Salute 2016

Well, I'm sat on a bus, chugging along the motorway, returning home from the Salute show. Now seems as good a time as any to put a posting together. Again, apologies for not crediting each game and who made it, however I hope that they appear in this posting is a favorable thank you from myself to them all. Here are some pictures of some of the games

One of the games I was personally looking out for was Spartan games 'Halo Ground Command'. I wasn't disappointed in that a game/diorama was there to display the painted miniatures. Whilst the rules seem straight forward and not particularly revolutionary, the models definitely capture the spirit of the video game. Here are some pictures for those interested...

Now for some pictures of some of the other games...

Finally, another point of personal interest was the McVey Studios stand. I'm waiting patiently on a Kickstarter for a boardgame called 'The Others' which features some fantastic, if a little macabre, miniatures which have been sculpted by Mike McVey. An expansion to the game called Apocalyspse has some stunning miniatures which were previewed at the show. Here they are:

Personal buys were quite small; new Osprey Sci-fi rules (Horizon Wars), two boardgames (7 Wonders Dueland Operation Codename) and 12 Hazmat suited figures (Empress Miniatures) for my Zombie game. Well that's it for my short show album. I'm a little closer to home, ready for a brew and feet up on the sofa.
