About Me

My photo
London, United Kingdom, United Kingdom
A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

  1. Wow, some lovely games there! - Thanks for posting all the pics!!!

  2. Some truly great looking games on show Tamsin, thank you for taking the time to capture them all for the rest of us to see.

  3. That is a lot of games, if only I liked in the UK! Thanks for taking the time to psot them.

  4. Thank you Tamsin, great to see the show circuit active.

  5. Some very excellent games on display! I still struggle with the whole participation / non participation game issue thats seems to be a UK thing. Any conventions I've attended here in North America are all player sign up games to participate in. They are usually run by companies, groups, or individuals. Looks to have been a great outing!

  6. Why were you not wearing masks?

  7. @ Herkybird - you're welcome! :)

    @ Dave - cheers! :)

    @ John - it's a mere drop in the ocean compared to some shows. :)

    @ Norm - it is good that shows are going on again now. :)

    @ Terry - I suspect the reason for the difference is that in the UK everyone is much closer geographically and we have clubs very local
    to most people so when we attend shows there is less desire to actually play games, whereas in the US for some/many it is only at shows that they get to play with other people. :)

    @ Ray - thanks! :)

    @ Simon - Some were, most weren't. The venue didn't require it, nor did the organisers. It was very well ventilated and spacious, so the risks were low.

  8. Thank you Tamsin for your posts, very much appreciated for those of us unable to attend. Excellent blog.

    Willz Harley.

  9. Did you get to play in anything or were you more focused on taking pictures - which you did quite well. More importantly did you have a good time?

  10. @ Willz - cheers! Glad you liked my photo report! :)

    @ Jerry - sadly, no - all the participation games I was interested in were full up whenever I passed by. I did have a good time! :)

  11. Wow, it’s great to see posts like this once again with all of the gaming goodness going on again, it’s been a while - thanks for taking and paying the pictures.
