Sunday was a very interesting day, as for various reasons I ended up at the show doing the game on my own! Luckily there were several people who joined in during the day so I was able to give the rules a bit of a playtest, and make some amendments. Everyone who played the game said how much they enjoyed the rules and that they gave a really fun game whilst being reasonably realistic. At one point we changed history too, as Keith Park (flying a Bristol F2b) shot down Herman Goering (flying an Albatros DVa) in flames! This lead to a bit of debate over who might have become head of the Luftwaffe in WW2.....
Legion isn't a big show, there were about a dozen or so games and a few traders (but very good ones!) I did manage to pick up a copy of "The tanks at Flers" for under a tenner, which was a bargain! The lighting isn't great in the leisure centre, so the photos below are a bit on the dark side, especially as I had to resort to a brown cloth to cover the table (no prizes for best scenery this time then!).
I was using our new style aircraft bases, made from magnetic pointers - they worked a treat!
