The Colours mini-guide finally went up on our web site on Saturday morning. See the Colours 2017 tab. If there are any questions regarding it or the show, please see the Contact tab or post a question here.

2016 visitors will be pleased to hear that this year we are opening car parks on _both_ sides of the Bollards of Doom so access will be possible from both sides of the racecourse. Our main entrance will be from the A4 and there's a map up on the web site. It's still not possible to drive from one side to the other, so traders must use the A4 entrance as per Tony's instructions.

Sorry to be the first to point out an error, but the download does not show that Simon Miller and I are putting on an 1,800 figure, 10mm scale, demonstration/participation game of our upcoming ECW rule set "For King & Parliament!". The game is the fictional Battle of Lessie's Moor in early 1643, and pits some very motley local Royalists, together with a flying column from Oxford, against the armoured might of Parliament's Borsetshire malcontents! Come and have a look.

The mini guide says Colours 2016 both on the guide and the page…….

Mollinary, what club or group name are Simon and yourself appearing under? It's too late to amend the printed show guide, but we can post a correction on the door. I will follow up with my Clubs & Demos officer.

Boscombe and Amesbury will be presenting Artifact Obelisk (Antares) at the show – they're also missing from the guide.

The Blood & Plunder competition has been cancelled, so we are not short of tables or space although the Infinity competition has expanded slightly.

Mike of Black Hat, I've looked over the download and the supporting web page and I can't see any 2016 references – could you please re-check and direct me to the points where it appears? The guide went up on the 9th, so it's unlikely that you were reading a cached copy.

Mike, I've dug through our web site and now realise that all of the 2016 material is still up. The 2017 material is present at and linked via the top menus but a search might misdirect you to the old 2016 page. I'll speak to my webmaster.

Due to factors beyond their control, Battlezone have had to cancel their attendance at Colours this year.

Errata for the show guide: the Plastic Soldier Company has changed places with Parkfield and Simple Miniatures.

The ECW game announced by Mollinary can be found at the east (Competition) end of the second floor.

I shan't post it here, but the WiFi code can be found on notices on the first floor. This is the first year it's been generally available, so we'll see how well the venue network handles the load.

Thanks guys for all the hard work organising the show. All was well when we arrived to set up, we had a good table and attracted a lot of interest all day.
