Our thanks and apologies to Andy from Ainsty Castings and Mike Hutchison, author of Gaslands, for their help in organising the events thus far.

Trader News

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!

Trader number 18 is perhaps the smallest attending our show but is perfectly formed and rather interesting! Welcome back Second Thunder.

Second Thunder are the publishers of splendid Open Combat rule set – a game about close encounters between small groups of individuals. Due to the ‘close-up’ nature of the game you can apply a much more personal approach, putting your own flavour to things which is not appropriate in the more broad brush strokes required for larger engagement games.

If you get the chance we highly recommend you have a chat and a demo game with Carl.
