I rarely remember to dig the camera out in the madness of Salute but I did manage a quick whisk around later in the day to snap those that jumped out at me. This year, there seemed to be fewer 'wow' games for me, with the number of skirmish systems evidencing itself in the number of smaller tables. Of course, those showcase tables were usually very nicely presented, but do miss some of the spectacle of a massed battle games at a major show. There were also quite a few tables I remember from last year making a repeat performance.
First up, Wyvern Wargamers with Battle of the Marne
Miniatures and terrain by Kallistra. I got to roll dice on this one and really enjoyed the simple rules and grand maneuvers involving hundreds of troops on the table.
South London Warlords with their lovely Battle of Barbastro 1837
Mostly Perry miniatures Carlist War
Wargames Soldiers and Strategy and Simon Miller, C-Day: Caesar's invasion of Britain
Lovely table, fairly flat without being featureless.
Beautiful units all over
Not sure on this one but I liked the unusual groundwork
White Hart Wargames with Allan Quartermaine and the Lost City
The Battle of Keren 1941 by Newark Irregulars - great use of a vertical board but damn hard to capture in a photograph
Eastern Front WWII
Something Cold War Gone Hot?
Sword Beach on D-Day, I believe
Not sure who put it on, but this was a stunning game using Paul Hicks Dien Bien Phu sculpts
