Held in the village of Merelbeke, the size and the venue are those of the fun kind, not to immense (like, our Crisis show for example) giving you a good chance for a chat and a look at games.
There was a dozen traders present (where we found some good deals, see below) and about two dozen demonstration and participation games. Entry was a modest 7 euros, and as you can see in the video of my loot below, I also bought two of the Gamer's Guild dice to "support the cause".
To give an example of the chatting, I was only 15 minutes there when I was talking to someone I never seen before about 6mm and 40k gaming, and how I am blessed with a GF with an intrest in the hobby.
The bring and buy had some fun things, while not to large, like this 16+ hentai cardgame...
But let`s have a look at the games then...
Adeptus Titanicus, a game that intrests both me and Nemesis, was on display. We are still contemplating buying the actual game, or at least the titans up to the Reaver in size for Future War Commander.
A lot of games had world war 2 as a theme, so inserted amongst all the pictures here, you will see various battles, mostly in scale 28mm. Skirmish games like Bolt Action are really popular these days.
A 35mm Batman game using MDF buildings and the Noble models.
Death in the Dark Continent
Gasslands demo by The Puppeteers
A sportsy game, with Obelix clearing the pitch...
A Song of Ice and Fire, lovely models, but way to expensive for my taste.
Goblinolympics in full swing
A mighty impressive Star Wars Legion game
Mantic's Kings of War gamesystem
There was also a large variety of boardgames being presented
Napoleonics was well presented as well at the convention, as I saw a few games being played.
Berserkir's Norse mythology fantasy game
A 54mm wild west game
Flames of war Travel edition
A game for the younger players was presented as well, to introduce them to the lovely hobby of ours.
A battle of the American War of Independence
Frostgrave also had a table present
A fantastical arena battle game
Our clubs Star Wars Legion game
Ancient naval battle
The French Indian Wars, featuring a gorgeous fort
So those are the pictures I took of the various games and the event itself, so that brings us only to the last remaining thing to show... my loot, in YouTube style this time around...
A good start of the convention year for sure, and a well filled early part of the day (we left around 14hrs, as we both had still other things to do as well). Nice atmosphere, good dealings... what else does one need...
