 2011

Attended Warfare show at Reading this weekend with 3 mates (yes I do have that many !) and a damn fine time had by all. New attendee this year was Stephen Pollock who on entry to show on Saturday morning was the proverbial 'kid in sweetie shop', I haven't seen a face of such excitement and delight since my young lad on a Christmas morn of yore !! Usual heady mix of trade stands, demo games (seemed to more than usual ?) and competition games.
Trade area seemed very busy on Saturday (no idea how it worked out for traders)

I of course bought nothing.................................................................................................................(only plausible if you don't check bottom of this post)

Some iPhone pics

Competition area


Armati demo game


Black Powder Napoleonic game in 15mm


Impressive 6mm Battle of Cambrai using Great War Spearhead





Lost Battles demo using miniatures with author



28mm WWII game with impressive jungle terrain

Demo game of War & Conquest Ancients

SYW in 15mm using Warfare In Age Of Reason

Poor pic of a very nice 28mm ACW game


More 28mm Ancients using Clash Of Empires this time


A very nice 28mm WWII skirmish game using Rules Of Engagement




Cant recall details of this, I think a dark age skirmish ? 

Wild West shoot out and nice to see budding gamers

A really nice terrain set up for a Blitzkrieg Commander WWII game in 15mm


A large Pirate game



A big (in every way !) Napoleonic game using 54mm kit and Black Powder on a huge table, I think this may have won best in show ?








Battle Of Newbury in 15mm using FOGR rules (Nice to see these in use for non-competition game)




As per usual the Brittain brothers unable to hack the pace 



My haul hard to believe this is £300+ worth ! I reckon we spent about £1100+ between us four loons  
When I am going to paint the new lead collection is quite beyond me
