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).

Salute 2024 - The Games (Lots..and lots...and lots of pics)

As promised yesterday, here are the photos I took of all* the games.

* I may have missed some

I will apologise in advance for the quality of some of the photos - the lighting in the hall was rather variable and my camera didn't always focus properly.

Now go and make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee.
