Due to a lack of take-up, we regret to announce that the Gaslands, SAGA and Magic tournaments will not now be going ahead. Those who have already entered will be issued refunds via Paypal shortly. Our thanks and apologies to Andy from Ainsty Castings and Mike Hutchison, author of Gaslands, for their help in organising the events thus far.
You can gain discounted admission to this years show by buying your ticket in advance from this website, and whatsmore it will guarantee that you get this year’s show miniature (more below). Discounted admission tickets cost £3, a saving of £2 against the door price, and can be purchased by here.
As mentioned above, buying a discounted entry ticket will ensure that you recieve this year’s show miniature for which we thank show sponsor Footsore Miniatures. The miniature is based on a Samurai and comes with the option of a traditional sword or a laser sword – you could call him Hereward Spacerunner or something similar!
As we suspected, Warlord were not to be the final trader we announced for this year’s show as we have been able to squeeze in a late booking from Stand To Games.
From the success of the Napoleonic war game rules Over the Hills, authors Quinton Dalton and Adrian McWalter formed the company Stand to Games Ltd early 2017. Their aim is to provide a series of army lists, accessories, 28 mm figure ranges and products to compliment Over the Hills as well other rule sets and gaming periods. Adrian and Quinton have been war gaming since their early teens so have over 80 years of experience between them!
We’ve revamped things for this year slightly. First off, there are now five, rather than four, one hour slots, starting at 10am rather than 10:30am. If you’re booked in for the 10am slot you’ll be able to get in a little bit ahead of time to set up. Secondly, we’ve changed the prices slightly – the average cost of a table is still the same, but they now range from £7 down to £3 as you get later in the day. As before, this doesn’t include admission.
We would ask, as a courtesy to other traders (and we’re aware our store won’t let us restrict this in software) potential traders could restrict themselves to a maximum of three slots initially.
The 20th and final (for now…) trader we can announce as attending this year’s show is Warlord Games.
Formed in 2007, Warlord Games are designers, manufacturers and distributors of finely detailed historical and science fiction miniatures in plastic, metal and resin. Since then they’ve released five core rule sets to cover everything from the Ancients, the Horse & Musket era, the Black Powder era, right through the World War Two and beyond into the future!
Trader number 19 for 2018 is a Hereward ever present. Yes it’s Ainsty Castings.
Andy from Ainsty will be the host for our Saga Melee, tickets for wich can be purchased here.
