I've Been To: Broadside 2018

It's a couple of years since I last popped down to Sittingbourne for Broadside, so it was about time I paid another visit. There were also a couple of things I wanted to buy from traders who'd be there which would save me some postage.

I got there just before 11am and after a quick chat with Clint did a tour of the game tables to take pics, stopping for a chat with a few people along the way. And then I did a tour of the traders.

Pics of games:

Echidna Games - Laserblade


Emotionally 14 - Heroclix

Uncon Tabletop Convention - various boardgames

Spanish Skies - SCW Air Combat

Spanish Skies - SCW Air Combat

Skirmish Wargames - By Crom!

Deal Wargames Society - "The Grass Is Always Greener"

The horror! The horror!

Friday Night Fire Fight Club - Reign Of Fire

Shepway Wargames Club - Battle of Bure, January 1945

SEEMS - Surprise at Lanchlon II (Battlefleet Gothic)
It appears that I didn't take pics of the game from Milton Hundreds Wargames Club and possibly the one from Valhalla Wargames Society (unless that's the one captioned "?????") - I must have been distracted. Possibly by some of Clint's fudge.

I ended up leaving just after 1pm, having seen all the games, bought all the things and talked to all the people (OK, some of the things, some of the people).

Which means it must be time for the loot pics:

20mm bulding(s) from Blotz for Gaslands

Nice price markdown from PE2 Collectables

Decals for Gaslands

Leopard 2A5 against a Hotwheels for size - I think it'll work for Gaslands!
The savings I made on postage and on those Bolt Action bits more than covered the cost of my train fare down to Kent, so I'm a happy bunny.


  1. Cool, nice looking games and loot

  2. Looks like you have a good day out and a smashing haul of loot too!

  3. Looks like a great day out.
    There must have been signs in weird places as SEEMs aactually bought the Gothic game.

  4. Cool looking games on display. Nice bit loot really liking the Leopard tank.

  5. The Horrors!
    The chariot game was from Andy at De gobbos grotto.

    1. Hahah literally typed that at the same time Ray, thanks for playing earlier.....we let Lee win.....

  6. Hi Tamsin, the chariot racing was actually my game, not Milton Hundred club

  7. Some great looking games. Nice loot Tam.

  8. @ Martin - cheers! :)

    @ Michael A - I did thanks! :)

    @ Mike C - it was, even if I spent twice as long travelling as I did at the show :)
    As for my captioning of the games, I was going from the floorplan, which was (mostly) correct :)

    @ Simon Q - cheers! :)

    @ Ray - quite appropriate I thought! ;)

    @ Andy - apologies, I was going by the floorplan :)

    @ Carl - cheers! :)

  9. Looks like a very nice day out - and your loot hall is most impressive

    Well done!

  10. Good event as usual but down on visitors I thought, sorry to have missed you Big Lee first 'blogger' ive met having missed meet ups at other shows

  11. Wonderful! Love those graffiti decals.

  12. Good to see you Sunday. Such a tiring day but good fun.

  13. @ Miles - it was pleasant :)

    @ Fraxinus - apparently the attendance was slightly up, so maybe there was a constant churn of people leaving and arriving which made it seem lower? Lee's a nice chap, despite my caption :)

    @ Curt - those weren't on my shopping list, but I had to buy them :)

    @ Lee - and good to see you too :)
