Hope the weather is a bit better this year. I'm looking forward to the show, first chance of the year to spand some serious money on new toys.

Great show, great organisation and a Table Top Sale! What more could you want

OK so anybody want to come and play tanks in the dessert? The KB club is waiting for you. Some of the tanks are painted really well (not by me obviously).

The Derby guys are putting on a game of Marsaglia 1693 (Nine years War in Savoy).

Using 28mm figures and slightly modified For King & Parliament rules by Simon Miller (To The Strongest).

Feel free to drop by for a game – to play a few turns – or for a chat. Table GA09

Best show of the year in my opinion. We've been looking forward to this for months. Shame they can't do another later in the year like Partizan!!

I am planning to come up from London by train, how easy is it to get to the venue from the station?

Just returned from another excellent show, many thanks to the organisers for all their hard work and to all the traders and games organisers. Special mention from me for the Doncaster gang who made us very welcome (as usual) and allowed my son to fairly thrash (with a little bit of assistance nudge nudge wink wink)them at Bolt Action. A splendid day, made all that much better by me winning first prize in the ticket draw (blush). I never win anything, well, until now. Roll on next year.
