So me, my business partner and a couple of the guys from Portal Wargaming Centre
made the trip to the ExCel centre in London for the 2014 Salute Wargames Show.
As we approached the ExCel Centre excitment grew for the day ahead, we had no real plan but knew we’d be eyeing up things from the guys at West Wind Productions as well as a few other manufacturers. We entered the event on traders badges thanks to Wendy and Andy Cooper from West Wind and had a brief walk around as the traders were setting up and caught a glimpse of the awesome demo game from our friends over at Leicester Phat Cats, Ant & Coops. Then after a brief chat with Tim Ryder at the West Wind stand we met our friend who had queued for a ticket and set about exploring!
We saw plenty of cool tables but I couldn’t get a picture of all so here is a coupl that caught my eye:
Then the day was dominated by one manufacturer – Mierce Miniatures and so Salute Day 2014 Shall be known by the guys from Portal as DARKLANDS DAY!!
We approached the stand and drooled over the sheer scale of the miniatures at hand (pun intended, see pics)
These huge figures are Premium Quality Resin Miniatures, some standing as tall as 200mm high!! They are cast my master craftsmen at Mierce’s own facility and are sculpted by an array of awesome tallent!
We had a chance to watch a demo game and talk to the Managing Director, as well as the helpful and enthusiastic staff !! We broke away several times but after a few paces found ourselves drooling over the painted miniatures in the cabinets and those on display in bare resin…..and so DARKLANDS day was born!
I cannot praise these models and the gameplay more highly..it is a must for all my fellow #WARMONGERS to check out, oh and did I tell you it is on kickstarter for the next week!?
Go check it out guys and gals, you won’t be disappointed!!
SCORPIUS GLC OUT FOR NOW!
