For those of you who were unable to attend this year, here is a complete walkthrough of SALUTE – the annual South London Warlords (UK) event.

This is the largest show on the UK's wargaming calendar. The photos show the demo and participation games that were staged throughout the one-day event at the prestigious EXCEL Centre in London's Docklands.

To give you a more complete walkthrough experience, I've interspersed photos of the trade stands among the demo & participation games.


All comments, corrections, and additional info welcomed.

You star Mr Dever…. :-) I think a few people have been hoping for this post after your efforts last year – thanks very much.

An amazing collection of pictures, thanks

battleeditor25 Apr 2010 12:27 p.m. PST

Fantastic pics, Joe. I can't believe how much I obviously missed! Great to meet you at long last as well.


Frothers Did It Anyway Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 12:29 p.m. PST

Your photo reports are almost as good as having been to these shows in person. Nice one!

Thanks Joe, great to see all those pics you took.

Ermintrude Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 12:39 p.m. PST

Wow, thanks!

MiniatureReview25 Apr 2010 1:21 p.m. PST

Wow. Thanks for all that work. It really helped seeing what was there. You put a lot of work into that and it shows.

I did notice

347: The Kyushu Bay Incident. Wigan Wargames.

The game that was being played was from Critical Mass Games.

Enzedmaster Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 1:51 p.m. PST

Thank you!

Could someone inform me what a "bring and buy" is?

Grizwald Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 2:13 p.m. PST

"Could someone inform me what a "bring and buy" is?"

You bring your stuff that you want to sell.
You queue up to register your stuff for sale.
You walk away clutching a little ticket.
Some hours later, you return and queue up again to collect your takings (less a commission, usually 10%) and any of your stuff that is unsold, in exchange for the little ticket.
Hopefully, you'll get all your unsold stuff back – some people have experienced some of their stuff going "missing" (though not necessarily at Salute).

Bring and buy = flea market.

It shows the size of the place – I don't remember seeing the sizeable Busaco game!

Wish I'd looked more closely at the Belgrade game, it looked good and the club has one or two people I know.

Stevus Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 2:22 p.m. PST

Nice pics.

The Kallistra terrain based games i thought looked very good, especially the castle walls.
Just can't see how i'd use them with the large Impetus bases though /sigh

Grizwald Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 2:26 p.m. PST

"Bring and buy = flea market"

No, not the same thing. See my description above. As I understand it, in a flea market you rent a table and sell your own stuff. In a bring and buy, someone else sells your stuff (for a commission).

Insomniac25 Apr 2010 2:30 p.m. PST

You take your stuff to the show and register it, the show sells it for you, the show takes a small cut of your profit (or in some cases you pay a small amount in advance) and then you get your money and go home…simple.

Joe; thank you for sharing, great pictures!

GoodBye Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 2:49 p.m. PST

Wow! Great photo essay, thank you.

Not identical, but the closest equivalent.

Steve Hazuka Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 3:14 p.m. PST

I stole a photo from you. #71 Alternative Armies. They were selling my rule book and I saw it on the table. Hope you don't mind.

Personal logo wrgmr1 Supporting Member of TMP25 Apr 2010 3:31 p.m. PST

Awesome, Thanks!!

Matheo25 Apr 2010 3:53 p.m. PST

Great pictures, thank you.

Jack Dempsey Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 3:54 p.m. PST

Thanks for the great photo's Joe as well as the very handy links to the product manufacturers

alien BLOODY HELL surfer25 Apr 2010 4:04 p.m. PST

Nice – but you missed two tables – WW1 subbuteo and Frotherheim

clifblkskull Supporting Member of TMP25 Apr 2010 4:09 p.m. PST

Fantastic Joe!
You are the best at letting me feel like I have been to a show.
Thank you so much,

Regrebnelle Inactive Member25 Apr 2010 4:12 p.m. PST

Now that's a show gallery! Great work, thanks!


Personal logo Der Alte Fritz Sponsoring Member of TMP25 Apr 2010 7:11 p.m. PST

Great picture show! It was almost as if I were there as I scrolled through the pictures. That Busaco scenery is amazing.

MarbotsChasseurs25 Apr 2010 7:15 p.m. PST

Awesome! Does anyone have the previews of the Perry Miniature Zouaves?

Titchmonster25 Apr 2010 7:57 p.m. PST

Thanks. Helps make up for the volcano hampering my attendance.

Oddball25 Apr 2010 8:13 p.m. PST

One of these years I will have to cross the pond and attend this convention.

Looks like a great time for all.

redmist112225 Apr 2010 8:47 p.m. PST

Speachless!!! Thanks for sharing those pics.

Thank you sooo much Joe!

Wargamer Blue25 Apr 2010 10:34 p.m. PST

Thanks for posting. The Red Hawk Down game looked good.

Atheling Inactive Member26 Apr 2010 1:41 a.m. PST

Wow! What a collection of illucidating pics…..

10 out of 10 for effort.


BigLee26 Apr 2010 1:58 a.m. PST

Fantastic set of pictures, thanks for sharing. I'm amazed at how fast you had these online…you couldn't have slept on saturday night! I'm still trying to edit and sort my pictures… captioning and labeling may take a while.

Thanks again for shawring these.

Grizwald Inactive Member26 Apr 2010 2:03 a.m. PST

Splendid set of pictures, Joe, many thanks. No shots of the Star Trek game?

valleyboy26 Apr 2010 2:05 a.m. PST

Thank you Joe
I was hoping you'd be there as I couldn't be!

morkin Sponsoring Member of TMP Inactive Member26 Apr 2010 2:45 a.m. PST

Thanks for the great effort. You got those up remarkably quickly. Wow.

For those of you who weren't there: Some tables/stands which Joe seems to have missed are: Hasslefree, Heresy, Studio McVey, Black Scorpion and Freebooter. To be fair, though, there is an awful lot going on at Salute, and it is very easy to overlook some stuff. I know I have. :-)

Steve Blease Inactive Member26 Apr 2010 3:06 a.m. PST

"you missed two tables WW1 subbuteo and Frotherheim"

It is practically impossible to cover everything, even the mighty Joe. I think I got both those in my photos but I certainly missed a lot Joe didn't!

shadow king26 Apr 2010 5:08 a.m. PST

fantastic pictures thank you..

alien BLOODY HELL surfer26 Apr 2010 5:35 a.m. PST

I was pulling Joe's leg :-)

The photo's were great, I didn't get to take a lot of pics, just a few games (the two mentioned) plus the one by the Atennociti stand which was awesome.

It would have been some effort to get every game photo'd let alone also adding in trade stands!

Palafox Inactive Member26 Apr 2010 6:45 a.m. PST

Does anyone know how to contact the guys that put up the Blenheim 1704 table, pls?. I'd like to ask them a couple of questions.

And thanks a lot for the effort of posting all these awesome photos Joe. Very much appreciated.

ubique1 Supporting Member of TMP26 Apr 2010 8:29 a.m. PST

Excellent, thanks a lot. Next year I'm definitely going.

richarDISNEY26 Apr 2010 9:35 a.m. PST

That was AWESOME!!!
But only 3 pages of pics? laugh
It was like being there. Thanks to you adding links to the sellers, I now have a few more companies to look at!

GUNBOAT26 Apr 2010 10:51 a.m. PST

You can contact one of the lads from the Blenheim game if you email our club web site and we will forward it on for you

Warlord26 Apr 2010 11:59 a.m. PST


Wishin I was there!

Grizwald Inactive Member26 Apr 2010 12:09 p.m. PST


Actually, it's a show, not a con. There are several differences, see here:

I very much enjoyed your photos (especially as I missed some of the best games), but I think you missed our Zama; photos here (just below the pre-game drinking shots). ;-)


Cheers, Simon

Feet up now Inactive Member26 Apr 2010 2:41 p.m. PST

Thanks for taking the time (your own aswell) to do these pictures.

pbishop1226 Apr 2010 6:50 p.m. PST

Drooled over the Busaco pictures. Very nice.

thehawk27 Apr 2010 2:26 a.m. PST

Thanks for the great pics. The trade stand pics are interesting too.
