Vapnartak 2020 Show Report from Wargames Illustrated
The Grimsby Wargames Society made it into the Wargames Illustrated issue 389 with our Battle of Dnieper.
Don't be misled into thinking all the good stuff was on the ground floor: the quality of games at Vapnartak 2020 was uniformly excellent. Take Grimsby Wargames Society's Battle of the River
Dnieper set in 1943 and using adapted Rapid Fire rules for example. The vehicles were mainly Pendraken, and the buildings scratchbuilt, including the best prop in the show, which was a cinema using an iphone as a screen! Other buildings had LED flames, while all around an air-war raged with a Stuka emerging from the backboard “sky’. It was hardly surprising they couldn’t get the game played properly with so many people peering into the table and cooing over the details.
