Colours 2019 - The Games

As promised yesterday, here are the pics I took of the various games at Colours 2019. There was one game - the Ministry of Gentlemanly warfare's "Thud and Blunder" - which I didn't take pics of as it was the vary same one that was at Partizan the other week. OK, you could say the same about the "To The Strongest" Mancetter game and it would be a "fair cop, guv'nor!" - I simply forgot to take photos of it.

On with the pics...

A rather poorly lit photo of the competition gaming area. I believe it was an Infinity tournament.

Boscombe Down & Amesbury - Ducks & Dwarves

Maidenhead Reapers - 28mm WW2 Tanks

South London Warlords - Dark Side Of The Moon

Not sure who, not sure what

Deeprose - Battle of Gabienne

Penarth & District Wargames Society - 40mm AWI Skirmish

Naval Wargames Society - Stingray

Friends of Rapid Fire - Sainte Mere Eglise Counter-Attack

Contact Front - Operation Enduring Freedom

This was the club I mentioned yesterday who were asked late in the day if they could put on a game after all. They did a good job of putting together this one (including making some terrain) in just a few days and were very happy to chat to me about it.
