Coming soon to Sunny Sheffield…

Yes, it's that time of year again! The Joy of Six 2017 is just a few weeks away and we thought you'd like to hear about what's on offer.

JOS17 will be held on Sunday 16th July from 10.00am to 4.00pm. The venue is the spectacular Heartspace Atrium at Sheffield Hallam University. This City centre location is near to cheap on-street parking and a hop skip and a jump or two away from Sheffield mainline railway station and travel interchange. Entrance will be a measly £3.00 GBP.

Right. That's the boring bit out of the way. What's on offer?

We've got some of the finest small scale traders in the world under one roof:

Baccus 6mm
Brigade Games
Britannicus Games
Commission figurines
Games at War
G S Miniature workshop
Heroics and Ros
Leven Miniatures
Wargames Emporium

Plus a Bring and Buy. We're trying to squeeze a couple more into the show, so stay posted.

Yes, that's the retail therapy bit, but what about the games you ask? Well, have we got some treats for you. More games than last year and with a very wide spread of subjects:

Grantham Strategy and Gaming Club – WW2 8th Air Force

Robert Dunlop – Messines 2017

Per Broden – Lesnaya 1708

Per Broden – Sharp Practice FIW

Dan Hodgson – Waterloo

Wyre Forest Wargamers – Battle of Issus

Sheffield Wargames Society – Platoon Commanders War

RAF Cranwell gaming club – Mech Wars

South London Warlords – Neustadt Crossing 1985

SAD wargamers – Operation Crusader

Deeside Defenders – 1st Bull Run

Luton Lancers – Fall of Katzbach 1813

Cold War Commanders – Landjut 1989

Baccus 6mm – Salford 1642

Mailed Fist – Last Train to Berlin

MADgamers – Eastern Front 1700

Wakefield and District Gamers – WW2

SeaBee games – Operation Bargation

Britannicus games – Horizon Wars

Bradford Battletech Battalion – Battletech

Commission Figurines – Napoleonic

Wyre Forest Wargamers – Hold the Line (AWI)

Brigadier General Commands – Montelimar 1944

Andrew Brentnall – ECW, the battle of Lessie's Moor

Well over two thirds of these games will be participation events, so there will be plenty to do while you are the show. We'll have the usual masterclass in 6mm painting from Dr Mike and the traditional seminar programme.

There will be lots of good quality, wargamer-friendly, pig-derived food on offer. What more could you want from a wargames show?

I'll be posting more details about the show and and the games as we get nearer to the date.

As if all of this were not enough, we'll also be running our ever-popular Baccus workshop tours on the Saturday before the show (15th July). Places are limited and fill up very quickly. If you want to book yourselves on to this year's tour, please get in touch asap to reserve your place.

Great show which has got better each year. Even if you don't normally play 6mm games give it a go, there are usually some terrific games on show.
