Pictures from Campaign 2013

We had a really enjoyable two days at Milton Keynes last week, and to those of you who came to see us at the show it was a pleasure to meet you!

As the show is in a shopping centre it is often difficult to tell who is a gamer and who is a member of the "general public". Awards for the daftest comments of the weekend go to one gentleman who, on looking at our game, spent about ten minutes explaining the American Civil War to his wife (ok, one side is in grey and the other in blue but that's as far as it goes!) and to another chap who asked us if our game was set in Vietnam! On the whole though we were very busy chatting to people and answering more sensible questions, and hopefully have done our bit to promote wargaming in general, and wargaming the Great War in particular, to the wider public.

We did get to play the game too, and unfortunately the Germans took a sound thrashing!

As promised here are a few photos from our game at the show.

Campaign at Milton Keynes

We are off this weekend to the Campaign show, which is held on both Saturday and Sunday in the middle of a shopping centre in Milton Keynes. We went to the same show last year and had a great time, so hopefully this year will be just as good! It's a very relaxed show, probably because it is in a shopping centre so there is lots for the wives to do while the gamers chat! The other bonus is that there is natural light coming in through a glass ceiling so its quite good for photos.

I will of course post an after show report with pictures next week!
