Much more fun than the World Cup final

16 July 2018

We had both had more than enough of the World Cup and Wimbledon, so it was with some relief we took the train to Sheffield for our true passion - wargaming.

Peter Berry from Baccus 6mm not only organised the event with his team, but was trading busily from the start of the show, emerging occasionally to host a couple of seminars.

There were traders aplenty and the food and refreshments were top class thanks to the services laid on by Sheffield Hallam University  - a very good venue indeed.

But of course, at the heart of the event were the games themselves. There were more than 25 on show, all heavily supported.

Here are some of the highlights that caught our attention. . . 

Raid on Zeebrugge

They said it could not be done in 1'300th scale, so I had to do it. And I have"

Battle of Korka

Per Broden is a one-man army creator. His battle features more than 200 bases, acrylic map and terraine

Battle of Manchester 1642

This battle is famous for the Parliamentarian officer shot in Deansgate from the Cathedral Tower


The game can change on one decision and a dice roll. Very exciting to watch - particularly when the elephants get involved

Hastings 1066AD

Really impressive. Great board and terraine and fantastic figures

We are putting together our own participation game on the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Hopefully, we will be at Joy of Six in 2019. We look forward to seeing you there. . .
