Colours moved to a 1 day show a couple of years ago and I think it's all the better for it. It seemed pretty busy but, as it is spread over 3 large floors of the racecourse it never felt overcrowded...apart from the Bring and Buy which as usual was a sea of backpacks and fetid wargamers. I managed to worm through to the front a couple of times but didn't spot any great bargains.
I'd gone with a pretty tight shopping list and, for once, actually stuck to it! I bought some MDF buildings from Sarissa and Blotz for my Japanese and Cowboy projects but that (apart from a coffee) was that.
On to the photos. As usual I missed loads and only snapped a few shots of games that caught my eye. I thought the range of games on offer was pretty impressive...apologies to those that I missed or who I haven't credited.
A lot of the games were quite modest in scale but there were a couple of exceptions. This is one of them: For King And Parliament by Simon Miller:
This was a demo of Spectre Ops:
Another of the larger games, this is The Retreat from Moscow but Wessex Games:
My favourite of the show! This is a WW1 game set in the Middle East by Adrian Shepherd. Very impressive and lots of nice little dioramas within the game itself:
A Sharp Practice Boshin Wars game
There were a few Cold War games...this was one but I don't have the detail on who or what:
The Spectre ops game again:
Another of my favourites...a really nice WW2 desert game by Maidenhead Reapers featuring a LRDG raid on an airfield:
