A few Shots of Week Two of an 8000 Pointer WAB game- Seleucids vs Mauryan Indians

Just a few pics of week two- a shame really as the battery in my camera died on week one and I was looking forward to posting up an AAR for this epic battle.

In the end, I think the Seleucids got the better of the Mauryan Indians. 

All the images are "clickable" should you desire a decent gander!

Battleground Wargames Show. Stockton 2023 in Pictures

Just over a week ago I had the pleasure of attending Battleground Wargames Show in Stockton (Saturday 30th November 2024). 

My aim was to write up a full show report inspired by the vast improvements of the venue, the games and the turnout since my last Battleground show in 2015. Unfortunately I've been struck down by quite a vicious virus since the show and a constant mega headache and sinus pain to not make good bedfellows when combined with my attempts to cover the show.

Rather than just let the pictures go to waste I have decided just to post them as they are as I think the show needs promoting and who knows, one day the North East proper (apologies to Vapnartak!) will have a large show of our own.
