Salute 2015

I also made it to Salute  this year  and as usual was overwhelmed by the depth and breadth of our hobby.  In addition to the huge range  of  games and activities on display  the friendly atmosphere  was  a great reflection on the wargaming community.

This year  a friend of mine accompanied me who knew nothing about war-games. Indeed,  the week before he asked me tentatively  if he could come and watch a game at some point, because he was interested  in finding out more  a bout the hobby.  I thought to myself, that he should  possibly want to come to see Salute, that will give him a better idea about war-games. As you might imagine he  was quite surprised  by  the size and the scale of the whole affair!

In any case here are a few snaps to of some of the games and displays  I saw or played in  during  the day.

An outstanding Early World War II game  depicting a German assault on  a coastal town 

Some shots of  Donnington Figures participation game of Agincourt which played by our chums from Central London Wargames Club. 

Finally A fun fast and furious medieval game using Osprey's Lion Rampart rules organised  by the Blackwolf Wargames Club of Hitchin. 


  1. So what did your friend make of it? Was he enticed? If so, by what?

    1. He was very impressed by the range of games and the level of detail in the demo games, he was particularly interested in historic games ancient , American Civil War and World War One. And he is looking forward to attending the show again next year. So I guess he was enticed.
