Pics from Wappinshaw 2012

So today (2 June 2012) was the Wappinshaw show in Glasgow organised by the Phoenix Wargames Club. Probably the smallest of the shows held regularly in Scotland but still a busy, wee event with a good atmosphere.

Here are some pics of some of the tables on display, as always in no particular order of preference and apologies if I mis-label anything -

Gourock Wargaming Association - The Battle of Kunersdorf (15mm)






Falkirk & District Wargames Club - The Battle of Heligoland Bight (1/3000th)
May not look like much but two thumbs up to the Falkirk Guys for taking the time to talk to us about the game!





Glasgow Wargames Club - "Check Your 6" (1/300th)




Solway Miniatures "A Very British Civil War" (28mm)







Phoenix Wargames Club - The Battle of Ascalon 1099 (28mm)







South East of Scotland Wargames Club - The Battle of Oriskany 1777 (28mm) - Again thanks to the guys for taking time out from their games to talk about it







Glasgow Gaming Club - "Empire of the Dead" (32mm)






Bathgate Wargames Club - "Highwayman" (28mm)



Kirriemuir Wargames Club - Malifaux (32mm) - Sorry guys I thought I had taken more pictures of the game but they must have been on Cammie's phone!



Apologies to Crooked Dice who were demoing their 7TV game - I didn't get any pictures of this mainly because it was so busy round the demo table (which is quite small) I couldn't get near it. Likewise I would have liked to have taken more close ups of the Empire of the Dead table but it was again very busy - always a sign of good game.

I also had the chance to chat with Hendrid of the ALBAtwo Warblog so that was good to meet up with another blogger and put a face to the name.

Thanks to Phoenix Wargames Club for running another good show, hopefully it has been another success for them.

Next Show in Scotland - Claymore in Edinburgh, Saturday August 4, 2012. See you there!

    1. I note from the Wappinshaw Blog that Dumbarton Wargames Club were supposed to have been there, but if they were I completely missed them! - so apologies if they were there.

  4. You guys are spoiled over there, in the UK, with all the gaming shows you get. We have two a year here, in Colorado. Those were some great looking tables and games.

    1. There is a pretty full calendar of shows throughout the year in the UK.

      The shows in Scotland are small compared with some of the big shows in England such as Salute and Triples but at least you have more chance of seeing everything
