Other Partizan

I have returned safely with a minimal of impulse buys, Ainsty crowd barriers being the main one. Purchase wise I've had a successful show. I managed to pick up Wargames Factory women survivors, and Great War's Crimean War Coldstream Guards command from Dave Thomas. Other Ainsty purchases were the Crooked Dice Man from 2000 I want to use for a Blakes 7 game and a Dr Who game. GB & SD models supplied me with the Pegasus KV1's I was after and Valiant Minis/Rapid Fire publications solved my lack of German radio truck and ambulance. North Star came up trumps and I finally got my hands a Copplestones' Evil Genius's, providing me a a cyborg Fuhrer for my Moon Nazis. All I have to do is make and paint them!

The show was better laid out than earlier this year but still had pinch points that made it feel very busy as I went round. However when I went back through the halls/rooms is quite quiet considering it was 1pm. The games on display were up to a great standard, lots of great figures, terrain and game ideas. The view of games is always subjective but I liked them a lot, and now the piccies:

RAF Wargames Association 28mm Blakes 7. Great looking game which is a repeat of the game from the last Partizan show. My picture clarity will improve after I realised I had the camera on the wrong setting.

  3. Thanks for taking all the photos! I was too busy to see many of them, but agree that Entebbe was jaw-dropping... I wish I'd seen 1672, that looks like a stunner, too.

    Cheers, Simon
