2016 wrap Part One - Wargamer in Halesowen

Assembling my review of the year in advance of 2017s first shows at Hammerhead and Alumwell, I stumbled on a 'lost wargames show' - a fully edited album of pictures from Wargamer in Halesowen that never made it to the blog.

Apologies to the organisers - it was a great day out and continues to be an excellent local show:

Plenty to do as you can see ...

I gave the Tony Bath Hyboria game a final outing ... it stimulated quite a lot of interest so thanks to everyone who came over and shared in the nostalgia ...


(Society of Ancients nostalgia: 1960s flats originally by Phil Barker and Tony Bath)

(Hyboria at Wargamer 2016)

(Phil Steele's Tony Bath game for the Society of Ancients)

(the Tony Bath Hyboria wargame)

There was also a very nice ancients game put on in the modern idiom by slingshot Stalwart Ade G - in glorious 6mm (well worth some pictures):

Excellent ... beautiful massed effects ...

Elsewhere at Wargamer 2016 (yes there was more):

... and the December weather was good too - cold but not wintry ... such a gem of a show I assume it is weather worries that explain its relatively low turn out.

See you there next year, though ... hey, showgoers?

I thought I posted the most delayed report for this show but you have easily stolen my crown. Nice photos and it is a nice show, hopefully it will be on this year.

Thanks, Matt ... it's good to excel ;) ... actually just a complete oversight on my part but when I found the unpublished pictures it seemed sensible to share ...

See you in December (or more likely before then at Alumwell ;) ...)
