Being the largest on the european mainland, we had more then 125 traders, 60 clubs and 2000 visitors this year, thanks everyone for participating!
Since yesterday, the build up had been undertaken, and then at 10 in the morning, the doors swung open for the 2019 edition.
With this huge a selection of traders, that meant there was a LOT for everyone's taste and wallet (my "scores" are for a post later this week, probably on monday).
So here is an oversight of the traders present, with of course the odd comment inserted here and there...
But a wargame show is more then just buying, it's all about camaraderie, and of course, GAMES, so let's have a look at the games on show, in both picture and video coverage.
Militia Brabantia using home made rules based on the Assassin's Creed videogame
A large table by Alde Garde
Two games brought by the Salute guys
A very nice looking trench warfare battle
A truly massive table by Old Pickey's
The Berserkir game mixed in a lot of ranges to bring a battle based on Norse mythology
I followed the progress on these ships through the Heroes's facebook posts, but it is still great to see it "for real"
There was also the annual Bring and Buy of course
And the inner person could be satisfied thanks to our catering.
The show also hosted awards for those games of course, and a jury consisting of Chairman Johan, Honourable Chairman Willie and yours truly (who they still have to find an actual function for), went around and judged the games during the day, and listened to the comments of visitors and club members alike. And it was a close affair, as only one of the winners was chosen by unanimous vote.
And here are the results as such:
For Best Presented Wargame: Militia Brabantia with their Assassin's Creed based game
The winner and yours truly
For Best Participation Game: need we say more, Too Fat Lardies with Smoke on the Water
Richard and Johan
For Most Innovative Game: World War 1 Trench Warfare by Ad Arma
The Ad Arma team and Willie
And as such, the show dwindled to an end, and after the break down it was time for the buffet and filling the by now very hungry attendees.
Thanks again everyone who made this show another big success!
