So SELWG 2009 came and went last weekend.
Overall the day was excellent fun and it was great to be back at such a wonderful show.
There are several things that stand out for SELWG above Salute.
- The lighting is massively better, which aids photography no end.
- The venue was smaller, which creates a more intimate feel to the show, which gives more time to talk to the public and actually play a demo game.
- Free parking!
The only downside I noticed was the fact there were less traders, though there was still an excellent selection.
Here's a shot of the main floor at about 2pm.
Loughton Strike Force - Best Demo Game & Best in Show
Continuing their fine tradition of show tables LSF produced an excellent looking table depicting a Russian attack on Nazi German positions.
This table walked away with Best Demo Game and Best in Show!
And here are the club members accepting their trophies.
Best Demonstration Game.
Best in Show.
Shepway Wargame Club - Best Scenery
Another WWII themed table, this was an excellently created game called "The Hochwald Gap - 1945" and a well deserved winner in a very tough category.
Diamond Geezers - Best Participation Game
This table was very popular with young and old alike, but alas I have no photos of the table iself :(
I do however have their trophy shot.
