I arrived at 8:45 and parking was a snap. I had pre registered so avoided a line of about 40 chaps and again walked right up. Unlike salute, no goody bag to speak of but you did get a wargame figure of an SS tank commander. Unfortunately, 28mm as was much of the show but I do appreciate the effort. ( Historicon take note, at Salute several years ago a got a D6, very cool and scale neutral.) A lot of vendors ( was told as many as last year) but unfortunately for me very few sold figures in 15mm; Battlefront and Old Glory was selling Command Decision. I did get a bag of T-55s but no Celts or Trebuchets. Miniature Building Authority was selling their 15mm stuff half off so pick up several items. ( Should have picked up the Russian village as well.)
On to the games!
Here was a game set in the Congo so I was interested. Board looked great. Rules are forthcoming. Will stick with my Combat Patrol/ FOF combo
I watch Men of Company B for about 20 minutes. The mechanics are different and interesting. Teh concepts are easy and because of this it plays smooth. It is really focused more on the squad than on the fireteam. Still I am tempted to pick this up and it was fun.
So that is a quick report. I was biased towards WW II and beyond. There was everything there from ancients up to 2 x-wing battles.
So when I got home last night I didn't have the men of company "B" but...
