Hammerhead Show Photos - Pictures Of The Games

I don't have much time, today, so I'm going to upload all of the photo's I took yesterday and then will come back to them when I can and label them etc.
"Show photos from Hammerhead. I don't like to intrude on games, so these aren't very 'zoomed-in', I also like to get the overall view of the table (detritus included) as that's the nuts-and-bolts of the hobby to my mind. I've blanked out the faces of any children captured in the photos - I tried my hardest to minimise their inclusion, but in some cases it was unavoidable. Looking at the photo's taken, I believe I missed two games - I can only apologies to these clubs/groups."
If you click on the photo's, they should enlarge.














































































































































As I said, I'll come back to this blog post and properly label and sort it out, when I've more time.

      If you've access to Facebook, Wargames Soldiers and Strategy magazine have some good (detailed) photo's of some of the games - including information.

    1. @Clint: Thanks Clint.

      Bit indifferent to the show, if I'm honest - But I don't really like going to shows. I definitely preferred this one to York, last month.

      I'm going up to Dumfries next weekend to a smaller show. I wouldn't be surprised if I don't find that to be my favourite, so far this year. Small show, small venue, a few traders and some good games. I don't really care for the larger shows.

    2. I agree and for that very reason I will NOT be going to Salute this year.

    1. @Mario Morrhaye: Thank you. I liked the Ancients games best, but I've got an interest in Ancients at the moment as I'm painting Ancient Germans to fight Romans.

    1. @Norm: Thank you. Yes, I got a few ideas from what I saw on Saturday. Speaking with Malc from the Victorian Steel Forum (the Mogadishu game) I can't wait to see his Medieval Russian fort - its meant to be MASSIVE, apparently.

    1. @Michael Awdry: Yes, it was a good show. I'm up at Scotland next weekend, so there'll be photos from that show, too.

  6. what a great mix of games, though some do look they've been lifted striaght from a normal game, rather than a purpose mad show one (if that makes sense).
    I too like seeing how well a game is presented with charts, dice, tins, cups inevidence.

    1. @Zabadak: Yep, I know what you mean.
      Its surprising how many useful things you spot, when looking at what people use to play or transport their game. Its something that gets overlooked - When I was at Redcar Ironbeards club the other week, sitting and watching logistics of transporting and (un)packing the bits reminded me what I, myself, needed to do. It being so long since I've played as a club member I'd forgotten all about that aspect of a club night. That's how I knew about KR Multicases for X-Wing games, and went to confirm what I needed at the show.

  7. Great photos. Our group ran the Wicker Man game. Would you mind if I used your photos of the game for my blog? Cheers John

    1. @John S: Certainly, please do. I've no problems with you using the photos. Use as many as you like, from the full selection if you wish. I would have taken more of your game, but as can be seen, your table was busy playing and I didn't like to interfere.
      Thank you.
