This year, we’re going to be running a SAGA Melée again at Hereward: this time, Andy from Ainsty Castings has very generously agreed to be the ‘man in charge’ for the event.
You can sign up here – entry is £10 including show admission. The rules pack will be updated shortly, just as soon as Andy gets it to us.
We are beyond delighted to announce that this year, we have invited Mike Hutchinson, author of the hit post-apocalyptic driving/combat game Gaslands, to come and run a tournament at the show.
If you haven’t come across the game yet, we strongly recommend it – it’s a massive hit at our club, and winner of the UK Games Expo award for Best Miniatures Rules (both judges’ award and public vote).
If you’re interested, you can sign up via the link above or on the right: entry is £10 including show admission, and we will be using the Gaslands Organised Play rules that Mike has drafted.
We’re delighted to announce that our headline sponsors for this year’s show are the fabulous Footsore Miniatures.
As well as producing (from the hands of sculptor Bill Thornhill) several ranges of fantastic Dark Ages figures, they also produce the brilliant Gangs of Rome game and its supporting cast of miniatures.
They have promised us what sounds like the perfect giveaway figure for this year’s show, and as soon as we have a sculpt to show you, it’ll be up on the site.
The 6th trader we can announce for our 2018 show is another Hereward everpresent as we welcome back David Lanchester Military Books!
