Salute 2018 Trip Report

Salute is the largest wargames show in the UK and, for me, a chance to visit London, see the sights, catch up with other wargamers and then escape within 24(ish) hours with a bag full of lead and future plans made. Since going to my first in 2015 as I rejoined the hobby, I've eagerly … Continue reading Salute 2018 Trip Report

Impressions: Scatter Terrain Part 2

In my previous Scatter Terrain post, I looked at everything resin. Now however, we move onto the world of MDF.

Of course, as a wargamer, … Continue reading Impressions: TTCombat HGV Truck

Impressions: Scatter Terrain Part 1

Strictly speaking, terrain isn't technically needed for a wargame - a few pieces of cardboard with labels on can play the role of buildings and walls.

While big buildings and rolling hills help shape the gameplay and draw the eye, smaller … Continue reading Impressions: Scatter Terrain Part 1
