We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended Salute; Traders, exhibitors and paying visitors, members of other clubs, Warlords & their families who help on the day - you all make Salute what it has become, a great show, with a great atmosphere (even in a hanger).
Also a shout out here to the bloggers who cover us, here are a few selected pictures from early blogs' coverage:
Lurkio - the thin high viz yellow line of Warlords scanners swamped by Wargamer warband....
Eric the Shed - pic of Fort George AWI game, won Best Game Scenery for the Essex Gamesters (as a tall ships nut, I loved all those ships!). The quality of this years games was the highest ever, made it very difficult to judge! We will put up other prize winners and more games pictures in future posts.
A Wargaming Gallimaufry - South London Warlords' Stingray! game
Don't Throw a 1 - South London Warlord's "Lake of Death" game - 1813, Araure - Bolivar's finest moment
We had quite a few requests as to where the teddy bear fur we used as grass came from - its from Craft-Fabrics (follow link to site)
Big Lee's Miniature Adventures - Space Marine & Guardsman to scale
Tenfiguresaweek - Old Guards Waterloo game, gets prize for "most figures per square inch of table space"
Highlight of my day was having to take Richard Bodley-Scott (yes, that Richard) to his stand - they seemed to have mislaid him ;)
The traders were very happy, so we hope everyone's bank balances recover soon....
We hope to see everyone again next year (rumours of Salute's demise being etc etc)
