Another weekend, another event! This weekend it’s Derby World Wargames, at Derby University in the UK. This used to be called the Old Glory Nationals, and to veterans like me that’s what it’s still referred to as. In fact, as I never bought any models from Old Glory, when I use the phrase I tend to mean this event. Anyway, I’ve got a load of photos to sort through and will post a more organised commentary in a day or two. There’s not time tonight as I’ve got to assemble the ships and learn the rules for Dreadfleet. I’m playing it tomorrow. But back to the show…
We got there just before the traders were finished setting up so wandered about looking at the games. This one caught my eye: the raking light of the early morning sun catching the pennons of the lancers as they prepared for battle 🙂
This is a 2 day event so if you have a chance to pop down tomorrow you could still attend. It’s been a great day today and the atmosphere has been very cheery and full of smiles. It’s quite a big event – the photo at the top shows less than a fifth of the floor area. There are loads of nice display games, a few intriguing participation games and loads and loads of traders, some with shiny new toys. More of that later 😉
I also met up with Frontlinegamer – always good to put a face to a name.
