Another year over

Thank you to everyone who came, be they trading, running games or just attending. Thank you too to our sponsors, Footsore and the Rift, for their support.

The awards this year went to:

The Steve Frisby Memorial Trophy: North London Wargames Group for their Viking Longships game – we’re convinced you must have been sitting in on some of our crazy game brainstorming sessions!

The Nick Hawkins Memorial Trophy: Huntingdon Wargames for their Carthago Delenda Est 54mm Punic War game – fantastic figure conversions on an impressive-looking game.

See you next year on Sunday September 1st!

Show Awards

As for the past three years, we will be awarding the Steve Frisby Memorial Trophy for the best game in the show, as voted for by our members. (OK, to be fair, ‘voted for’ translates to the chairman running round the show at 2:30 and canvassing the opinions of any members who haven’t passed out from exhaustion, but you get the idea!). Our criteria tend to be that the winner is a game we think Steve would have enjoyed, and that we as a club wish we’d have come up with!

Past winners have been:

  • 2015 – Huntingdon Wargames Club – Catch The Pigeon
  • 2016 – Forest Of Dean Gamers – Martian Practice
  • 2017 – Lenton Gamers – Oppy Wood

In addition, last year we introduced the Nick Hawkins Memorial Trophy. This is a little bit different, in that it is entirely 3D printed with the exception of the plaque: the base and stand are printed in a wood effect filament, and the plane itself is one of Nick’s own 3D design files of a Hawker Hotspur. We’ve chosen to award it to the game we consider the best build, be it the best scenery or the cleverest bit of engineering, in memory of some of Nick’s fantastic looking tables.

Past winner:

  • 2017 – Stand To Games – Forager
