Salute 2014

Well, that was the show, that was..... Hope you all had a good day out and bought loads of new toys - I know I did.

Congratulations to John, Chris, Graham and Dave W. for a well presented game with striking scenery and some excellent figures. Unfortunately, the game did not win any prizes but with the bar set so high at Salute, I do not consider this a slur in any way.
As you all know, this is the last game that the frantic Four are presenting on behalf of SEEMS; I think I can safely say that they went out on a high! Thanks again lads, and the very best with future game projects.

See yer soon,

Another good day at Salute - Rob and I managed to actually play a couple of games this year too, rather than just spending too much cash!

First few shots are from the games we played - "Deads Army" run by the Peterborough Wargames Club and "Hell & High Water" (we called it "Hell Comes to Ducktown") by Fenris Games. Both were great fun.

"Deads Army" featured Otto Skorzeny raising the dead near Walmington on Sea only to be put down by Captain Mainwaring and his trusty Home Guard!

The evil Skorzeny raises the dead...

The unsuspecting sleepy suburb of Walmington.

Home Guard to arms!

"Don't Panic!" Jones is surrounded by the undead at the church!
For more on this and a write up of the game see Robafetts blog.

"Hell & High Water" took place in a Gloranthan style setting where a group of Heroes defend a dam protecting Ducktown from attack by the undead. The unlikely heroes featured two Ducks (one an archer, the other a warrior capable of warping into a Duckotaur) and a group of humans including a druid who could shift into a were-rabbit form upon the eating of magic mushrooms! Nobody said this would be an ordinary game!

The warriors held off the horde of undead, loosing one warrior and Tom 'Ruddy' the Duck archer saved the day on the last turn, taking out the only creature that had reached the dam and was close to pulling it down, just before the sun rose.

This was a superb game, simple to play with loads of character and originality with a beautiful board and wonderful figures.

The 'Wererabbit' leaps into action.
Lastly, a few pics from some other games on the day. Unfortunately I didn't get too many pics this year, especially of the SEEMS game as I was too busy chatting and playing but hopefully Rob has a load more.
