Campaign is a small show (a handful of traders about 20 demo and participation games. Plus the team tournaments of course. The venue is a little bit unusual - in one of the halls in the middle of Milton Keynes shopping centre. It's free to enter and for the public to wander through (and join in the participation games if they wish - quite a few do).
The team tournaments this year (that i saw) were Art de la Guerre (ADLG - ancients & medievals), DBMM (also ancients & medievals), Field of Glory (FoG - another ancients & medievals), FoGR (renaissance; individuals rather than teams), Mortem et Gloriam (yet another ancients & medievals), and Sharpe Practice (Peninsular War). There was meant to be a Bolt Action tournament as well, but it seems they didn't get enough entrants.
I got there about 10.30am and had a wander round, taking pics of the participation and demo games before doing a spot of shopping and popping over the the ADLG tables to see how our club's teams were getting on. Our club made up three of the six teams, so I found that two of them were at that point in the club's second civil war of the weekend (later on there was a third club civil war).
The demo and participation games:
|I forgot to take a pic of their table?|
|The tournaments (well, some of them)|
|DBMM in 6mm|
|I thing this was Saga of Sharpe Practice in the Congo as well|
|CLWC Second Civil War|
|My buggy doesn't even reach the first gate!|
|Wiped out and facing the wrong way; carnage among the other buggies|
|Sneaky reverse and slide to face the right way|
|Not as classy as my reverse and slide|
|Beaten through gate 2, but my MG does the biz|
Having shot the leader out of the game and with my other opponent so far behind I was judged the winner. It was good fun and there was much carnage.
|CLWC Third Civil War|
Two foam trays for 28mm figures; two original pattern gates for Gaslands and a 3-pack (I think) of the new pattern gates; A bottle of Khaki Grey and one of Strong Tone wash.
Since getting home (and having resized all the pics) I didn't fancy starting to highlight the Aussies, so I opted for cutting out and beveling the edges of some scatter bases for the rusted cars to go on:
the next step will be sanding the edges. With the longer longer ones I'll also need to add something to help prevent them warping when I add basing texture, probably lengths of BBQ skewer.
