Vapnartak, York, Wargames Show 2017
For us it's the first show of the year and definitely something to look forward to and I can genuinely say that this show did not disappoint, plenty of Traders and it was extremely well supported by people attending.
I got some World War II German infantry samples from Magister Militum and some Russian World War II naval infantry pendraken miniatures.
And a few other bits and bobs which you can see in the pictures on the whole it was a relatively cheap outing, As I'm trying not to buy too much this year and concentrate on all the unfinished lead piles I have.
Goodies from Pendraken Miniatures
Goodies from Magister Militum
I really do enjoy rummaging around the tabletop sale, Although I only bought one thing for fifty pence
There were some extremely good demonstrations / participation games being played, but I could only see one 10mm game in the entire show, Of which I took a couple of photos of which you can see below.
Brompton Bankers, Battle of Es Sinn
The game is a recreation of the Battle of Es Sinn, sometimes known as the 1st Battle of Kut, which took place on 28 Sep 1915 during the early stages of the Campaign in Mesopotamia, modern day Iraq. The Anglo-Indian 6th (Poona) Division were advancing northwards astride the River Tigris only to be delayed by the Ottoman 6th Army (in reality little more that a Division of mainly unreliable Arab troops) just outside the town of Kut-al-Amara. We are using our own DBA style rules, provisionally entitled DBWW1 in the Middle East.
