Partizan Interlude!

Hi guys and gals,

Against all the odds I actually made it down to Partizan, not for that long, I think we left at lunchtime but I did get a chance to talk to some old and new friends which was great. The new venue, a series of marquees for those that didn't know, was actually a nice change in terms of light though it did reach get quite hot as more people arrived and the morning wore on. Still, a very good venue if you like taking piccies, which I do! Oh, one last thing, for the first time I can remember visiting a war games show I didn't buy anything except a copy of the new Wargames Illustrated! Somewhat of a miracle given all the fantastic goodies on show!!

James Morris and Newark Irregulars- Battle of Keren









Adrian's Walls Terrain





Steve Jone's AWI Wietzell's Mill



Perry Miniatures- Fictitious Battle in Libya Western Desert









Two Fat Lardies Battle of Verdun





Lovely Redoubt Rorkes Drift Vignette



Simon Miller (aka Big Red Bat) Roman Civil War on the River Po

Another play test for Simon's To the Strongest Rules as well as a damn fine looking demo game.



League of Augsburg ???












Westbury Gamers Retreat from Moscow 





Early WWI Derby Wargames Society






Chaco War South East Scotland Wargames Club



WWI League of Gentlemanly anti-Alchemists




And last but not least, Guy of Wargames Soldiers and Strategy fame who was unfortunately beaten on the draw when it came to taking this pic :>)


There were a few great games that having limited time, I simply didn't get a chance to take any snaps of. So, collective sorry to those clubs and individuals who have been missed out- you deserved to be in the limelight just as much as the games I have displayed here.

Next post will be back to the sculpting/converting of the Afghan Warrior Casualty.

Cheers,
Darrell.
