Phew! That's the lot!


  1. Thanks for sharing Tamsin, always amazed at how much work you put in to photograph all the games at a show

  2. Nice pics! Some really great looking games. Really like that Dino Hunt table with the volcano.

  3. So many great looking games Tamsin, thank you for sharing these.

  4. I'm so jealous (as usual). We have no public meetings like this in my country.

  5. Thanx for sharing, some interesting games there.

  6. Great photos Tamsin, and great to ses you again.

  7. That is a really lovely set of games!

  8. good looking set of games there. I like that most of them have that "I could do that" feel.

  9. Diversified and great looking tables, splendid show!

  10. Wonderful set of pictures. The battlescape of Belgium circa WWI was a real winner - I understand it won best in show for terrain. As I looked at it I wondered if you let your imagination ask the question "I wonder how my newly painted paras would do on this battlefield?"

  11. @ Dave Stone - thanks! It really doesn't take that long to take photos of the games, which I'd be looking at anyway - resizing them and doing the post takes longer! :)

    @ Simon Q - cheers! The dino hunt does look a fun game :)

    @ Michael A - you're welcome! :)

    @ Moif - thanks! :)
    That's a shame about you not having any shows like these :(

    @ Hendrid - definitely some interesting games :)

    @ Ray - thanks! Good to see you again too :)

    @ Herkybird - it was a good mix :)

    @ Marinergrim - they do have that look, don't they? :)

    @ Phil - yup, a good variety :)

    @ Paul's Bods - it was good enough to win "Best Scenery" :)

    @ Jerry - thanks! Not for that game, but I was thinking along those lines for the "Get Me To The Church On Time" table! :)
